Today morning we got this sad news of the demise of our dear friend and Yoga Guru Mr Rupin Bhowmik and sport enthusiast at the age of 81 years. He was one of the rare friends me and my wife cultivated in Tripura. While leaving Tripura in April 2015 I could never imagine that such an energetic fitness freak would meet his end too soon as even at that time he used to come to meet us and go around as far as Ambasa at the age of 76 in his motor cycle.

He was humility personified, epitome of virtues and a man of impeccable character, courteous, ever helpful and sincere, gentle and having passion for his hobbies of Yoga and sports. He deeply admired and practiced the Indian cultural values and was well supported by his wife who belonged to the family of great Indian scientist JC Bose. He has risen in Yoga so much so that he was offered a programme in USA which he refused and instead promoted sports activities in Tripura and other parts of India with a great following as he was also the Vice-President of All India Yoga Federation. Our initial contact with him wasin 2004 when someone told my wife to show her back problem to Mr Rupen Bhowmik. He cured her of her back and she is ever grateful to him for this. He also helped me during 2014 when I had a slip disc while playing golf in Agartala BSF golf course. And lot many officers and other people will be mourning his death. His contribution to sports in Tripura is unforgettable and so his contribution to the farmers for providing farming inputs at a very reasonable price.

Mr Bhowmik was blessed with excellent health and a razor sharp mind but soon after he lost his wife he went into depression and never recovered. Last 19th February 2020 we went to meet him in Agartala when he was sick and we could notice that he is struggling to come to terms with his condition. His Son Indranil has been looking after him so well for past few years and had set an example for others as to how to take care of old parents. Hope he and his family bears the loss with fortitude

Mr Rupen Bhowmik you were an icon of the youth in Tripura and an example to be emulated by all as many would be dreaming to be like you. But the God saw you tiring and struggling and a cure was not available for you, so he put his arms around you and whispered come on and be with me. That is the best way to describe one of the rare multifaceted sons produced by Tripura.
