Dear NRIVA Family member,

Wish you all Happy and Prosperous New Year. With blessings of Vasavi Matha, may every day of the year glow with good cheer & happiness for you and your family.

Thank you to our Advisory Committee, Board, Executive team and all our members for giving me opportunity to serve as President for this esteemed organization. It’s great honor to be president of this organization with a mission of connecting to serve our vasavite families.

NRIVA has grown from two people’s thought, 10-20 founding members vision into today’s big reality. I would like to take a moment to thank the selfless vision of two of our founders Anand Garlapati and Vijay Chavva for laying foundation for NRIVA to bring all Vasavites together. In last 10 years, our organization has grown exponentially to new heights. First, I would like to thank all the fellow Vasavites, Chapter leads, Standing committee members, Volunteers who helped us to reach to this level. I have witnessed firsthand this organization growing from 1 chapter to 40+ chapters with more than 10000+ members. We all have come together as extended family to spread Vasavi Matha’s message “Dharmam – Seelam – Ahimsa” across the globe. Our Past President Ramesh Kalwala and his team has worked tirelessly for stabilizing the organization and fueled the growth of the organization. Our immediate past President Nagendra Gupta Garu and his team has executed wonderful convention in New Jersey with increased size and members. He has taken our organization to next level. Our immediate Past Chairman Suresh Katta garu has helped with process improvement and setting new By Laws for the organization.

I would like to welcome our Board chairman Pavan Kumar Darisi garu, all new Executive members and Board members who are going to help next 2 years to execute the vision of NRIVA.
