Mahendra K Premi passed away in the morning of December 24, 2020, leaving behind a rich legacy of rigorous work in empirical research and inclusive relationship at Jawaharlal Nehru University. He taught and guided a large number of students at the Centre for the Study of Regional Development for over 40 years. Besides making significant contribution in analysing and interpreting demographic changes in the country in the context of global development, he helped many colleagues like me have a proper population perspective for building a framework for studies in regional development.
