Chennai-based management consultant K.S. Narendran was a shattered man on Saturday as his wife Chandrika was on the Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight that went missing with 239 passengers and crew.
He is praying for the good news — that his wife is alive and safe — from the Malaysia Airlines authorities.
“The family is shattered. He is not in a mental make-up to answer his phone. His wife Chandrika was on the Malaysia Airlines plane that is said to have crashed,” N. Venugopal of the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), said.
Chandrika headed ICSF as its executive secretary and was on her way “to attend a conference organised by Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in Mongolia," Venugopal said.
“The couple has one daughter who is studying in New Delhi,” Venugopal said.
He said Chandrika is a hardworker and a friendly person.
