My most sincere condolences to the family of Geeta - her husband Ravi and son Harish. It is a tribute to her that when we say "family" it can also extend to all the children at Hope that she cared for, the staff that she worked with and all the volunteers and students that she welcomed and made feel part of the Hope team. I was lucky enough to work with Geeta for 5 years in Kolkata and she would always meet you with a smile and an interest in how you were getting on. Her laugh was infectious and her interest sincere. We revere people from the past who have accomplished great things but rarely do we realize the scope of these achievements while they are with us. As people reflect now, I am sure that Geeta's work and life with her "family" will receive the recognition that it deserves. She was an extra special wife, mother, colleague and friend and we are all going to miss her very much.
