Remembering Manju Barkataki

It is with our deepest sympathies that we regret to inform you that our dear Manju Mami (Mrs.Manju Barkataki), wife of Dr. Nripen Barkataki, left us on Tuesday evening, 15th October 2013. She passed away peacefully at her residence.

This has been a great loss, not just to our family, but to the entire community. Though married to our family, to my mum's brother, she was more than a family member and loved us selflessly.

Bright, creative and always full of energy Manju Mami was a Gold Medallist in Anthropology from Cotton College Guwahati. Her enthusiasm bound our family together.

The family is in shock and devastated by her sudden untimely death.

The funeral service will be held in Durham, England on the 25th of October, 2013. Please find details in the attachment included in this email

Dear Linu, We were so deeply shocked to learn about Manju’s sudden and untimely departure for her Heavenly Abode, we still can’t believe it. Only the other we met you together in the Assam day. This is an unbearable to loss to you and your family. We lost a dear friend. It is also great loss for the Assamese Community in the UK. You are in our prayers and may God give you, Ian and Ryan strength to come to terms with this grief. May her soul be in eternal peace! With all our compassion and sympathy, Rita and Naren Saikia
