Manjri Anil Khandwala

On January 18th, 2021, at 9:15 am, Mrs. Manjri Anil Khandwala peacefully passed away in Shawnee, Kansas.  

Manjri was born in Surat, India, on November 3rd 1933, where she attended school and college. She worked as a teacher in a girls school for 7 years right after her graduation while supporting her family.  She married Anil Khandwala on December 20, 1959 and moved to Mumbai, India to settle down with her new family.

Manjri was a very easy-going person who was never seen without a smile on her face. She treated everyone with the same amount of respect. She loved to write, knit, embroider, read, and cook. She has published 2 books which have excerpts of stories from her real life, some mythology, and some fun-to-read short stories. She also loved to tutor in various languages. Her favorite languages were Sanskrit (in which she held her Masters) and Gujarati.  She will always be remembered for her cheerful personality. She loved to travel and not even age held her back.

She went back to teaching (something she always loved) after the birth of her second child and worked as a teacher again for 20+ years.   

She is survived by her 2 daughters, Ruchira Dalal and Prachi Shroff, son-in-law Raj Shroff, granddaughters, Medha and Pallavi Dalal, and grandsons, Mihir and Rohan Shroff.   She was preceded in death by her husband, Anil Khandwala, and son-in-law, Sanjay Dalal.

  1. Satish Kazi Says:

    My sister Manjari Khandwala- Manuben – was a Diamond of Chandravati and Yeshvantlal Kaji family of Surat. She was Academically bright , a good dancer in her young age and an excellent public relations person. Hence, she was very popular in the local community in Surat, her mother’s amuly and her husband’s family in Mumbai. She was very sharp as a child. Because of that, she saved her Sister Bharatiben and herself from a boat mishap, when she was hardly nine. From 1952-1959, she managed her mother’s home comprising of a unwell mother and two younger siblings like the mother of the house, single handed, along with her job as a school teacher. Her best achievement was in obtaining M.A. degree of Mumbai University, after a few years of marriage. She was very popular among her students. A couple of years ago, her student recognised her from a distance, in USA.
    I, my wife Kaumudini and my children Premal & Dhruv pray to Almighty to give Manuben’s soul it’s due place in His abode.

    Manuben,
    Very inspiring and enthusiastic women.
    She was like sugar…she could mix to anyone and talk to anyone. She gave her love and care as mother to me. She gave all her support to family. She will be always in our memory. She always stood with me in all my life circumstances.
    Jayashree sheth

    Manumasi,
    So loving personality. Unforgettable women. She stood so strong in her life with smiling face. She was always ready to pass her knowledge to everyone. Whenever we visited her place she always kept something special as secret book or some paper cutting or magazine as per our interest that was so exiting for us to go to Mumbai. She was very happy to do things for others if anyone asks something she will make sure she does that for that person.
    Our prayers are with her to rest her in peace.

    Manufoi was strong, loving, and independent human being who genuinely cared for the wellbeing of everyone in her family. I have great childhood memories of visiting her home in Mumbai and spending time with Ruchiraben and Prachi. She made many sacrifices for us throughout her life and even during my phone conversation with her the weekend before she passed she ensured everyone was staying in touch in USA and India. She was the warm blanket that kept us cozy and secure. You will be greatly missed Manufoi! May you rest in peace!
