His cousin was the distinguished astrophysicist Amal Raychaudhuri whose work is fundamental in the Hawking-Penrose theory of singularity formulation in Cosmology. I once had exchanged emails with Brigadier sahib about his distinguished cousin who had just passed away in 2005. In his posts he was thoughtful, insightful and treated everyone with courtesy and respect, a true professional. May his tribe increase.
Also his uncle was the eminent historian Hemachandra RayChaudhri.
