Gowri of Service Farm

In the afternoon of Monday 5 June, Aurovilian Gowri Raman of Service Farm (next to Promesse community) left her body away due to kidney failure at the young age of 48. Having been on dialysis for the last 4 years, a week ago her situation worsened and she was taken to JIPMER where she passed away.

Gowri was one of the bright and hardworking Aurovilians who will be missed at her various working places. She was born in Douceur (then still Udayan community) and had four sisters Lakshmi, Kala, Vishwa and Rajeswari. She followed her education at Transition and Last School after which she worked at Discipline Farm where she learned about farming. Later she became active part of the Farm Group and Foodlink, and ran the Service Farm for several years.

She was married to Raman (earlier of Land Board) and had two children, Dhiviyabharathi (30) and Dhiviyaprasad (28), and one grandson, Dhruvan.

Dearly thanking Gowri for having been with us in her quiet, unobtrusive way, our condolences go out to her husband, children and extended family.
