Das’s wife, Usha Ojha, is the proprietor of the Upasana Palace hotel at Ganeshguri and Hotel Usha Regency at Barpeta. The couple was instrumental in shaping the hospitality industry in the region.
His last rites will be performed at the Nabagraha Crematorium at 3:30 pm on Tuesday.
Das’s passing is a significant loss for the business community, the social sector, and the people of Guwahati.
His legacy of entrepreneurship, social responsibility, and community engagement will continue to inspire generations to come.
