We are raising funds to assist the family of Damodar Pathak. He was shot and killed in cold blod at the place of his work around 11:30pm, Monday night, January 9th, 2012. He was taken to Grady Memorial hospital, where later he was pronounced dead. Atlanta Police Department has the suspects in their custody.
His children Nicky Pathak (13) and Nicholas Pathak (9) are currently staying at Lalitpur, Nepal. Without the bread winner of a family, even simple everyday routines becomes increasingly difficult. With the drop of your support and love, these kids will have peace of mind when it comes to their basic needs and their school fees, until the permanent solution to their problem comes along.
Once again, time has come to show our unity, togetherness, and prove ourselves that we are here for each other. Our friend Damodar would have done the same, God forbid, if this had happened to me or you.
In the face of unexplainable pain you will provide an undeniable hope, I know with your generous support, this will bring a smile in Damodar Peter Pathakâ€™s face knowing his kids will be ok in his absence.
Sincerely, Pranaya Lama
President/ Nepalese Association of Georgia
My heart is filled with sadness to inform you that my very dear friend Damodar Pathak (Peter) is no longer with us. His life was ended by unknown gunman at the place of his work around 11:30pm, Monday night. He was taken to Grady Memorial hospital, where later he was pronounced dead. Atlanta Police Department are looking for the suspect(s) and investigating this case as of the latest update.
He was a wonderful father, husband and friend; above all he was “Pathak Sir” to most of us in Atlanta. I’ll never forget his soft voice, yet his sense of humor that cheered the room full of friends. For many years I have valued the friendship, kindness and thoughtfulness that he shared with me.
I cannot imagine the pain friends and family of his are feeling right now; however, I know for certain that we never lose the people we love. Not even to the death. They continue to participate in every acts, thoughts and decisions we make. Late Pathak have left an indelible imprint in our memories.
With the deepest sympathy,
Nepalese Association of Georgia.
