Some of you teacher’s and staff may know our alumna. However, I was informed yesterday that our alumna Anjana Sachdev, sadly passed away on Tuesday. It brought a lot of tears and heartache to know that such a young, fun, loving and charismatic girl has left us while still so young. The NIST community is deeply saddened by the news of Anjana Sachdev’s passing.

From what I gathered, Anjana had Thalassemia and went to Bumrungrad hospital a couple of days ago to undergo a Stem cell (bone marrow) operation which had a 80-20 chance of success to completely cure her from Thalassemia. However, 2 days after the surgery, Anjana faced a complication where an infection had been formed and went to the brain. Anjana before passing away, has donated her body and organs to charity hence there will be no funeral.

A sad day indeed !  Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
