Deepest condolences for a good woman and a wonderful teacher. She was virtue defined and I can still see her in that class room, which had a view of the Tara Devi Hill, teaching us the first lessons in arithmetic – how to add, subtract, multiply and divide in that order, over those lovely days in the Spring of 1954.
Basic life’s lessons came from people like her. We imbibed them like sponges and what haven’t they done to make our lives fruitful and productive ?!! She also taught us Divinity for a brief while but her lessons had little to do with the Bible. She devoted her time to inculcating the basic value systems for a good life to 7 year olds eager to learn life’s first lessons.
The Varughese couple will always occupy an enduring presence in the lives of so many of us. They were exceptional people and made a deep impression on us. To this day they are remembered as teachers who were committed and cared deeply for the students in their care. They tailored their influence based on the needs of the individual which is why they were so impactful.
The people who really make a difference are not what they say to you but how they make you feel. She and her husband made us feel wanted and feel really good. Thank you.
We convey our respects and whisper in her ears our everlasting love.
Our deepest sympathies to Anna, Sara, their respective families and to you.
