With profound sadness, I write to you today (3rd November 2011) the demise of my mother in law Mrs Vijayalekshmy Menon, at HCG Hospital, Bangalore at 8:50 pm. A Kerala state Badminton player and as a person with definite objectives in life and will power to fight, she really fought her final battle with cancer, aggressively than anyone and left me and my family with lots of memories for the future without her.
She worked as a teacher of mathematics at St George School Delhi, St Thomas School Bangalore and later as Librarian at Our Own English High School Abu Dhabi.
Mrs Vijayalekshmy Menon is survived by her only daughter Rajashree, grandson Suraj and brothers Joy, Santhan, Sethu and Venu.
Her husand Late MRK Menon and son Late Rajeev Menon passed away some years ago.
Cremation will be conducted as per Hindu rites at Kalpally electric crematorium, Bangalore on 4th November 2011 at 11:00 am.
Being with her during the entire period of her final week in this earth and especially the last 3 days, I really felt the campaigners for Breast Cancer should change it's iconic color from Pink to Red Color and also doubt whether these campaigns on Breast Cancer Care and Awareness really reaching to the audience and purpose intended.
