Bharat Ratna and Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen death news false, daughter confirms he is alive.
A Twitter user Claudia Goldin tweeted that Amartya Sen is dead. Her tweet read "A terrible news. My dearest Professor Amartya Sen has died minutes ago. No words."
However, the family of the Nobel prize winner also confirmed that the news of his death is fake. His daughter Nandana Sen also denied the rumours tweeting, “Friends, thanks for your concern but it’s fake news: Baba is totally fine. We just spent a wonderful week together w/ family in Cambridge—his hug as strong as always last night when we said bye! He is teaching 2 courses a week at Harvard, working on his gender book—busy as ever!”
The tweet about Amartya Sen's death was from the fake account of Claudia Goldin, another Nobel prize winner in economics. The real handle of Claudia Goldin is @PikaGoldin.
During an extensive career spanning nearly seven decades, Amartya Sen has made contributions to numerous fields – from welfare economics and social choice theory to economic and social justice and public health. He received the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1998 for his work.
He holds more than 100 honorary degrees from institutions on five continents and even received an honorary Doctor of Laws from Harvard Law School in 2000. The Bharat Ratna awardee is currently a professor of economics and philosophy at Harvard University.
