Kali Pratim Datta Chowdhury Obituary
KALI PRATIM DATTA CHOWDHURY was born on the 29th of March, 1949 to one of the most renowned families in Sylhet. Sylhet is a major urban region of northeastern Bangladesh known of its affluence. He is the son of the late Kali Pada Chowdhury, a prominent leader of his time, and the late Shova Datta Chowdhury. He is survived by his wife Jyotsana Datta Chowdhury; two children Kali Prasun (Duke) Chowdhury and Priyanka Datta (Diana) Chowdhury; and brothers Dr. Kali P. Chaudhuri and Kali Prabir Chowdhury. Duke is a part time teacher and PHD candidate and Diana is an accomplished student. 'KPD', as he was affectionately known in Bangladesh, achieved many levels of excellence in his academic and professional career, with several notable distinctions. In academics, these included a Masters Degree in English, a Post Graduate (Doctorate) PHD equivalent in Sanskrit and a ranking of Sanskrit Scholar. Additionally, he had the distinction of passing the BCS (Bangladesh Civil Service) examination, an Elite Clearance for high ranking government officials. Professionally, among his most significant positions when he was in Bangladesh, he was the DC (District Commissioner) of Kusthia. This was one of the highest ranked government appointments in the region. He took early retirement as the under - secretary of Finance for the Government of Bangladesh and traveled to America. After his arrival in the United States, he continued his efforts and became very involved in both work and volunteer activities as well as philanthropy. While maintaining his position as the Vice President of KPC Resolution Company, he also was the President of the Hemet Lions Club and was extremely active in interfaith Social Services in the Hemet San Jacinto Valley. Kali Pratim was a well read and articulate man. As many who knew him have noted, he was an interesting man to listen to and talk to, someone who could understand and appreciate your personal point of view. His interest and respect for all religions was well known and admired. He once met with the Dalai Lama in his pursuit of knowledge of all faiths. Kali Pratim Datta Chowdhury died on the night of February 18, 2014. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
