Sarla Batra

Sarla Batra

May 22, 1920

April 15, 2011

In loving memory of Mrs. Sarla Batra (née Gulati), born May 22nd, 1920; beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, Friend, and Wife of the late Jagdish Chander Batra. Her soul peacefully departed this world on April 15th, 2011, surrounded by the love of her whole family during her final days, with the Grace of God. Those familiar with the accomplishments of her life of 90 years recognize her legacy of forthright opinion combined with independence, strength, acceptance and love. She served as an inspiration to many, advocating the ability to realize any objective despite the perceived boundaries of culture, gender or age. Indo-Canadians are forever indebted for her contributions to our culture and society in Montreal. Sarla is survived by her children Vinod Batra and Veena Jain, their spouses, her 6 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren whose lives will continue to benefit from her lessons of compassion, pragmatism and independent thought.

I wish to express my deepest sympathies to Sarla Batras family. Sarla was very dear to my parents George and Betty Emms, I remember how for many years Boxing day we all feasted on a big turkey dinner. When I think of my Aunty Sarla I remember her as an exceptional woman who left a positive impact on my life.

I knew her for a short time when Vinod and I attended high school together.
We lost touch over the years, but in 2009 I called to locate Vinod and she remembered me after 50 years absence. What a memory !
