My mother, Pooja Tripathi, who for some time after she was born was known by the stand-in name ‘Lynn’, passed away on the night of the tenth of September, 2017.

It was a life of tribulations, all gracefully endured. She died of what the doctors at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences called a heart rupture.

Her death came at a time when, after a period of undeserved suffering, she and I had taken the first steps at rebuilding our life after weathering a devastating storm. We were supposed to have many happy days ahead of us, because she was an active woman who would easily have lived at least a couple more decades.

I hope to use this site to document as much of her life as I can.
