It is to inform with great heart and grief that Honorable Dr. Ronki Ram’s mother Smt. Shanti Devi passed away peacefully amidst her children, grand and great- grandchildren in her village Sahri, Tehsil & District Hoshiarpur on November 12, 2016. She was born and brought up at Lyallpur (now in Pakistan). She migrated to her native village Kalewal Bhagatan near Mahilpur during the partition in 1947 and married in the same year with Sh. Harmesh Lal of village Sahri (Hoshiarpur).
Smt. Shanti Devi was very religious lady, herself a matriculate, she was the main motivating force behind Dr. Sahib Professor Ronki Ram’s higher education and his consistent academic contribution towards the various issues of Dalit writings over the last two and half decades.
www.ambedkartimes.com pays its deep condolences to the bereaved family and prays for the peace of the departed soul.
