According to an official release from Raj Bhavan, Ravi, who specialised in the dynamics of human migration in South Asia, worked extensively on the political sociology of border population. He played a crucial role in conflict resolutions in areas affected with ethnic insurgencies. “He was the architect of India’s international cooperation in counter terrorism and intelligence sharing,” the release said.
As chairman of the joint intelligence committee in the Prime Minister’s office, he coordinated the agencies to meet the intelligence needs of the country.
