He was an avid traveler with an international heart who enjoyed music, supporting his favorite Boston sports teams, watching cooking shows, following current affairs as a “political news junkie”, and spending time with his family and friends.
Indian by birth and American by choice, Raktim was extremely loving and proud of his two sons, Rajeev (wife Marisa) of Hoboken, NJ and Sanjeev “Mickey” (wife Ester) of Madrid, Spain. He is also survived by his wife and best friend, Neeta (Saha) Nath; his two sisters, Rita (husband Bhaskar) Goswami of Los Angeles, and Rashmita (husband Raj) Salvi of Vancouver; his brother Rajat (wife Shyama) Nath of Mumbai, India.
