In memory of Latika
It was with unspeakable grief in our hearts that we learnt on October 11, 2007, of the deeply sad news that our wonderful friend – Latika – was no more...
After a surgery in Chennai's Ramachandra Hospital about 3 days earlier, she had not been able to make it to life's shores....
Latika – or Mrs Latika Das – the erstwhile Principal of D.B.M.S. English School, wife of the retired Tata Steel senior executive T.P.S.N. Das, a very special friend, mother, sister, aunt, is remembered by so many; four of us, attempt to pay a small tribute to her memory.
