She was Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, Great Aunt, friend, teacher and counsellor to many.

Amritben Lakhamshi Ranmal Shah was a groundbreaker, an independent woman with strong views, who broke the mould by remarrying following widowhood, who gave her time to charitable vocations, taught English, learnt to drive, played the harmonium and the sitar and travelled the world in an era when such opportunities were truly limited.

Those who were fortunate to meet her were truly blessed and will forever cherish her memory.

God bless her soul, she is free at last.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.
