The Mathura-born ambassador has been at the forefront of India's multi-focused diplomatic efforts during Sri Lanka's worst economic crisis, ensuring that Indian assistance is disbursed quickly, also denying rumours that Indian soldiers have been deployed on the island at a time when its rulers -- the Rajapaksas -- face angry, daily, protests outside the president and prime minister's homes.
