Born in Saidpur, Bengal British India, Jamini Chowdhury pursued a dream that would lead him first to England and then ultimately to the United States. Raised in a Brahmin household of hereditary Jute farmers Jamini was tantalized by visions of the wider world. Joining the British Army he was just in time to be part of the occupation forces in post war Japan. Jamini was trained as a mechanic. His demobilization coincided with India’s independence. He returned to rejoin his family; newly relocated to Calcutta as a result of partition. He plied his trade as a mechanic, even owning his own garage for a brief period. Fate brought him to Glaxo laboratories where he met the love of his life, Eileen. Their love would span six decades and three continents. After a brief courtship, Eileen immigrated to the United Kingdom, followed a few years later by Jamini. Once in London, Jamini worked several jobs, including a stint as a clerk at Selfridges. Eileen supported Jamini as he pursued his degree in electrical engineering at he prestigious Faraday house. Upon graduation he started on his career as an engineer. Concerned about the huge amount of food spoilage in his native India, Jamini gravitated towards the cooling and refrigeration industry. Marriage followed soon after. Jamini and Eileen were anxious to complete their household with the addition of a child. Their fondest wish was granted with the birth of their son, Robin. Finding the employment opportunities in the UK stifling, Jamini took a position with Carrier Corporation in Saudi Arabia. As he elevated his young family’s propects he grew unhappy at being separated from his wife and child. He accepted a position at Carrier’s world headquarters in Syracuse, New York. After five years of loyal service he sought a position in Orlando with a Carrier distributor. During his career he earned a reputation for integrity, diligence and technical excellence. Jamini retired to spend his days reading and caring for the medical needs of Eileen. After Eileen’s passing Jamini renewed his interest in Indian history and the study of pure mathematics. Jamini loved animals and enjoyed gardening and reading. He will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind, generous and principled man. He was a devoted husband and a loving father. His integrity has become the thing of legend. He will be sorely missed by those of us who had the privilege to know him. Jamini is survived by his adopted son Ramnik, his son Robin and daughter-in-law Jennifer.
