Vengangudi S.Krishnaswamy was known as VSK for short. He was VSK uncle, VSK Athimber, VSK periappa and so on. He was loved by his family, his coworkers in Geological Survey of India and by everyone who came into contact with him. He was a warehouse of knowledge. In addition to his grasp and expertise in his chosen field of Geology, he was well versed in his religion, Hinduism. He was an ardent Bhakta of Sri Rama. He used to pray for hours on Sri Rama Navami(birthday of Sri Ram) reading Tulsi das Ramayan(Hindi), Valmiki Ramayan(Sanskrit), and Kamba Ramayan(Tamil). He enhanced (in his 80's)short version of Sri Ramayan written earlier by an American University professor and addied translations in six languages(the language spoken in the regions as Sri Ram traveled across India to Sri Lanka). He authored an essay tracing Sri Rama's trek through the major portions of India quoting from Sri Ramayan and linking those places with his knowledge of geology. He has always been helpful to all people whenever they needed help irrespective of their status in the society or wealth. We all will miss him and would miss his energetic and cheerful voice asking 'How are you?'. whether in person or over the phone.
Sri Ram would be happy to welcome him to His abode. VSK will be able to pray and sing songs in praise of Him in His presence.
