TRIBUTE TO RITA SHAHANI BY REV. DADA J.P. VASWANI –
"Rita Shahani was the pride of our Beloved Sindhi Community. I always thought of her as a jewel in our midst. She was so bright and brilliant. Her life was a mine of many virtues.....She was a picture of culture and compassion. Fragrant be her memory! Our dear ones do not die. They but "go before" us. We, too, shall one day follow them. We shall meet them again -- somewhere, somewhen. For life is endless, and time is but a shadow of Eternity."
- J.P. Vaswani
