Rest in Peace Mrs Shanti Varma

On 4th August at 11:30pm our beloved President Mrs Shanti Varma passed away peacefully in her sleep after a long battle with cancer. Our founder Jodie met Mrs Varma in 2012 at Welham Girls School after her first public speaking event in Doon. Mrs Varma was as passionate about seeing a clean India as we are and when we registered Waste Warriors, she agreed whole-heartedly to be our President. When the term ended she stayed on, with a unanimous vote that she was the best one to lead and guide us. Her commitment to the organisations she believed in was unwavering and she remained our president until the very end.

She always had time to listen, to advise and was never judgemental, consistently gentle and understanding. She was a woman of great courage and someone that we will always deeply love and admire. She will be sorely missed. Mrs Varma may not be here with us in the physical sense, but she will always be with us in spirit, in our hearts and forever by our sides.
