How we remember them: A garden of memories in Mumbai (Al Jazeera)

Al Jazeera: How we remember them: A garden of memories in Mumbai . “For years, Dr Prabha Kangle had the same morning routine. After breakfast, she would fill a small vessel with water and slowly cross the length and breadth of her apartment in central Mumbai, making her way from one balcony to the other, watering plants in the two gardens she had lovingly cultivated. She went back and forth several times, refilling the vessel. Any help offered by family members was firmly rejected. The activity also doubled as a morning walk for the 92-year-old. Since she died a year ago, her niece Vaibhavi Bhagwat has taken over the responsibility of caring for her gardens.”
