Dear Papa, as I read through all the lovely memories that our family has shared, I am remembering and missing you very much!

I am so glad that I got to spend more time with you over the past few years. Now, you are with mom and my veer and can tell them all about your daughters that you are so proud of. I know you all are watching over us.

Miss you all very much!

Lots of love,
Your baby daughter

Papa Ji I am so glad we get to spend some time together for the last 6 years . We had good times having drink together. I do remember having few arguments as well. It does not matter but we had fun and happy times together regardless of where(visiting Mom in nursing home and few trips to Lake Tahoe or even at home). I can never forget our trip to Agra when I was very young and you told the story to everyone how I jumped into the train through a window. Also, a very difficult time when we brought Mom back to America. I hope I made you a proud father. Dad Rest In Peace I will see you again one day.

Masarhji, you were such a father figure to me. We had many laughs, shared good memories and discussed some painful times. One of my favorites were when I used to come and drop off the girls when they were babies, you opened the door and said "there is our fulan di tokri". It made me feel such love. We could have discussed just about anything and felt better after. I am so sorry for your pain the last year from cancer. I will truly miss you forever. Like your daughter, with gratitude and respect, Indra Mahal

You could always count on Papaji to make you laugh. Weather that was at your expense or not, was another story.

He was always a jolly, very social and outgoing man. We will remember him for those qualities and all the experiences that we shared with him.

If I were to be able to tell him one thing now, I would say; "Enjoy your time with Mummy and Mamaji now, we miss you all."

Papaji was one of the most active individuals I have seen in my lifetime. Whenever he used to care for me over the summer, a common proposition would be to go for a walk, which remain as some of my fondest memories of him. He was almost moving, and always conversing with people around him, seemingly making new friends everyday.

I will never forget those qualities, and I thank him for showing me them throughout the years. R.I.P Papaji.

I remember that whenever Papaji would see me, he would always tell everyone "Oh here comes my Smiley Face" (roughly translated). To which I would smile, proving him right. He always knew that saying that would make me smile and he enjoyed the game.

We will all miss you Papaji. Rest in peace.

Papaji(My Father-in-Law) as I addressed him since I saw and treated him like my Father was a very social person. He could impress and made any person his friend after spending little time with them. He lived a good long life and has now joined Mataji. I had the opportunity to spend lot of time with him during the last stage of his life. It became clearer than before that he was good at heart. His biggest contribution along with Mataji as a team was to raise three Girls who grew up to be strong and successful Women while fully grounded in our cultural values.

My dear Papaji

I still can’t believe you are not with us in person but I can still feel your presence around us, I can hear your voice on the phone and it will stay with me till end. You raised your daughters like sons and provided us with the best you could. You worked hard in your lifetime and we are proud to have had you as our father. I love you as your eldest daughter and will miss you.
