Mrs. Sarojini Thanabalasingham passed away peacefully on January 18, 2021. She was the devoted wife of late Mr. K. Thanabalasingham, beloved mother of late Mrs. Janaki Selvakumar, Mani Vannan and Thana Ahilesan. She was loving Mother-In Law of Selvakumar, Shivanthi Vannan and Subangi Ahilesan and loving Grandmother of Prashant, Shivashant, Dinesh, Krishan, Swati and Madhi. She was endearing sister to Late Mr. Vimalasingham, Late Mr. Puthirasingham, Late Mr. Kumarasingham, Bhavani Shanmugalingham and Arunthahy Ruthirarajah.
Sarojini was an accomplished Carnatic Vocalist, graduating from Ramanathan Music Academy and receiving advanced training from eminent musicians M.A. Kalyanakrishna Bagawathar, Maharajapuram Santhnam and Chithur Subramaniam Pillai. She also received special training in Hindu Devotional Music (Pann Isai) under Tharmapuram Swminathan and Kanchipuram Rajasekaran.
Sarojini was awarded the titles “Thevaramani” by His Holiness Swamy Shivantha and “Pann Isai Arasi” by the Maha Sannithanam of Thondaimandala Aatheenam of Kanchipuram. She has recalled with pride the privilege of being a music teacher at the Temple of Fine Arts in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, an Institution established by her spiritual Guru His Holiness Swamy Shanthananda.
A popular Carnatic Music and Thevaram teacher in New Jersey where she resided, Sarojini counted over 30 years as an international musical performance artist on TV, Radio and live concerts and as lead vocalist in Bhratha Natyam recitals. Her dedication to teaching young and old alike will be fondly remembered by her students and the community.
Perhaps, the most precious gift to her children and grandchildren was her pivotal guidance in instilling a spiritual conscience and love & appreciation for music. This will remain a lifelong fond memory that will surely be passed on to the next generation. May her soul rest in peace.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, January 25th from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at the Franklin Memorial Park Crematory, North Brunswick. Arrangements by the Gleason Funeral Home, Somerset.

Mrs. Sarojini Thanabalasingham fondly known as Sarojini aunty among us will be greatly missed. Where ever she went she carried an energy that brought happiness and enthusiasm. What I will remember always Sarjoini aunty will be her pride. Whether she walks into a community event or family gatherings, first thing we want to do is stand up in respect. Even to those who don’t know her achievements by her appearance she showed she is a well learned woman. In one on one conversation she shared her experience and provided her advice on bringing up children to managing difficult situations. Mrs. Thanabalasingham showed us how to lead a life as a good mother, wife and a friend. We will miss you Sarojini aunty, Rest in peace.

Eason, Kannan and families, please accept our deepest condolences on passing of Aunty Sarojini. We came to know Aunty well during the six years that Ashwini took vocal lessons with her many years ago. We are very thankful for her dedication to music and her commitment to imparting her knowledge to her students. We will always remember her frankness, friendly nature and ever smiling face. We consider it a pleasure to have known her.
Ashwini, Yaso and Nash Sivaganesh
