About Gangubai Jindatta Arwade

Gangubai was an exceptional woman. She was the mother of five children, all of them successful in their chosen fields. She was very kind and thoughtful and was loved by everyone who met her. She had excellent taste and her wardrobe of saris included several that were hand-embroidered. She had one made for me (her sister-in-law) and I cherish it. Gangubai was an incredible cook. When she visited us in the United States in 1970, she prepared a picnic lunch that was the best I have ever tasted! She did the same for us when we were traveling by train during a visit to India in 1997. She made the most delicious besan ladoos (chick-pea-flour sweets) in all of India.

We called Gangubai "Akka", which means "eldest sister". Her grandchildren, including our daughter, called her "Amu" which means "mother" in Kanada - the language of Carnataka (the state which abuts the southern border of Maharashtra, her home-state in India).
