WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT                           

Dear Friends,

 I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Kapasi along with the entire membership for the fantastic work they have done throughout the year and in putting this Gala together.

It is my honor and privilege to be the 40th president of IMANE – Indian Medical Association of New England.

IMANE represents something different for each of us.  I’d like us to reflect on this and determine what we want IMANE to be now and in the future and work on making it a reality.

We have tirelessly devoted our lives to working and taking care of our patients, through our sacrifices and diligence we are perfecting the art of Karma Yoga; through devotion and love Bhakti Yoga; through knowledge of self and others and our discipline Jnana Yoga.

It is with our collective efforts that we can endeavor to make the world a better place for us and future generations to come.  I hope to continue many of the projects in progress and strive to take on new projects.

I hope to strengthen the bonds of the fabric that create us as a community which is broadening and diversifying and becoming more multicultural over the coming year.

In the vain and proud words of a famous New Englander and former President of the United States, “ask not what this [organization] can do for you but what you can do for this [organization],” for with the giving, generosity of our time and resources we can endeavor to make the world and community around us a better place for all of us.

India is the sleeping lion which has awakened and is rising.  Over the last 30 years, it has changed significantly and become a leader in all facets of life, yoga, ahimsa, vegetarianism, economy, technology and so much more.  We are the proud torchbearers of our predecessors, let us lead and move forward.

I am humbled, challenged and inspired by this responsibility given to me and all of us.  Let’s make IMANE great for each and every one of us.  In order to accomplish this, we must recognize what’s important and relevant for you.
