This week's sale is not your typical estate...we have one of the most fun eclectic homes we have had in a long while! This is the estate of an incredibly brilliant mother, entrepreneur, and dancer by the name of Malathi Ramji and we will be liquidating a lifetime of her treasures this weekend in Encino!

Ms Ramji was born in India and completed her studies at St Xavier's College in what was then known as Bombay, India...graduating with honors and was ranked first overall of all the students graduating that year in the University of Bombay system....a stunning beauty and and equally talented Indian Classical Dancer she performed and taught dance while maintaining a career in computer programming in first London then in Canada. Her dancing was even featured in the 1963 film Nine Hours to Rama. A traditional Indian young lady - her marriage was an arranged one and her husband worked with Hughes in Satellite Technology. The couple eventually settled in Virginia and then relocated to Southern California with their oldest, a daughter and their three sons. Always having an immense drive, she balanced motherhood with her career in dance and then in the eighties she returned to her career in programming becoming a freelance consultant and programmer and taught courses at Learning Tree on the weekends. After a decade of programming and teaching she established Tamanna Designs which specialized in servicing the print needs of corporate clients. Sadly, the family lost their patriarch in the early nineties but with four children and a demanding work schedule, Ms Ramji continued with her entrepreneurial spirit and began Ramji Enterprises in which she assisted others in investments to generate incomes through individual and group mentoring. Never one to retire...even though she had...she had the guest house on the property remodeled and offered a retreat with home prepared Indian meals and natural herbal treatments. In the pictures of the estate...we have featured several photographs of Ms Ramji from her dance portfolio.

This home contains lots of interesting fun items! From traditional Hindu and Indian to Mid-Century to Great Indian and Bollywood Records and CDs, to Great Indian and Other Books Including Texts on Religion, Food, and General Interest, to Tons and Tons of Fantastic Cooking Ephemera and Spices and Such! Great Indian to Traditional Clothing and Accessories, Silver and Costume Jewelry, and More!On behalf of her four children, Again L.A. invites you to come out to Encino and share in this wonderfully eclectic estate!
