Dollar Seshadri, the man for all seasons at Tirumala suffered a massive heart attack and has been hospitalized at SVIMS hospital at Tiruapti. The entire top guns of TTD administration rushed to the hospital to be at his bedside as his condition was stated to be serious.
Pala Sheshadri, an superintendent of the TTD in temple service has just got his fourth extension as protocol officer, although a regulation is in force not to employ anyone over 60. He was retained by the last TTD board for a third time as OSD of temple rituals and to groom a successor to take his place. Sheshadri, who is in his mid-sixties, is known for his VIP management skills and has, over the years, cultivated direct access to people who matter, be it governors, chief ministers, Union and state ministers, judges or tycoons. When he retired in 2007 as Bokkasam superintendent, he was retained by YSR.
