My sister Raka has added: "The gramophone which she got from her father for standing first in high school is with me, along with some records of that era".
- I remember my mother telling me, that she was disposed kindly towards poor girl students. She was quite upset when the girl students from influential families would come dressed in expensive, fashionable clothes, but the girls from poor families would not be able to keep up in “making a fashion statement”. My grandmother introduced a college dress to remove this anomaly. Off the record, she would even pay for the school dresses of some poor meritorious girls from her own pocket, notwithstanding the fact that she herself was drawing a meagre salary.
Some British & Indian Civil Servants met my grandmother at a social function which she was attending and learning about her educational qualifications from the host, invited her to join the Institution and to devote herself towards girl's education, as the present Principal Miss Engles had expressed a desire to leave the Institution.
