Family pays Tributes to Vimalathanga

END OF AN ERA WITH VIMALA ATHANGA MAMI

CHENNAI/ 20TH APRIL’18

DEAR PADMINI, DR ASHWIN & SHARADA,
     It’s with a heavy heart that I watched
     Mami’s grand-nephew Suresh Kumar
     complete her cremation 3 days ago.
     Dr Nanditha, Dr Chinni Krishna, Krishna
     Kumar, Subramanian & Manohar were
     there among others at hand, as moral
     support to Ramaa, Pattamma,Nagu,
     Bhawani & young Siva. An era ended
     that day.
     Today Pattamma called to inform about
      the ‘Shubha-Sweekaram’ to be held at
      Mami’s residence on Sun 29th April.We
      shall certainly attend & pay our respects
      to the departed soul.
     Ultimately we’re overwhelmed by what
     the Almighty has chosen for each of us.
     And we have to accept that verdict in a
    state of “surrender”.
    With her endearing kindness, charming
    transparency & embodiment of child-like
    love ,Mami won & ruled our hearts for
    decades; and shall remain a role model
    for our lives.Equally notable was the total
    dedication and love showered on her by
    you, Ramaa & Pattamma to look after her
    at The Grove over the years.
     We close with a prayer and hope that we
     all get strength and courage, to deal with
     the irreplaceable vacuum that Mami has
     left behind.May her ‘Atma’ merge into the
     ‘Paramaatma’.
          Yours in mourning,
                                           Kartik- Lakshmi
                            ( with Poornima- Sourav )

A Handful Of Senior Citizens Has Voted In Each General Election Since 1951

Vimala Krishnamurti rarely steps out of her house on Eldams Road in Chennai, but the 88-year-old has been doing her physiotherapy exercises twice a day so that she can make it to the polling booth on Thursday.  “I want to be fit enough to go there using my walking stick,” says Vimala, who has not missed casting her vote in any election since 1951. “I remember how excited I was about casting my vote for the very first time,” says Vimala. who first voted in Mumbai for Congress.

Vimala admits she is today confused (about which party to vote for). “I want a good administrator who will work for the people and the welfare of senior citizens and respect women”, says Vimala.
