Smt. Indira Sivasailam

A Tribute to Smt. Indira Sivasailam

By Smt. Kamala Kasturi

A calm, gracious and simple person, Indira was a very dear friend to me for nearly three decades. Elegant, cheerful and always smiling she radiated happiness wherever she went. Memories of the time we spent together are very dear to me. I especially cherish the discussions we had on Vedanta and the debates were not just academic but centred around how we could apply these philosophical learnings in our daily lives. I recall with nostalgia how Indira, Geetha and I immersed ourselves in the study of the Bhagavad Gita and Bhoja's Champu Ramayanam.
