In Memory Of Mahadevan Chandrabose

August 5th 1948 - July 21st 2021

 
APPA
 

Born in Jaffna, Mahadevan Chandrabose (affectionately known as 'Bose' by friends and family) left Sri Lanka at a young age after attending Union College ஐக்கிய கல்லூரி in Tellippalai, in search of a better education,
business opportunities, and to explore the world.
 
After living and studying in London, he returned to Sri Lanka to marry his wife, Arunthathy, who was with him in sickness and health until his final days.

Bose and Arunthathy had two children who they raised in Winnipeg. Shubashini inherited his strong-willed nature, entrepreneurial spirit,  and sense of adventure. Suren is similar to his dad in his kindness, warmth  and generosity. They both carry on his love of The Beatles. 
 
From Winnipeg, Bose and Arunthathy helped dozens of people immigrate to Canada, including his parents, his twin sister, and several of his brothers. They were all able to raise their children together in a beautiful and safe family oriented neighborhood. They spent time sharing meals, celebrating birthdays, weddings, and enjoying every day life. He touched countless of families around the world with his charity and many have expressed a deep gratitude to him for the lives they're able to lead because of Bose's benevolence and altruism. 

Although Bose had a variety of illnesses throughout his life, he never let them slow him down. With the goal of spending his retirement traveling with his wife and children, he returned to Sri Lanka to spend his old age. Sadly, his plans were cut short. However, he was surrounded by family and friends who cared for him immensely and he was able to find joy until the end. 
 
Bose's daughter gathered his bones and ashes and sent them off to sea
in a traditional Hindu ceremony at Keerimalai கீரிமலை
- a spot he frequented and loved during his early days in Jaffna.
