He joined the English faculty of Sri Venkateswara College at New Delhi in 1963. He entered the Indian Administrative Service in 1967 and was allotted to Andhra Pradesh cadre. Sri C.S. Rao worked as Sub-Collector, Chandragiri, an assignment he regarded an auspicious start to his career, as the district is at the foot of the Tirumala Hills. He then worked for three years at Project Officer, Girijan Development Agency, Srikakulam. His work here was highly appreciated by both the tribal people and the government; some of his initiatives were taken as models for replication in similar projects across the country. His next posting was at the State Secretariat as Dy. Secretary in the Finance Department in charge of State Budget. This began his long association with Finance Ministries at both the Centre and the State, as association that would constitute 24 of his 36 years in Government Service. After two years as Dy. Secretary (Budget), he worked as District Collector in two districts, namely Krishna and Visakhapatnam. His work in both districts was highly regarded. His tenure at Krishna district saw him deal with the tidal wave of 1977. In the face of grave adversities arising from the natural calamity itself and the politicization of it, he maintained perspective and did outstanding work. Those who worked closely with him at the time recall that he never showed irritability or lost his cool even in hostile circumstances. He moved to the Ministry of Finance, Government of India in 1981. He worked as Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Finance dealing with State Finances. During this period, he was associated with the formulation of the Overdraft Regulation Scheme that restricted the access of states to overdraft from RBI and also prepared a working paper on Centre-State financial relations for discussion with Sarkaria Commission. After working for 5 years at the Centre, he returned to Andhra Pradesh in 1986 as Secretary Finance, a post in which post he continued till 1994. In May 1990, when the state was affected by a major cyclone, he was entrusted with the preparation of a project report for obtaining World Bank assistance for rehabilitation of the affected area. This project report was prepared in a short period of six weeks and the negotiations with the Bank completed within another two months. The World Bank approved a total assistance of $ 265 million with a stipulation that it be utilized within a three-year period. As it was a multi-sectoral project with a short execution period, he established a Project Monitoring Unit (PMU) within the Ministry of Finance with the overall responsibility of planning and monitoring of the project. The efforts of the PMU resulted in full utilization of aid and completion of the project on time. The Government of India borrowed the PMU concept and facilitated establishment of such units in all states where externally-aided projects are under implementation. On promotion as Principal Secretary to Government of Andhra Pradesh, he headed the state Irrigation Department. He held other important positions in the state such as Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister. In early 1998, he returned to the Government of India as Additional Secretary & Financial Advisor, Ministry of Food and Consumer Affairs.

He retired from the IAS in May, 2003. He was immediately appointed for a 5 year term as the Chairman of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). During his tenure, he was associated with a number of initiatives such as detariffing, the nurturing of health insurance as a sector, and promotion of microinsurance. As Chairman, IRDAI, he was a very active member of the Executive, Technical and Implementation Committees of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS). He took particular interest in the Working Group on Microinsurance. The IAIS had honored him as Distinguished Fellow in the year 2009 for his outstanding contribution to IAIS. After completing his five-year tenure at the Authority, he headed the State Pay Revision Commission for the state of Andhra Pradesh, which submitted its report in December 2009. The report was widely appreciated for the sensitivity displayed in addressing issues faced by employees and pensioners. In 2014, he was appointed Financial Advisor to the Government of Andhra Pradesh. Here, he played a key role in interactions with the Fourteenth Finance Commission, which were crucial for a state dealing with the aftermath of the bifurcation of the combined Andhra Pradesh state into AP and Telangana. In the year 2016, he declined an extension due to declining health, bringing to an end a long and distinguished career. His was a career made remarkable not only by the prestigious designations he held but by the integrity, professionalism, and humility with which he held them. His was a positive disposition, always considerate and courteous to those who came in contact with him. His instinct was to base all decision-making in humanitarian considerations, a quality that was highly valued by colleagues and those impacted by these decisions. He was a self-effacing personality, one who shied away from seeking praise or public acknowledgement. He prefered to be understated, often underplaying his abilities and intellect. There was a simplicity to his approach to his life and work. He was wary of ideological grandstanding or pedantry as a basis for administration. He believed that doing a job efficiently and with the intention of benefiting ordinary people was enough. He always believed in trying to help everyone who reached out to him to the best of his abilities. In the final years, he turned his attention to helping several charitable and religious institutions. At a personal level, he was deeply devoted to God, and particularly to Lord Venkateswara. He attributed all his successes to the grace of God and retained his faith in the most testing of circumstances. Doctors treating him for an advanced lung condition marveled at his ability to stay positive in the face of great suffering. He passed away on June 28, 2018.

When speaking of Shri KVS, one can list the usual information about Shri KVS, date of birth, date of joining service, postings held, date of retirement and ultimately the date of his death. But that does not define him or only partly defines him. It does not bring out his unique, individual characteristics, his in-built value system, his attitude towards life and whole other aspects that were integral to his personality. The essence of his uniqueness is that he while not being the brightest and the best achieved far greater heights than those who were overtly so. He combined the rare virtues of being both a visionary and an implementer. While accepting life as it comes, he tried to learn and implement whatever was within his control. He always felt that the system was not wrong but the people implementing it. The system would as time went by need some upgradation for sure. Instead of setting out to change the system entirely, he tried to improve upon it by doing whatever was within his ambit. He understood the value of “working smart” prioritising the to do list as opposed to working long and late. He was able to make a proper work life balance. He did not start his life being perfect at everything. At one point of time he was an average student too. After entering civil service at the tender age of 22 years he was quite raw in many ways. What made him stand out was his ability to absorb, learn, imbibe and focus. He read a lot. He was never afraid of asking questions even at the cost of being made fun of. He made a note of all his queries and decisions on all files pertaining to his posting at hand. He was committed and loyal to the Govt of India and the state of AP and was grateful for having been given the chance to serve it to the best of his ability. His confidence and decision-making nature, fearless attitude stemmed from his thoroughness and grasp of the subject how ever varied they may be from Dairy Development, to Steel to Glass, Jute and departments like Road Transport, Revenue, Commercial Taxes, Excise, Medical to name a few. He took each posting cheerfully and did his best to improve upon it He had true compassion for the under privileged and in his stints in the districts understood how through various govt policies he can benefit and empower them. What set him apart is that coming from a small town, with no mentors as such he realised his potential, his strengths and built upon them. Everyone can do that! One need not be a gold medallist to achieve great heights All it needs is to learn, understand, analyse remember, use the learning. Confidence comes with thoroughness and compassion and humility stem from listening to others to know their problems. When one realises that there is always something to do however restricted one might be, there is a feeling of purpose as also gratefulness. It is pointless to just criticise without offering a solution This was what Shri KVS did in fact – nothing extraordinary – but with so much conviction that it made him memorable. For academic interest I am appending his Official Timeline He made a mark in every department he served and remains a legendary figure to date among the young and old.

Smt. Sita Devi (1941-2009) was the youngest of three children and only girl child born to Sri Bhamidipati Suryanaryana and his wife Smt. Subbalakskmi. She grew up in Bhimavaram, West Godavari district alongside her brothers Sri BK. Rao and Sri BJ Rao, who were loving and supportive throughout her life. She was married to Sri JVS Rama Sastri while still in college. It was her remarkable capacity to adjust to new surroundings and people that made her transition to Bombay where she joined her husband as a young girl, then later to Hyderabad and New Delhi while her husband was working, and finally to various cities in the United States after his retirement, seem effortless. Besides Telugu and English, she picked up several local languages like Tamil, Marathi and Hindi making close lifelong friends wherever she went, due to her natural social skills and ever-helpful attitude. While her husband was busy at work, Smt. Sita Devi took complete responsibility of managing the home and taking responsibility for the children and extended family. Starting with her early twenties upon the death of her father-in-law, she and her husband assumed responsibility for the well-being of her hysband’s family: performing the marriages of his two siblings, caring for his mother and elder brother in her home and hosting many family members over the years. And she found time to be an exemplary mother. Her focus while raising children was always on developing good values, providing a good education, and teach them responsibility towards family and society, while being spiritually centered. Today, her children are married with children, active in their communities, and in turn taking care of their parents, in –laws and extended families- hopefully fulfilling their mother’s aspirations. She had varied hobbies ranging from knitting, sewing and embroidery to an interest in electrical and similar work such that she enjoyed fixing electrical, appliances and plumbing problems around the house. By the time Sri Sastri retired from the Indian Economic Service (IES) in 1990, all three children had completed their education in India and USA, gaining multiple advanced degrees and being well-placed in careers. This helped greatly in leasding a happy, connected retired life. A true Karma Yoga practitioner, Smt. Sita Devi was deeply spiritually inclined from a young age and after her children became adults, she started spending a lot of time on religious discourses, bhajans, chanting and vedantic literature and also community service. She and her husband undertook pilgrimages with like- minded friends and family. However, she continued to be a pillar of support for her children and a loving grandmother who helped raise her grandchildren. Having completed all her worldly tasks and with no more desires left, she passé away peacefully on an auspicious Poornima (full moon) in December 2009, being stringently prescient about her own death. She will be remembered for a life lived by example - a highly spiritually evolved human with a tremendous capacity for deep love, friendship and hard work, and who was in turn deeply loved and revered. Realising that children’s education was close to her heart, her husband Sri Rama Sastri and children Rajini Kant, Padma Ranjita and Venu Krishna instituted this endowment to provide financial assistance to the deserving. The hope that the beneficiaries too, when they are settled, will “pay forward” by similarly helping deserving yet financially challenged students in the future.

The youngest son Sri Venkata Krishnayya (1895-1964) received BA and BL Degree from Madras University and practiced law in the local district and subordinate courts. Realizing that this profession did not ensure stable income except for the very few extremely successful ones, he encouraged his sons to pursue careers of their interest and expectations. Besides law, Sri Venkata Krishnayya volunteered his time to the promotion of educational facilities in Machilipatnam. He was elected a member of the Managing Committee of the Hindu College, its High School and branches for a number of years. A man of few words, this deeply caring family patriarch lived an exemplary, principled life. Smt.
