Very sad to share the news that Jain scholar Dr. Sneh Rani Jain breathed her last at sagar, Madhya Pradesh in Chaitanya hospital at 5 AM on 21 June 2022. She was in ICU since yesterday. Her Funeral took place at 10am.

She was the first female Indian Pharmacist and known for her distinct work on Jainism & Indus valley Civilization.

Scroll below for her biography.
May her soul attain sadgati.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


Snehrani ji was my guru mother, we have done many seminars in the country and abroad, I and the Mahasabha have got to learn a lot from her knowledge and studies. She wrote many articles related to the Indus Valley Civilization. Condolences on her death. I do not have words to express. I pray to God that she may get Moksh.

Vijay K.Jain, Sagar

A great stalwart who had authoritatively explained in a convincing way that the Indus Valley civilization was based on Jain principles. She gave a lecture on this subject in Madaras university Jainology dept. Presided by the very Great Scholar Late Shri Iravatham Mahadevan. When she visited Chennai to deliver an Endowment lecture we had an opportunity to be with her to understand the meaning of several mystique line diagrams/symbols found in Jaina caves in Tamilnadu invariably. Triangle, Ladder, square with lines across etc. Many varieties. A large ocean-like-data we have lost forever.

Dr.K.Ajithadoss sir, Chennai

We were together in a seminar in Khandagiri. A marvelous lady with full of knowledge. We both together went to visit Udayagiri and Khandagiri. She shared a lot of philosophical thoughts with me.

Ajith Prasad sir, Karnataka

Sorry to know of her passing away. I met her first time in September 1993 at the Centennial of World Parliament of Religions where I was the the Coordinator of Jain Delegation from India. I still remember her singing a song in English – I love my Mahavira.

Retired ASI J. Manuel sir, MP

Manish Mehta, USA

Om shanti. A great loss to the society.

Professor Bhagchandra P.Jàin, Nagpur

I spoke to her in 2020 for a good 1+ hour. And hoped to meet her sometime. Despite her age, she sounded so excited & confident talking about Jainism and Indus Valley Script & Seals. She said she can understand the Indus script with Jainism perspective. She shared a lot of things, recalling her Trip to Chennai, staying with the renowned Tamil Scholar Late Iravatham Mahadevan sir, who looked up to her as his guru, a sister. Through her, he could understand the Indus script and he is one of the first & few to declare the Indus script is connected to Jainism. Fortunately I recorded that conversation being well aware of old age, it is now a treasurable memory of her….Om Shanti Shanti Shanti. 🙏🏼

Ms.Mital Lalan, Madurai

It’s personal loss to my family, she was father’s professor, had an opportunity to meet her last year, had conversation on different topics.

Akshay Bhaiji Jain

Mourne the loss of Shri Sneh Rani Jain, A scholar of extraordinary skills and Brahmachari of firm resolve. She leads a exploratory and research trip to MP Heritage sites – Deogarh, Sonagiri, Nainagiri. She was also present at the dept of Jainology, the University of Madras during my masters at multiple occasions; presenting research papers, taking workshops and more. Her claim that she deciphered the script of Harappa civilization within the framework of Jainism is what opened my eyes in multiple frames. We were fortunate to undertake research and exploratory pilgrimage with her to MP heritage sites, also attend her lectures on Jain significance of Harappa Seals.
