Lokvani Honors Community Heroes - II

Ranjani Saigal
10/31/2018

Lokvani is delighted to present the second set of community heroes to be honored at the 2nd Annual Lokvani Community and Youth Night to be held on Dec. 15 at Ambrosia Banquet Hall in Foxborough, MA. Jyoti Muzumdar and Usha Verma are being recognized for their tireless support of community work. We humbly salute their work. In addition to honoring the heroes, the evening features great entertainment, a lovely feast and DJ dancing. Buy your tickets for the heroes night. Come celebrate the holidays with us!

Jyoti Muzumdar
Jyoti Muzumdar has been a member of the Chinmaya Mission since 1996.  Always wearing a big smile, ever ready to help everyone, Jyoti ji makes herself very useful at the Chinmaya Mission.  Although she has a petite and humble appearance, her work ethics are great and the amount of effort she puts in is huge. 

Chinmaya Mission is lucky to have her expertise in decoration and her preciseness in making everything look so tidy and beautiful, including the closets.  Whether it is teaching kids at Balavihar or being always punctual and helping during events at the temple or being at the external events as an ambassador of the mission, taking care of visitors or Acharyas at the temple, helping summer camps, etc., Jyoti ji is always available, and ever ready to help.  Whenever we need help or we are perhaps clueless of where things are, we jokingly say call 911 – that is Jyoti ji’s number! Thus, she supports and enables many volunteers to carry out their work.

However, it does not end here, in spite of being a senior citizen herself, she also makes her presence felt by helping at a Senior center in the Greater Boston area.  This super-energetic person who never boasts about how many hours she has quietly put in towards the community is a role model to several of us who always talk about aging beautifully.

Usha Verma
Usha Verma, M.A., Licensed Social Worker (LSW)  is an active member of the India Society of Worcester (ISW) since the early 1980's. During her first few years with ISW, Usha became teacher at the cultural school teaching Hindi language, Music (bhajans) and a religion class. Beside her role as a school teacher,  Usha served as Chairperson of the Crisis Committee for more than 15 years. Although she has stepped down as chairperson, she continues to be an active volunteer at the same committee. Usha Verma is also a Domestic Violence Prevention Advocate at Saheli. Usha  has worked several years serving elders in the local Worcester community and with adults who have special needs. She graduated with distinction from Punjab University in Chandigarh, India, with a Master’s of Liberal Arts degree specializing in music. Usha immigrated to the United States in 1982, raised her own family of three children and continues to follow her passion for sitar education and performance in New England area.
