Dear NRIVA Family,

Happy New Year 2020 to all NRIVA Family.

NRIVA, came a long way ever since it was founded, and living up to its motto “Connecting to Serve” by connecting 1000’s of Vasavites worldwide. Many hard working volunteers’ commitment and dedication has been main driving force in achieving this motto and mission of NRIVA by spreading the Vasavi Matha’s message “Dharmam-Seelam-Ahimsa”. I am proud to say that I am one of those volunteers and have been part of NRIVA since the inception and helped the organization grow brick by brick along with many active volunteers.

The modern India that I know, have a lot of groups in forefront with a positive thought to help the needy and betterment of underprivileged. I feel NRIVA is one of those esteemed organizations and provides a best platform for all of us to help the underprivileged in the society back home, here in USA and across the world, and at the same time gives us an opportunity to come together as a family to share the values, ideas.

Even though we all live far from India , I am sure everyone know about our rich culture close to their heart. NRIVA can give us a chance to appreciate our culture and customs and at the same time, we can pass on the same and values to our next generations.

As I took the highest office of NRIVA, and it comes with a big responsibility, and I feel you are all with me to take the NRIVA to the next level.

Thanks to all those who worked so hard to bring NRIVA to this level. Now we have bigger responsibility even work harder to take it to the next level.

I would like to extend special thanks to all the 2018-2019 Term EC and Board of Directors, NRIVA Core Team.

Thank you very much for all those who came forward to help us and be part of this great organization in 2020-2021 Term.

With all your experience and expertise, let’s all work together to build stronger and better NRIVA for generations to come. 

We have scheduled our first EC and BOD Joint meeting in Chicago from January 31st -Feb 2nd. Many of our teams and active volunteers are working on various activities and we would like to meet in person to discuss and review our Vision and Mission for the Term 2020-2021” with all our leadership teams.

We have been working on establishing NRIVA Vision for the Term 2020-21 with a mission to take our organization to the next level.

During this Joint Meeting,  we will be ready to put forward our Vision for 2020-21 term proposal before our leadership, which will showcase what our plans and activities for next few years.

We promise that we will promote transparency and will listen to each and every individual who can bring up the change and make a positive difference. 

We would like to promise you all that we have exciting 2 years ahead of us and request you all to join us to serve the organization and promote Vasavi Matha message.

I believe in one thing, “Manava Seve, Madhava Seva”.  As Dalai La ma said, if you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion”.

Thank you all very much,

Jai Vasavi Matha !
