We feel sorry to report the sad demise of Smt.Leelavathi, wife of Prof. M.Sivaramkrishna in the morning of 19th December, 2010 at their residence ‘Sivaleela’ in Hyderabad. She was 68 and her passing away was shockingly sudden, particularly for Prof. Sivaramkrishna at his age of 74. She hails from a family with good spiritual background, being the eldest daughter of Sri Akkipeddi Hanumantha Rao (91), a ‘Sri Vidyopasaka’. She received ‘Mantropadesam’ from her father. She was a scholarly lady in her own right and we understand that there are quite a number of books, based on Epics and Puranas, written by her and waiting to be published. They have two sons and a daughter, who are all well qualified and settled well in life.

It is hoped that Prof.Sivaramkrishna would realize, with his wisdom and spiritual background, that it is all Shiva Leela. We wish and pray that Prof. Sivaramkrishna is bestowed with spiritual solace by the Divine grace of his guru Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, his mentor Sri SRI RAM, and the Mother of all Matrusri Anauya Devi.

The Editorial team of Mother of All on their behalf and on behalf of its readers, convey their heartfelt condolences to the members of the bereaved family and pray Amma to bestow them with enough mental strength to face this calamity.

It is with deep regret and sorrow that we record the demise of Sri Brahmandam Lokanadham in the evening of 25th December, 2010 in Hyderabad. He was 88 and has two sons and three daughters. Sri Lokanadham was the younger brother of Late Sri Brahmandam Nageswara Rao (Nanna garu). Taking up teaching as his career, Sri Lokanadham worked as a teacher, first in some of the High schools including the Nehru Board High School at Appikatla near Bapatla under Guntur District Board and later shifted to Hyderabad, working in different schools. Having lost his wife when their children were still too young, he had to struggle very hard to bring them up and discharge his responsibilities as a father. He was a man with firm convictions and was strongly influenced by the Leftist ideology during his youthful years and subsequent years. As such he kept away from participating in the functions held to worship his sister-in-law (Amma) as Goddess-incarnate., though he was witness to many remarkable events associated with Amma during the early part of his life. But it appears that he started recognizing the extraordinary nature of Amma, recalling his early days as well as during the later part of his life, he attended many of the major functions to celebrate Amma’s Birthday or Kalyanam (Wedding day) during the last decade.

Being only a few months older than Amma, they used to play together while in Mannava. Though Amma was younger in age, she took care of him and his younger siblings when their father passed away, drawing them close to her and consoling them. Theirs being a close-knit family, his life along with his brother’s (Nannagaru) was closely linked to Amma’s during his early years of life in Mannava, Returu and Bapatla.

Sri Lokanadham was a man of extraordinary memory with a deep sense of understanding of world affairs and a teacher par excellence. But ironically, during the past couple of years he was ailing from Dementia, an old-age brain disorder. Ultimately the end came and he breathed his last on the 25th evening.

Members of the Editorial Board of Mother of All on their behalf and on behalf of its readers convey their heartfelt condolences to the members of the bereaved family and pray to Amma, to bless them to face this calamity with courage and fortitude.
