Obituary of Snehlata Chakraburtty

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Snehlata Chakraburtty (our Gogi) on Sunday, January 9th, 2022 at the age of 83. Loving wife of Joti Chandra Chakraburtty and daughter of the late Bansilal and Indravati Ahuja. She will be missed dearly by daughters Meena and Bina and their families and especially by her four grandchildren Bharat, Arjun, Saakshi and Divya. She was happily married for 63 years and lived in many parts of the world, born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. She graduated as a physician from the Royal College of Physicians in Dublin, Ireland. She worked as a Physician in Africa, England, Newfoundland and Ontario. In participation with Chinmaya Mission and CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) Snehlata did rural development and women’s empowerment work in Northern India for 25 years. She was also the initiator of the first Chinmaya Mission in Canada located in St. John’s NF. Her eager wish to help those in need of Spiritual knowledge drove her to writing over 13 published books and conducting numerous Meditation and Pranayama classes all over Ontario. Her final resting place was in Minden, Ontario among pristine forests, her greenhouse of orchids, stitching projects and raising and contributing back to wildlife. Snehlata touched the lives of all those she met.
