    Paranjape Kaka was a kind-hearted gentleman. With his humility he would put people at ease. Even when we were new to Nashville and the Nashville Marathi community, we found him very easy to be friends with. Over the last few years it was always a pleasure to enjoy his company in various social functions.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Pushpa tai, Sachin, and Shefali, please accept on sincere condolences.

    I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Paranjape’s passing. He was a wonderful ophthalmologist. I always had great confidence in his diagnoses and treatments. My mother, son, friend, and I were all patients at one time or another. He and you, Mrs. Paranjape, were very kind. Dora Yates

    Dear Sachin,
    I just learnt the sad news that dear Yashwant passed away yesterday. Just a few days back, the picture looked quite promising. Therefore, this was all the more shocking. Please accept our heart-felt condolences over this major loss. Please convey the same to dear Pushpa vahini.

    I knew him as a budding artist in Mumbai. He had the dream of graduating from the renowned J.J. School of Arts. We used to meet often at various functions until he left for medical school to honor his father’s wishes. He was a very considerate guy and I have many fond memories of him which I will carry with me for many years. May he rest in peace under watchful sight of the Almighty.

    Pushpatai, Please accept our condolences. It is quite an unexpected news. Although we met occasionally, he would remind me of my maternal grandfather, kind and soft spoken. That is how i will remember him.
