Памяти Санджая Раджханса

Факультет социальных наук сообщает о смерти преподавателя кафедры публичной политики Санжая Раджханса и выражает соболезнование семье и коллегам.

Памяти Санджая Раджханса

Санжай – вышкинец. Он успешно завершил двухлетнюю магистерскую программу «Политический анализ и публичная политика» НИУ ВШЭ, защитил диплом по теме «Использование мягкой силы во внешней политике Индии», был приглашен к преподаванию на кафедру публичной политики.

Санжай умел создать необыкновенную атмосферу соучастия, взаимоподдержки, межкультурного общения в многонациональном коллективе студентов и преподавателей. Совместно со студентами Санжай создал традицию ежегодного проведения «Недели прав человека», в котором принимали участие других факультетов и приглашённые эксперты.

Санжай разработал и вел интересные учебные курсы: "Human Rights in Non-Western Societies", "Methodology and Research Methods of Political Science", "Humanitarian Actions", а в 2018 и 2020 годах признавался лучшим преподавателем. Он занимался исследовательской работой. Авторитетным международным журналом European Policy Analysis в 2021 году принята к печати статья “Problem complexity and narratives in Moscow's waste controversy”, подготовленная в рамках научно-учебной группы в соавторстве с профессорами и студентами.

Летом этого года Санжаю выпали тяжелые испытания, в Индии, где он дожидался получения визы, чтобы возвратиться в Москву к преподаванию, он перенес одну за другой малярию и Ковид-19, в перерывах между болезнями старался не оставлять работы и продолжал удаленно участвовать в преподавании. Видимо, постковидные осложнения дали о себе знать, сердце не выдержало и 21 июля Санжай покинул нас.

Санжай – жизнерадостный открытый, ищущий человек, отличный преподаватель и исследователь, он прекрасный друг и отец двух несовершеннолетних дочек-близняшек. Нам трудно принять его утрату, мы по-прежнему считаем его частью нашего общего дела, в которое он внес много душевных сил, оптимизма и своей светлой энергии.

Мы собрали воспоминания и обращения от студентов, преподавателей и выпускников программы

Это чудовищная несправедливость Для нас с Ниной это личная утрата

It is with great sadness that we learned of the recent death of Sanjay Kumar Rajhans, Senior Lecturer of the Public Policy Department, Faculty of Social Sciences (HSE). With this message we would like to express our deepest condolences to his family and colleagues on behalf of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. We had the opportunity to host his lectures at the Scuola twice, and we will always remember his dedication to research, depth of knowledge, and enthusiasm.

Sincere condolences,

Prof. Andrea Mina
Pro-Rector for International Relations Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna


In the lives of mankind, it is undeniably true that death is inevitable but yours came unexpectedly like a tsunami throwing the entire students of the Political Analysis & Public Policy 2017/19 academic year group into a massive shock. It took us  by surprise when the announcement of your death broke into the public sphere, and we find it very hard to believe and accept that an academic hero and giant is no more with us on this mother earth. Your departure has left an irreparable crack in our hearts and minds as this day will be remembered as the day that darkness befalls us all.  Your actions and inactions were a true example of service to mankind such that at the peril of your health and hard times you continued to render your teaching and other academic responsibilities to us (your students) without even leaving notification to us as a student body. You treated us equally with love, care, respect, and progressively nurtured and mentored us to be the drivers of change to make the world a better place. We always ran to your office whenever we were in trouble and not a single day did you reject us. You stood and fought for us all even at a time we least expected it. Indeed, our hearts are truly broken because we have lost a great teacher, caring father, mentor and friend. Your memories shall forever remain in our hearts and minds. Until we meet again, we say rest well in the bosom of the Almighty God as perfect peace be with you. The students of the Political Analysis & Public Policy 2017/19 academic year group love you very much Professor Sanjay K. Rajhans.

This is absolutely unbelievable. My heart had pulsed upon seeing his photos on a friend's WhatsApp story. Professor Sanjay, while he lived, was full of life. You could read that from his eyes.

Forever in our hearts. I feel disappointed in life .- Wepari Ebenezer

Mr. Sanjay, I will always thank you for the knowledge, experience and wisdom that you gave me. I will always thank you for the optimism that you shared with everyone who happened to be around you (lucky we are!). And I will always thank you for the good friends that you introduced me to when I felt lonely. You will greatly be missed, Professor. — Rinat Tairov      

Querido Sanjay, honestly, it  took me so long to sit here and to write…knowing that you are  not able to read me anymore, despite that, I will allow myself to express my feelings here. I could write pages, listing all the things I've learned and embraced from you,  all the wisdom you have spread not just through your lectures,  lessons, theories, “your Amartya Sen’s capability approach” (that I will remember and use for ever)... all the papers, all the readings, all the shared folders, pictures,  moments, conferences, food, walks… Thank you for being there, to support, to encourage me, to help me out finding myself, and “my  life  research proposal”.  Last time we talked, I shared with you my experiences as a teacher for the last year. I've been  thinking of you in many of my classes, searching for the right thoughts, words, and paths to become a good teacher. Thank you for guidance,  you are light, and will be light, love, sense, and inspiration for me during this process. Your memory will  be eternal in my heart and soul, as your presence on earth reminds me how this world is full of kindness, love and beautiful beings as you. May your soul rest in peace and love, wonderful being. Eternal gratitude, Hugs to heaven, María José.
