In my 18+ years of association with IAGB, I have seen it through thick and thin. In the current times, we are at a greatly evolving juncture within and beyond the community. I would like to see IAGB work together as a diverse Community wherein we act responsibly, reliably, and efficiently, respect the community and beyond, embrace differences or conflict of opinions with empathy and understanding, hold each other with love while encouraging and soliciting open communication among and between each other.

A huge shout out to my team, each of whom are gems by virtue of their work within the community and their unique gifts of skills. I am honored and privileged to have them in my team and look forward to doing great things together!

A big ‘Shout Out’ to the outgoing President Vaishali Gade for her exceptional leadership in the previous term – I have big shoes to fill and exemplary work to carry forward!

‘Thank you’ to the wonderful community and beyond, for providing me this opportunity to serve my beloved community yet again, this time to my delight, is as the President of my much-loved India Association of Greater Boston!

Let us each be a rainbow in someone’s cloud…

Much love and regards,

Our Initiatives

IAGB, as a unifying and largest Indian diaspora entity in the New England region, has been lacking in establishing the connects with local US and India government/leadership.

As a cheerful giver, IAGB pledges to give back to the place we call home, by monthly food, toiletries and clothing donations to local shelters or food banks to provide support to our less fortunate neighbors.

From stress relief and self-soothing to emotion regulation and physiological benefits, music plays a powerful role in mental health and well-being for all, especially the youth in immigrant families.

IAGB strives to contribute to enabling socially active seniors and help them build a greater sense of belonging and higher self-worth levels.

Trailblaze trademark cultural programs to keep the Pan-Indian American community connected with the culture of our motherland, India; and to bring to the mainstream community at large,

We strive to Create a visible presence and voice for the Indian American community in New England.
