Seshakumar Aragam Obituary

Seshakumar (Sesha) K. Aragam passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 at the age of 93 surrounded by his close family.

Sesha was born to Krishna Rao and Gouramma Aragam on July 18, 1930 in Bangalore, India, the eldest of nine children.  He was married to the late Prema Aragam for 51 years until her passing in 2012. 

Sesha studied at B.M.S. College of Engineering in Bangalore and received his Masters in Business Administration from Osmania University in Hyderabad, India.  His professional journey spanned 48 years, including managerial roles with Hindusthan Machine Tools and Central Machine Tools.  His work took him to places near and far, including a one-year collaboration in Paris, France, for which he learned both French and German. He immigrated to the United States in 1981 where he worked for IBM, MIT, and served as CEO for VNS America, a computer hardware company in Marlboro, MA.

While an engineer by profession, Sesha’s true passions were in sports and the arts.  He played both cricket and softball in college and was an active member of the Mysore State Cricket Association serving as umpire and official scorer for various league and international matches. 

A talented painter, he was the premier Rangoli (colored sand) artist in Bangalore, creating large portraits of prominent scientists such as Albert Einstein for the city’s Science Exhibition.  A versatile actor, he took lead roles in several stage productions in Bangalore like MacBeth, My Three Angels, and The Teahouse of the August Moon. In his later years, Sesha continued to draw and paint whenever inspiration struck.  In addition, he actively nurtured a passion for the arts among those around him, often inspiring them to explore their own creative talents.

Sesha shared a close bond with his siblings and is survived by Lakshmi (late Nagaraj), Subramanya, Saroja, Padma (late Satya), Nagabhushana, Gopalakrishna (Jayashri), and Uma (Krishna), and many adoring nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. He was predeceased by his next born, Parvati as an infant and loving youngest sister Pushpavalli (Jagannath).

A funeral service to honor Sesha’s life will be held on Friday, February 9, 2024 at Rural Cemetery, 180 Grove Street, Worcester, MA at 11:00 AM, followed by cremation.
