Raichandbhai arrived in Kenya at a very young age but was a very intelligent and astute person with a keen business sense and was a pivotal figure in Shah Punja Parbat & Co.  Concurrently he also spent time setting up and carrying out duties at Nairobi Mumuksh Mandal.  Together with Radiatben he was a frequent visitor to Songadh and spent time with Mumuksh Jain scholars. He lived a simple and healthy lifestyle. He had an exceptional memory with the ability to recall information without written notes. He leaves a lot of memories.

May His Soul find Peace

Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti
