Advocate. S.C.Chandrahasan is the son of the iconic Tamil Politician S.J.V Chelvanayakam, (Popularly known as the Mahatma Gandhi of Sri Lanka and Father of the Tamils “Thantai Chelva”) President of the Federal party (later renamed TULF and subsequently TNA). S.C.Chandrahasan is the Founder and Chief Functionary of OfERR. Hailing from an extremely privileged background as scion of one of Sri Lanka’s leading political families, and married to Dr. Nirmala Chandrahasan nee Naganathan, daughter of Federal Party Stalwart and Leader, Senator Dr. Elangai Murugesu Vijayaretnam Naganathan, (M.P.) Chandrahasan began his career as an Advocate in the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka. But his passion for the Tamil cause and its people lead him to embark into Politics by joining the TULF (Federal party) and becoming the legal Secretary to the TULF. Later as war replaced politics and violence replaced SJV Chelvanayakkam’s non violent struggle, He came to India and established OfERR in 1984. Though he lead a life of privilege far removed from the refugees he now works for and works with, S.C.Chandrahasan has donned his Fathers mantle, and now works tirelessly to serve his people by Humanitarianism and Peace building. OfERR stands for Hope and Peace.
