Death and Commemoration

Pandit Shyamaji Krishna Varma did not live to witness the independence of Bharat, but his efforts, conviction and confidence of India gaining its freedom from British rule in future was strong and unshakable as he made the prepaid arrangements with the local government of Geneva, Ville de Geneve, and St Georges cemetery to preserve his and his wife's ashes (Asthis) at the cemetery for one hundred years and to send their urns to India whenever it becomes independent during that period.

Shri Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat State, finally succeeded in returning the urns of Pandit Shyamaji and his wife Bhanumati on August 22, 2003 - fifty five years after Indian Independence.
