He was top of his class in high school and attended Bengal Engineering (BE) College in Kolkata, India, where he was a gold medalist.

Manoj initially came to Cleveland, OH, and then lived in Jackson Heights, Queens, until eventually settling with his wife and two sons in Edison, NJ.

  8. A void has been created in Pal family due to the departure of Sejo Mama. I remember my last conversation with him through video calling in 2021 where he talked with me with a smiling face which I have captured in my mobile camera. He had a very pleasing personality and a very caring attitude towards all. I took my first rice at 6 months of age from his hand. I pay my sincere homage to him. May his soul rest in peace in the lap of God.
