Published on 27 February, 2017 at 4:43 pm By

She set an example as Mumbai’s first woman collector. But just before her death Sharwaree Gokhale donated her house to the Centre for Brain Research.

The 1974 batch IAS officer died of cancer on January 15, 2016. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer and underwent treatment for three years, including chemotherapy.

Yet none of that proved helpful to Gokhale, who had retired as additional chief secretary (environment) after serving for 36 years.

According to Mumbai Mirror, she bequeathed her apartment at Ashirwad Co-operative Housing Society in Andheri (W) to the CBR, which is an autonomous body under the Indian Institute of Sciences in Bengaluru.

Her Will states that she wanted her savings and property to remain in India and used for scientific research.



Gokhale, who never married, is survived by a brother who resides in the US.

Her decision to donate her house to CBR came when she realised she wouldn’t survive her battle with cancer.

“Her gift to the CBR will help in furthering our knowledge of human brain especially with reference to age-related brain disorders,” the CBR said.

Gokhale passed away just six days after signing the Will.
