My mother #InduJain believed that death is not something to be mourned but a soul changing clothes to start a new journey of exploration. She taught me to live on my own terms & in a state of constant bliss. As she attains Nirvana, I celebrate a truly remarkable spirit.— Vineet Jain (@vineetjaintimes) May 13, 2021
She was awarded the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian honour in the country, in 2016.
