grazie Vin...un abbraccio a tutta la tua famiglia che ricordo con molto affetto. I giorni trascorsi a Nottingham sono scolpiti nella memoria, dal tuo abbraccio alla stazione quando ci venisti a prendere (venni con una mia amica che fu anche lei vostra ospite) all incontro con i tuoi fratelli, alla festa, gli amici, lo sguardo indagatore di tua madre , i cibi speziati, i vestiti, le sete fruscianti, i sorrisi, gli occhi verdi, la casa di londra di tuo zio (era tuo zio vero?, ma molto giovane) il suo abbraccio quando ci siamo salutati, come di un fratello che si é ritrovato, la sua compagna inglese, il gioco che non riuscivo a fare, i boschi verdi...e molto altro..

Thinking of you all in your sadness.I have fond memories of Sukhdev, a lovely man. He will be greatly missed I’m sure.
Poppy & family from Hamilton, New Zealand
Uncle-ji, you were like out 2nd Dad, but the cool one who didn’t tell me off. I have lots of fond memories from when you picked us up at the airport in the blue transit van, to having chips at the factory and just hanging around at Beech Ave. You always had a smile on your face, your eyes twinkling, always so welcoming. Even when Dad was upset with me, you were always so welcoming to me and Tim. I was so looking forward to you visiting New Zealand one day but now I guess you can enjoy all the beautiful places in the world all at once. Uncle-ji - you will always be remembered for your kind heart and big smile. Enjoy a drink with Dad.

Buta Singh Johal from Nottingham, U.K
Having known Sukhdev Bhaji as a close family friend since childhood , I can say that he was someone that was a family oriented person who worked hard and made sure that he enjoyed his life. Our mothers were like sisters and this relationship grew amongst all the kids. I will always remember the support that Sukhdev Bhaji gave at the time of need when we lost our parents. May Vaheguru give strength to all the Gangotra family to get them through this difficult time and to reflect on the many happy years you spent together as a family.

So sorry to hear Sukhdev has moved on. I have fond memories of encounters in Nottingham, Southall. The Punjab, and at Jaswant’s wedding, his genuine smile and loving compassion for all beings was always clear to see x

Madeleine Bedward from Grantham,U.K
Sukhdev, aka Dennis as I always knew you as, I think I was just a little girl when I first met you and your wonderful family, I remember it so vividly visiting your home and trying wonderful food I had never tried, being fussed over in the kitchen and my arms filled with bangles from surrinder and all the family , I have never forgotten that day, the smiles, the laughter, the family, a family full of love , a family I wished I belonged to , something I have never experienced, many memories visiting the factory, snienton market and your home, whenever my dad said he was going to see you I always wanted to come along, just for a glimpse of real family , it seems like yesterday but the reality is it was 50 yrs ago, but those find memories of your beautiful family have never left me, my heart goes out to surrinder and the boys and jas, you were a truly wonderful person who will be sorely missed by so many, my love to the whole family from little Madeleine xxxxx
Elena Gonfiantini from Pistoia,Italy
I have had the pleasure to meet him in person both in Nottingham and in Italy, and I remember his smile and kindness and his sense of humour, a true gentlemen. He loved his family and always kept in touch with them also when travelling abroad. My sincere condolences to all the family.

Manju from Nottingham, U.K
Rip. Can't believe, you gone . Going to miss you . Big hugs to all Gangotra family .
Farid Khan from London, U.K
It is with sadness that I recall our sole encounter years ago. His affable nature, kindness, and delightful humour deeply touched me. He was a true gentleman in every sense; his open-hearted sincerity, generosity of spirit and thoughtfulness is a fond and unforgettable memory. I hold dear that sweltering Delhi afternoon, imbued with laughter, wit, and joyfulness. His zest for life was unmistakable, as was the gentle soul he so elegantly personified. RIP, Mr Gangotra.
Paul Bunyan from Carlisle, U.K
Sincere condolences to the Gangotra family. Jaswant has always spoken so fondly to us about his older brother who I know he looked up to and admired so much.
Arun Fakey from Nottingham, U.K
Very sad to hear this news of his sudden demise. A very distinguished gentleman indeed like many from his generation. He used to buy alot of his clothing manufacturing accessories like buttons, zips, threads etc. from our business, Midland Trimmings, on Egypt Road in New Basford which is when I got to know him. He had many dealings with my father, Vijay Fakey, from the 70's. I last met Sukhdev when he was invited as a guest to our Nottingham West Lions Club meeting about 4 years back when I greeted him and he was happy to meet me after manty years. May Waheguruji give him peace in his eternal heavenly abode.
Elisabetta Mucci from Gavinana, PT, Italy
The thing I remember best about him was his bright smile and a kindness in his gaze that is more unique than rare. I have known more of him through his sons, and I can say that who leaves a good memory of himself never completely passes. A huge hug to the whole family, sincere condolences.
Balwant Nijran from Nottingham, U.K
Very very sad to hear that Sukhdev is no longer with us, I still could not believe that he has gone. I describe Sukhdev as a very positive and caring person. He used to visit everybody and goes everywhere whether it’s a party, wedding or a funeral. I remember going to Beech Avenue, he always offer you something to eat or drink, I used to say to him that he makes nice coffee and he used to make me one. He used to call me and say “what are doing there on your own, come round”. Sukhdev will be remembered by all his well wishers 🙏🙏🙏 RIP Sukhdev
