Mr. Shukla was an epitome of simplicity and generosity. Hospitality was an awesome feature which he exhibited. All will remember him for his great sense of humor, always being so full of life and for his mischievous smile. He lived such a happy life and loved nothing more than spending time with his family.
He was also very fond of food, eating and even a cocktail, particularly a little bit of Chivas Regal scotch. He was known to enjoy the pleasures of bananas and a simple piece of toast or two. As a provider, he could always be relied upon by his family regardless of the need. He also loved to watch tennis.
