I was very moved to hear of Mrs. Kanta Khipple's passing. I knew she was a great lady, even though I was largely unaware of the full scope of her many accomplishments. Mrs. Khipples daughter, Ranjana, and I shared an apartment at university. I met her father when he stayed with us for a few days. Even in that little bit of time I knew this was a very special man, so peaceful, ascetic and noble in his way of being. What a pair they must have been! I extend my deep condolences to Ranjana and Kjel and their families. In so many beautful and 'productive' ways, you are chips off the old block and such a credit to your parents. I know how well you cared for your mom in her old age, Ranjana, something I am sure gave her succour and peace of mind as she aged. God bless you all in this season of parting..... and God rest Mrs. Kanta Khipple's soul as she rejoins her husband after yet another long separation since his death to hold hands again in heaven.

It is really only as an adult that I can fully appreciate what a true leader my grandmother was and the magnitude of her impact. Looking back on her lifetime of accomplishments, I can only hope to hold a candle to this incredible legacy. Nanny, I aspire to emulate and instill in my own children your astounding selflessness, your commitment to higher education, your devotion to philanthropic pursuits, and of course, your ability to pull off a bold lip colour like no other. You are my ultimate role model. I’ll miss you so much.

I am deeply saddened by the demise of our dear Kanta ji. She was instrumental in bringing me to the folds of Apna Ghar, first as a board member, than a volunteer and down the line as a shelter director. I have very fond memories of her kindness and generosity. She had a strong will to help every victim of gender violence. Her life is an inspiration for all she ever touched by her soft spokenness. May her soul rest in peace.

My condolences to the family, my mother and I have been knowing Kanta for over 15 years, we were her housekeepers, and cared for her. It was a pleasure knowing a person like Kanta. The best memory I have of her is seeing her and her husband holding hands, running their errands they both had a love for each other like no other. ❤️ may god give the family strength during this difficult time.

I remember Kanata so fondly. She was such a warm and caring woman, mother, and wife, I am glad her children, and grandchildren had her with them for so many years.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

What a life to be celebrated! I was so lucky that my parents brought Kanta into my life as a child. What a gift it was to get to know her — and all the other Khipples! Kanta was a formative influence for me. She gave me a perspective on the world that vastly expanded the understanding of a suburban teenager. Her memory is truly a blessing!
