  1. Dearest Shanthy Aunty, Sangitha and Sahithyan,
    We are so deeply sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and touching service. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.
    Rajendran Uncle has played an integral part in so many of our dance journeys and it is hard to imagine him not being in the garden watering the plants and having a chat with us on the way into class. I will always be grateful for the role he has had making Bharatanatyam even possible for myself, and now, Katara.
    Sending you strength and love,
    Niluckshie (and Gopi, Katara and Kian Haran)

  2. It was a beautiful service.I know Mr Rajendran from my home town KKS.He was a studious and a well respected student, at Nadeswara College. When we moved to Australia in 1986, we first met him at our mama’s ( Dr Shan,Doncaster) place, later in many social gatherings.He was always cheerful and happy.
    So sorry to hear his untimely passing away.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.

  3. I knew Rajendran from1967, Science Faculty, Peradeniya.. It was after forty three years that we met again after Rajendran’s relentless efforts to track me down by following my daughter’s details ( with same surname).
    Rajendran was known well by his colleagues for connecting people together who had lost touch. He was one of those people whom I consider to be lucky to have known. He was full of good humour and always had a great smile on his face.
    My deepest sympathies to Shanthy, Sahitian and Shangeetha.

  4. Please accept our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences. True gentleman. We will all miss him.
