Pranjivanbhai loved people and travel, making friends of all ages with an infectious sense of humour. While visiting the historical sites in the
The teachings of Mahatma Gandhi were central to his personal philosophy. Pranjivanbhai taught his children that if you change yourself, you change the world. If you change how you think, then you will change how you feel and what actions you take and so the world around you will change. Pranjivanbhai was generous in helping those in need around him, for example arranging as well as paying for weddings in his home town, doing so in a manner that was humble and giving respect to all involved, regardless of their circumstances.
In the latter part of his life, Pranjivanbhai unfortunately fell ill with dementia through Alzheimer's. This debilitating illness has become more common in our community. His eldest son, Pankaj with his wife, Rekha led the family in caring for him. They surrounded him with love and kindness, providing support as he coped with the loss of functions caused by this illness.
Pranjivanbhai is survived by his wife, Ramaben, and their six children and ten lovely grandchildren. He was a generous, thoughtful and kind human being who had a wealth of love for others, especially his family. His life and memory are an inspiration and he will remain in their hearts forever.
Shawl presentation by Pattni Brotherhood, Nairobi Trustees
As per Hindu tradition, after the passing of the father, the eldest son assumes headship of the family. A shawl was presented by the Trustees of Pattni Brotherhood at the sormu dham, to the eldest son Pankaj to signify the transition of responsibility for the protection and welfare of the family from the father to the surviving oldest son.
The Mavji family would like to express our thanks to all the relatives, friends and members of the community for their support, sympathy and condolences by personal visit, telephone, message and paying their respects at the funeral.
