With deepest grief we like to inform you all that Sri Samir Kumar Payne of 1966 batch, ex General Secretary of the Alumni association passed away today (19th October, 2018) at his residence in Genexx Valley, Joka, Kolkata.

He left behind his wife and son.

One of the main architects of building our Alumni Association, Samir da, elder brother of Pradip Payne of 1968 batch, was an outstanding goalkeeper and a remarkable Tabla player.

He will be remembered for his very jovial nature and his immense contribution in building this Alumni Association.

May his soul rest in peace is our prayer to the Almighty.

Samir Da, an ex student of Deogarh also, had taken an active participation in the renovation and acquisition of Balaram Mandir(back portion), Kolkata and stood very firmly with Swami Putanandaji Maharaj(Kalidpada Maharaj) at that time.

He took a very active role for Swami Hiranmayanandaji Maharaj when some crisis had cropped up after respected Maharaj had stepped down as General Secretary of Ramakrishna Math and Mission.

It is mainly due to his efforts Hiranmayananda ji Maharaj had attended every single Reunion during his life time. Once he had moved to Benaras with this batch mate Subhas Chandra Chaudhuri to invite Maharaj and take him to Purulia.

May his soul rest in peace- Samir Da jekhanei achen, bhalo thakben.
