Biography

When talking about Nasib Kaur Basran, the first thing which comes to mind is that she was one of the few luckiest people to see her 4 generations.

Over all she had 9 Kids(3 Boys and 6 girls), although two boys dies at an early age. She was blessed with 20 Grandchildren and 26 Great grandchildren so far.
Apart from this, she had 3 sisters and two brothers, and the count goes on and on

Full of life and person with a big heart, who had un-believable amount of love that she could share with not only her family but everyone she knows.

God fearing person, who was always happy to see other people's success and pray for the well being of everyone she knows.

Hardworking and courageous person, even though her husband Late Lachhman Singh Basran left in 2001, she never let anyone feel that a huge part of her life is missing or let anyone see a big void which was left. On the other hand she made sure that no one missed his absence during all the happy rituals her family were blessed, let it be a new born or an sacred marriage.

Her love for food was known to everyone, she migrated to Canada in 1990's but her love to her roots was obvious. She had all the access to modern food but she always went at length to fulfill the craving of her native food such as SAGG. Even during her last days you give her a sugarcane and she will consume it with such an ease that it can shame a 20 year old boy.

She was a giver, who just know how to give, be it money, affection, food, clothes, anything she could possibly could.

The energy she had was surprisingly amazing, at the age of 90, she still like to know about the well being of all the individuals, even though the over all count would have roofed up to more than 200 persons. She use to mix names but who can blame her when you have such a big family.

On paper she was illiterate, who could not read or write, but the way she was organized at her age was commendable, she arranged her medicines, clothes and everything according to her comfort, which I hope everyone can learn from her. She was smart, especially during her last few years when she was not much mobile, she made sure that she have all the necessary food/money/clothes/diapers/wipes/toilet roll in her little buggy

She was a fighter, who never gave up when 2 of her little boys died, she tried everything in her control to save them, traveled miles on bare foot to see a decent doctor. Even though all her effort went in vain she never gave up hope, or show dissent towards god. She taught us faith and hope. She taught us that life goes on, and we should continue embarking our journey with pride and hope, what is life without hope?


It is easy to love your grandchildren and great grand children but to receive the same affection back requires a big heart and great soul.

There are millions of anecdotes related to her which we can share, no space is good enough for that.

All we can say is that we learnt from her how to keep our head high even when time is challenging us, and believe in handwork. Good luck or bad luck is just the result of the effort you made in the past
