A remarkable lady passed away on Sunday night. Viji’s life’s work was to improve the lives of some of the poorest women and girls in India and she was an exceptionally inspirational person to everyone whose life she touched. Despite seeing some of the worst of humanity she always remained enthusiastic with a wicked sense of humour. Last year she was awarded the ‘Women of the Year’ by The Week magazine in India and gained national recognition for her work. Her passing leaves a huge hole for everyone who knew her.
