    I met Sheela (Amma) since 2016, the 15 min conversation felt like I knew her for so long. She was very passionate about lot of thing, mainly classical singing, classical dance and her culture, she had a great personality, very loving, caring and a great motivator. She was always there with a smile, I enjoyed her tasty food & talking to her was always joy and laughter. my sincere condolences to your family. We still can’t imagine she is no more with us. May her soul rest in peace, sending the strength and courage to your family members who will need to face the days ahead without her. Om Shanthi. ??
