Lokvani is delighted to present the third 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. Rekha Palriwala and Jayantibhai Patel 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!

Rekha Palriwala

In a growing community with burgeoning associations, sprawling hobby/interest groups we can count on one person who will be behind the lights, beavering away furiously, and calmly dealing with the loud entropy that is part of our Indian DNA.

That is Rekha Palriwala.

Over the last 15 years her quiet, confident, assured, immense, unseen support has helped multiple organizations and events bind us together.

Whether it is ticketing, distribution, back-stage grind, marketing; host supporters in her hospitable and warm home - she's everywhere.

For our events, hers is the first name we count on. And fortunately for many years, she was our neighbor. Prashanth said it best "If the world had neighbors like her and Mahesh-Ji, it would be a far more wonderful place"


Jayantibhai Patel

Jayantibhai Patel is a member Director of Volunteering for Indian Circle for Caring USA Inc., (ICC).  He has been involved with ICC from its beginning in August 2007.  Over the years has made many contributions – serving ICC clients, helping with community outreach efforts, being an advocate for ICC and its mission as well as helping with program and projects.
