We deeply grieve Maamaji (Uncle's) passing away, particularly as we wished to visit him in 2021. We have very good memories of our association as he was very lovable and therefore a favourite uncle, who will be dearly missed.
We join in prayer for his soul to rest in peace.🙏!

We are saddened to hear passing of our dear friend , and a Sindhi Community's pioneer , and founding member, Luchu. We had few decades of friendship with Luchu and dear Marlene, and have fond memories of them -for their love, affection and concern for the Community, his keen interest in community affairs for years gone by. Quite a few of us were to gather at his dwelling to learn Bridge every weekend and had social tea at his house .He was a avid Bridge player, and had won quite a few trophies. He was kind hearted, friendly, jovial and soft spoken person. We mill miss him for years to come. Our heartfelt condolences to dear Marlene , and his family members may his Soul rest in utmost peace. in God's abode.
