Krishnama married Rangammal Krishnama Chari. Rangammal was born on 26 Apr 1885 in Trichy. She died in 1973 in Madras.

They had the following children:

+ 81 F i Vedammal Gopala Iyengar
+ 82 M ii Thiruvenkata Chari V.K.
+ 83 M iii Rangaswami V.K.
+ 84 F iv Jayammal Srinivasan
  85 M v Ramaswami V.K. was born in Feb 1928. He died in Oct 1969 in Delhi.

V.K.Ramaswami was considered one of the brilliant economists of his generation. A tragic accident (of carbon monoxide poisoning) in October 1969 brought an end to his remarkable career which was marked by notable contributions to both the conduct of Indian economic policy and the theory of international trade..
He graduated with First Class Honours in Economics from the University of Madras before leaving in 1947 for Balliol College, Oxford, to study Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. His performance at Oxford was excellent; he got a first in the Greats and was awarded the Webb-Medley Scholarship, and a Junior Research Fellowship at Balliol.
Back in India, Ramaswami became a member of the economic research staff of the Reserve Bank of India. This beginning led in time to his becoming the Economic Adviser to the Ministries of Industrial Development and Commerce of the Government of India, and ultimately, the Chief Economic Adviser to the Ministry of Finance, the very top of the economics bureaucracy. To these tasks he brought keenness, hard work, and an acuteness of perception that made him widely admired.
He retained his academic and theoretical interest in economics throughout his government career, and worked on his theoretical papers outside the (long) office hours that he normally kept. Augmented only by two visits, one to Balliol in 1957-58 and another to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Centre for International Studies in 1967-68, supported by an intellectual friendship with Thomas Balogh, and keeping up relationships with economists at the Delhi School of Economics and the Indian Statistical Institute, he published some fifteen important papers by invitation or in refereed journals through the nineteen sixties. These papers were considered important enough to be published in book form by George Allen & Unwin* in 1971, after his death, suitably edited by the three distinguished economists, Jagdish Bhagwati, Harry G. Johnson, and T.N. Srinivasan. The theoretical papers covered the range from the theory of trade and growth to the theory of optimal policy intervention in the presence of distortions and the theory of effective protection; it is of relevance to note that the latter areas of theoretical development were most pertinent to the framing of Indian economic policy relating to tariffs and quantitative restrictions.
It is most interesting to go into the Web and look up what a search engine throws up when his name is introduced. It comes out with a display of the tremendous amount of interest (well into the 1990's) that has been generated by his work on Foreign Trade, and the fundamental quantitative theorems proposed by him in that regard.
