A Mangalorean PM and his RBI Governor Brother: The Extraordinary story of the Benegal Brothers

Summary:
Superb piece by Dr Anil Shetty: What if I told you that a Mangalorean was once a Prime Minister and was also one of the principal framers of the Constitution of India? And that his equally accomplished brother was the longest serving Governor of the Reserve Bank of India? The headline might sound like click bait, but all of it is true – this is the incredible true story of Mangalore’s Benegal brothers.   He goes onto narrate the story of Sir Benegal Narsing Rau who became PM of J&K and even drafted the Constitution. Sir Benegal Rama Rau who became RBI Governor. The third brother became Dean of Benaras University (no small feat either).
