The Independent family loses a valued member
STAFF REPORTER
Dr Maswoodur Rahman 
passes away

Dr Maswoodur Rahman, editor of Stethoscope, the weekly health and medical care journal of The Independent, breathed his last at Square Hospital in the capital yesterday.  He was undergoing treatment at the hospital after suffering a stroke on January 10. He also underwent treatment for a week at the CMH, Dhaka.

He will be buried at the Azimpur new cemetery after the namaz-e-Janaza at Dormitory Mosque on Green Road after Jum’a prayers today.

Dr Rahman, who is also known by his nickname Prince, was 72. He is survived by his widow and a daughter.  Many of his relatives, friends, colleagues and well-wishers gathered at the family home on Green Road after the body was brought there from the hospital. Soft-spoken, gentle and amiable by nature, Dr Rahman served the Bangladesh Army and Dhaka University. He worked as the chief medical officer of the Bangladesh Chemical Industries Corporation. He received the 20th Global Media Award in 1999 for best performance in the individual reporting category on population by the Population Institute, based in Washington, DC. He attended various seminars, symposia, workshops and a special session of UNGA in 1999.

Dr Rahman served as the int’l vice-president and national president of the Service Civil International, an international voluntary and peace campaign association. He was on the board of directors of the Research and Academic Organisation's 'Centre for Development Research - Bangladesh'. He was also involved with the Development Centre International and Kalantor, a cultural organisation. Dr Rahman wrote and published a number of books in both Bengali and English. These include books on Bengali rhymes (Chhoray Chhoray Gyaner Pora, Dhakka, Chhora-Chimti, Dui Bondhu, Dui Digonto—Dui Dhara) and books on healthcare-related topics (Sasthaya Kotha o AIDS Tothyo, Coronary Artery Diseases.)
