We knew Ranjini when they lived in Chicago. My husband Raja learnt violin and vocal from her. Since it was a long drive from our place to hers, myself and our two daughters used to go with him. Ranjini was very efficient . First lessons, and then coffee and snacks for all. Always smiling, good advice for any problems. We became very good friends and she used to visit us whenever they came to Chicago. Look at that SMILE.

Ranjani is a great and supportive violin guru of my daughter, my friend, and an amazing human being all around. I will miss her golu visits, always being there supporting Sahi, helping her out for arangetram performances.

Hope to see you on the other side Ranjani. With hugs and lots of love, Usha

Ranjini you are a person I met you during your daughter Priya & Prithvis wedding to my nephew. You were making sure everything was accurate and done properly. One day you called on behalf of your friend who wanted to Move into Anand Vihar. It was a pleasure to speak with you. You will be remembered a person with good heart and talent you shared with so many students, will be felt the void in our lives.

I first met Ranjini, when she came knocking at my door to know if I needed help with my new born baby and she had just moved less than week from Chicago.

I was amazed at how compassionate she was, I fell in love with her. Our friendship has been strong for the last 38 plus years. She is one who is very loving, non judgmental and very practical.

She has raised two beautiful girls. Who were her world along with her husband, son in laws, and her sweet grandson, whom she loved and adored. Her love was infectious.

I have such wonderful memories of the Navarathri golu visits, the graduations, weddings and at camp shohola. I will always cherish them.

Ranjini was a person always willing to help and go the extra mile. Her love for music has inspired so many of her students.

I am unable to write everything I want, because of my extreme sadness.

I pray god bless her soul. I am sure she will keep guiding and blessing her family and friends and protecting them as always.

Ranjini this is not a goodbye, I am sure we will meet on the other side and continue to have fun. Love you very much my dear friend. You have been more like a sister to me. I will miss you very much.
