Dear all,

I am writing with sad news. Dr. Manju Rima Brind, who was a Hindi tutor in the Vassar Self-Instructional Language Program (SILP) for 20 years, passed away on April 3rd, 2021.

Dr. Brind was an exceptional colleague and has been missed in SILP since she retired last fall. She leaves her husband, her mother, her brother, two children, two stepchildren, and two grandchildren. In addition to her work at Vassar, Dr. Brind was a long-time member and supporter of the Hindu Samaj of Wappingers Falls, NY.

A funeral service is scheduled for Tuesday April 6th, 2021 at the Straub, Catalano & Halvey Funeral Home on 55 East Main Street, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590. The viewing is scheduled 9:00-10:30AM with services following at 10:30AM.

Vassar is honored to have had Dr. Brind work with hundreds of students over her time with us; let us express our sympathy to her family.
