Islamic Finance Writings of V Sundararajan by Jaseem Ahmed and Harinder S Kohli pdf free download. I hope to be forgiven for beginning this note on a personal nature. I knew Dr. Sundararajan as a colleague and friend for most of his professional life. I first came to know him when he joined the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a budding young economist, saw him evolve into a highly admired world-class professional and then encouraged him to join the Centennial Group International.

I was, therefore, greatly shocked and saddened by Sundararajan’s sudden and untimely death in April 2010. But now that time is slowly healing the shock, the overwhelming feeling that remains with me is one of gratitude for having known him for over thirty-five years and having benefited from his intellect, knowledge, kindness, and generosity. Rajan, as he was generally known, was a brilliant man, a man of very sharp and versatile intellect. Having been educated in the economics of free markets, he could advise, with subtle versatility, countries with communist systems; and being a devout Hindu Brahmin, he could help effectively countries working to develop their financial systems consistently with the tenets of Islam.

Rajan was also a simple, honest, and kind man. I can say from personal experience that he gave his time and shared generously his intellect and knowledge with whoever approached him for help. He always smiled and was ever ready to laugh heartily. After having earned his Master’s degree from the Indian Statistical Institute and his Doctorate (Economics) from Harvard, and having taught at New York University for several years, Rajan joined the IMF in 1974. I first met him then as we were both in IMF’s Asian Department. From
early on, Rajan was most impressive with his analytical skills, his ability to work with data and draw reliable conclusions from them, and his quick and fluent writing skills.

While Rajan served at the IMF—and I use the word “served” advisedly—because that is what he really did for the institution and its member countries, he rose to senior positions. But the positions he occupied did not really matter—certainly not to him. It was the volume and the quality of his work that mattered to IMF’s member countries and, most importantly, to Rajan himself. After several years in IMF’s Asian Department, where he provided analysis and advice on macroeconomic and financial policy issues in IMF surveillance activity and negotiations for lending to member countries, Rajan moved to the Monetary and Financial side of IMF’s work where he stayed for twenty years.

Without at all belittling the former, I would say that it was his work in the latter period that one thinks of when one thinks of Rajan in the IMF. The quality of Rajan’s work was reflected in the fact that many countries and institutions he worked with called him back again and again for help, even well after he had left the IMF. With regard to the volume, perhaps the following one sentence encapsulates it: In the twenty years following 1983, he worked with over fifty countries in Asia, the Middle East, former Soviet Union, and Central and Eastern Europe.

In these countries he provided advice, operational support, and technical assistance to central
banks and governments on a wide range of financial markets and systems issues; supervised policy development and research on financial sector restructuring and financial sector stability with particular focus on central banking and regulation. He helped establish and modernize central banks in transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe and former Soviet Union.
