    Mrs I Jayakaran

    Mrs. Jaya Jayakaran remains one among the most noblest of the ladies whom I had the good fortune to meet in my young days. The most stressed appointment in Corps History Will remain that of the ADSO’s who served in Army HQ Signal Regiment during 1960-63. Jaya remained a stress reliever. She made it a point to lighten our burden with her sweet smile, innocent jokes and wholesome tasty food. She made special cakes and sweets for us during Xmas and festive occasions. She helped us and guided us in Signals Mela. The burden of “non working Tape Relay” and the “never Getting Through HF” were barred from entering her house in Parliament Street.

    Later I was lucky to meet her at MCTE Mhow in 1975. A very short stay, but left a very deep sense of attachment to her for she carried her self with the same unassuming, warm and generous outlook to life.

    Her departure will remain a very personal loss to all those who came across her. What cannot be cured has to be endured. May GOD give strength to Col Jayakaran and near and dear ones to bear the irreparable loss .

    I always felt that Jaya believed strongly “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
