Bal Kaka’s death anniversary

We, the descendants of Shriram Jatar, have a WhatsApp group in which we often share memories. And today Ranjit, the son of Brig. R.V. Jatar, and the grandson of Abasaheb and the nephew of Bal Kaka, started the conversation by telling us of his memories of his uncle, and posted two of his photos.

Here are Ranjit’s sentiments:
