Maya - an Illusion 

The dream catcher, reptile trainer,
Cake baker, nature lover,
A living encyclopedia of the animal kingdom;
An artist, a dancer and a Carnatic musician.

The bookworm, Potter fan, 
Creator of fantasy lands..
Swarmed with flowers, butterflies
And dragons of all shapes & size  

Loved candy, jello, ice cream
Waddled in any pond or stream  
Water baby - a mermaid,
Brave, kind and fearless.

The perfect daughter
and doting sister, 
A loving pal
The most amazing gal!

Her sparkling eyes
- a soul that shines,
A magical spirit
Who knew no limits.


Our sweetest Maya, who blessed us with her dazzle for 8 years, has departed to explore her journey beyond this mundane world on July 31, 2022.


As she skips around, defining her own path, in the enchanted garden of butterflies, purple flowers and gold dust --- our heart aches in her absence. Maya will forever remain etched in our memories.

We wish you stayed longer to teach us a little more about kindness, love and magic, Maya. We miss you and love you more than we could ever tell you.

Please share a tribute or story of Maya below. Her family would love to know untold stories and memories.

"There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains."

Despite never meeting you Maya, it is clear how special you were just by the way your father spoke about it. Always so private, Karthik would lighten up and proudly tell stories about his dear Maya! You have touched the life of many and will forever be remembered. May you rest in peace!

Sending love and prayers to the family.

Maya, we are so saddened for your loss but your memories will always remain with us. When Leela was first born, you were so fascinated by her and Neil and I will never forget you helping us with her bath and being so sweet with her. You even gave her your beloved giraffe which we have many pics of her with the giraffe as a tribute to you. At that moment, Neil and I told each other that we hoped Leela grew up to be as kind and sweet natured as you. I'm so glad we got to see you a few weeks back and even though our visit was short, we will always treasure those moments with you. We wish we had more time with you but will find ways to always keep your spirit in our hearts. Love, Roshni, Neil, Meera and Leela

Somewhere that smile, same as her Mom’s is shining bright! I remember first meeting Maya, sweet and smart, a ball of positive energy wanting to be part of everything going on around her. I’m so happy my daughters and I had the chance to meet and interact with Maya, but not enough time, we’ll miss you.

Maya - I never got to know you, but I did know how happy and proud your Mom was of you, as well as how much you cared for animals in need of help. That tells me everything about your bright and generous soul. Find peace and joy wherever you go in this wide universe.

Dearest Maya and family, you are always in my heart. Maya, I loved getting to know you and being your coach. I feel so lucky to have met you and experienced your joy, intelligence, and free spirit. You are one special soul and are missed by so many. With much love always, Coach Lauren

To the little one

To the little girl I never knew
Who brightened her home as she grew,
For no fault or reason
You were taken so soon.

Cannot imagine the grief of your family
Whose world now revolves around your memories,
I can only pray
Cannot console them in anyway.

To the little girl I never knew
You will always be loved
You will always be remembered ,
In the hearts of your parents and your grandparents
Now that u have suddenly disappeared.

Be happy my child
As God has taken you in his arms,
And for those left behind
Your love always in their hearts be twined.

Farewell Maya!

Dearest Maya,

You left an indelible mark on us. I remember meeting you for the first time when you were a little over two. You were the sweetest, smartest, most curious child we had met. Over the years, we longed to hear more about you from your doting uncle. We were in awe of all that you taught us through your videos. You are one of a kind, and we will keep you in our hearts forever.

For you our lovely Maya!

Imagine if tears formed a stairway from here,
And memories built a lane to you dear.
We would dash up quick to heaven,
And grab you back again!

No time to act or feel the words that were said,
No time for us to say our goodbye ahead.
You had left us before we knew what to do,
And now we are looking for a memory of you!

Our heart breaks and cries in sadness now,
The tears flow we know not how.
What it means to lose you we feel,
Sanch & Karthik will know the real deal.

Be assured you will never be forgotten,
You live in our hearts forever till our last words spoken,
Be the sunshine you were born to be,
The kind that has us in constant glee!

While you are in a different place,
In our hearts will always be your face.
The angel picked you with love and care,
While we are left here and that’s unfair!

Hold on little one, you will love this magic place,
Where you are surrounded in abundance and grace!
Love, laugh, cherish and cheer,
Spread your charm far and near.

Every life you have changed with a part of you,
Will forever be grateful and true.
Live on through these four lives that you made,
Your aura can now never fade!

May you find comfort in all the special memories you made with her. We miss Maya, and she will always be in our memories!!

When the Lord snatches away such a young and beautiful soul it is heartbreaking for all who knew and loved her. We never met you Maya but we pray that God keeps you safe in His arms and gives solace to all who had the privilege of knowing you

We haven't met you. But your grandfather always remembered you and your quotes. God should give them strength to overcome the grief. Om shanti

We’re so very sorry for your loss. Maya has been such a bundle of joy and courage. Her curiosity towards insects, energy playing all day with her friends, lovely stroll over the evening and kindness in her eyes will forever remain etched in our memories. Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts!

Maya, you were a little girl with a lot of amazing qualities: kind, loving, smart, friendly. I’m lucky to have met you and spent evenings wandering around the park; always smiling and filled with energy. I admired your love for insects and animals, may you always carry that compassion wherever you go.

You were a wonderful child and you’ll always be in my memory as a sweet, loving and caring little Maya.

What a lovely time we had when you visited us in the UK, Maya! Your cousins enjoyed playing with you, listening to your favourite songs, playing in the park, going on a punt... The joy on your face during our video calls, your love for Indian classical music, the artist in you, you couldn't wait for Baby Aam to be here..

Calappa, Radhika, Ruhaan and Darsh will love you forever.

No amount of words can express the pain that you are going through, extending our deepest sympathy during this tragic time. ☹☹☹

Maya was a sweetest child with a big heart and full of energy, miss seeing her on zoom calls whenever she popped-in. She will be missed forever. God bless the little princess and may her soul rest in peace. Hugs and kisses to Maya ☹

Sending you love and prayers, and hope you and your family are able to find strength during this dark time.

To the little girl  I never knew
Who brightened her home as she grew, 
For no fault or reason
You were taken so soon. 

Cannot imagine the grief of your family
Whose world now revolves around your memories, 
I can only pray
Cannot console them in anyway. 

To the little girl I never knew
You will always be loved
You will always be remembered , 
In the hearts of your parents and your grandparents
Now that u have suddenly disappeared. 

Be happy my child
As God has taken you in his arms, 
And for those left behind
Your love  always in their hearts be twined.
