A Great Soul Left

A Great Soul Left

PHOTO 2020A great chapter comes to an abrupt end… Today, at 60, he leaves us and his family behind and moves ahead in his spiritual journey. We have lost an excellent human being. 

Chandra - He was one of the long-standing stalwarts – a 1984 Chartered Accountant and serving the profession in Kuwait for over 30 years. His contribution to the audit and accounting profession is beyond measure. 

As the head of the Audit practice and as a member of the IFRS leadership group at RSM International - his thoughts and insights have influenced many current and past employees, as well as clients across the globe.   

He is highly respected equally by his colleagues and clients. He has stood side by side with the leadership of the firm, adding value to clients and has seen through various events and upheavals that the region has faced over 30 years.   

He was a mentor, god father, friend, philosopher, guide to many people who were trained directly under him. His patience to carefully guide them through their lapses and that too with an assuring smile was his unique trademark.

The time and resources he spent in social service and volunteer activities in India shows his humaneness. His association and contribution to the Tamil community in Kuwait is also fondly remembered by the community.  

On the spiritual side, Chandra was highly principled in abiding with all the human values and rituals as prescribed and upheld the highest level of austerity with devotion. He never missed his prayers and ‘Satsanghs’. 

He was a highly qualified professional – Bachelor of Commerce from Madras Christian College, India – following which he qualified as a Chartered Accountant from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India in 1984. He was also a Certified Public Accountant (AICPA, USA) as well as a Certified Information Systems Auditor (ISACA, USA).  

Chandra leaves behind his wife, two daughters (one recently married) and son in law. Chandra is no more but his knowledge and endearing presence will live forever in our hearts. We will miss him. 

Our prayers are with his family at this difficult time. May God grant peace and rest to the departed soul.
