    • EULOGY delivered by Mahesh, Dinesh & Kamlesh Upadhyaya on behalf of all siblings
      At the tender age of 13, Baa joined the Upadhyaya family, by marriage to our father, Mansukhbhai.
      Very soon after marriage, she became Baa to our uncle and 3 aunts. A new life was starting for the family in Aden, Yemen and Baa got busy taking care of our father, our grand father and my grand uncles. Baa worked tirelessly, to care for this large family, raise our uncle & aunts and in due course, us, six siblings.

      In 1962, Baa took the bold step to come to the UK, with my siblings, to join me, in a virtually unknown town in Yorkshire, called Keighley.

      Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge. So it was befitting our Saraswati Baa that she took up the mantle of educating us, and caring for us, siblings. And it was not just us.
      If we met someone from the old country, in the street, they got invited to the house for a meal. Such acquaintances soon became friends and friends became Baa's sons & daughters and we siblings acquired another brother or sister. And the extended family grew.

      our parents later moved to London, again for the education of the siblings. When our father started work with the Human Service Trust, I am sure it was Baa?s unflinching and dedicated support which was partly responsible for its success here in UK. Even its founder, swami Krishnanad Sarswati called our Baa, Baa.
      Life soon became busy for Baa, with arrival of grandchildren and then great grandchildren.
      and for many of them, our loving Baa was known as Hari Aum Baa

      We have lost the matriarch of our family and Baa will be sorely missed, by us all.

      Baa, from your very very extended family

      Hari Aum
