Dear All,

I received these messages today

"With profound sorrow, we inform the sudden demise of Dr. C.S. Viswanatha at Bengaluru a few hours ago.  He was the 9th President of ICI between 1999-2001.  As President of ICI, he made it a point to visit all Centres of ICI.  His contribution to the growth of ICI is commendable and he was the mentor for so many civil engineers.  ICI conveys its heartfelt condolences to the bereaving family members and pray the almighty for his soul to rest in peace.
Regards,
R. Radhakrishnan
Secretary General
Indian Concrete Institute

It is sad that " CSV' is no more, he expired this morning at 8:30, as mentioned by his brother C S Vaidhyanathan.
Founder of ACCE(I), Friend of all, Smiling ever keen, enthusiastic, with zeal of child has guided innumerable persons.
Sad he will not be there with us on Mega event of " Precast Concrete Technology" seminar.
Let his soul rest in peace.
Regards
Umesh B Rao
Umesh B Rao & Co"

We are really shocked to hear the sudden demise of Dr C S Viswanatha. He was my good friend. I met him when I visited India last year at Hyderabad. He was a great structural engineer and professor. He worked for the professional growth of not only ICI but also ACCE(I) as well as several professional bodies. He visited many centers and gave numerous lectures.  He will be remembered for his hard work, dedication and professional knowledge. Lot of us will really miss him. May God Bless his soul in Heaven.

Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family members and friends.
