Arup Sen, Director of ezeego1, succumbs to Covid

The latest casualty of Covid-19 is Arup Sen, Director Ezeego One Travel & Tours Limited, who breathed his last on Friday 25th September, 2020 in Goa. Sen succumbed to Covid at a time when some names from the travel industry have recovered or are undergoing treatment from this pandemic. 

Sen, 63, was the Director of Ezeego1 since January 6, 2006. He was also the Executive Director of Royale Indian Rail Tours Limited, based in New Delhi. From 1989 until 2007, he worked with Cox & Kings, elevating to the ranks of Director - Special Projects. 

Neelu Singh, former CEO of ezeego1, remembers Sen as a people’s person who was approachable to employees across hierarchy. “So many people in the company confided in him, and also looked up to him for his guidance. His death has come as a shock to me; we worked closely since the inception of the company. He was an institution himself with years of industry knowledge, and his involvement in strategic decisions gave a new direction to the business ideas. He believed in building long-standing relationships, professional as well as personal, and nurtured all of them with great passion. His connections with government bodies and stakeholders alike made him an asset to the organisation.”

Ajay Prakash, former President of TAFI (Travel Agents Federation of India), remembers his friend Sen as a large-hearted man. “Arup and I were friends for 15 years, and he had built a beautiful home in Goa for his post retirement stay. I had plans to visit him in Goa on my next visit. We shared the common love for single malts and retro music, and he opened his heart out to his friends with his kind hospitality. He was more of the behind the scenes guy, working with the government bodies and negotiating deals with agencies, and that made him an important asset of the Cox & Kings set-up working closely with the Kerkars.”

Sen completed his Under Graduate studies from the University of Pune, and was a Graduate from the University of Delhi.
