Letters to India Currents: 3/31/20

Copy of February 2020 Issue (2)

Dear Team Members, 

Your mail surely touched my heart, so simple and yet genuine.

It is a period of deep anxiety as we strictly follow the Government’s decision for all to stay indoors and maintain a fair distance from one another. Difficult perhaps for parents of young children and for several amongst us for whom a glimpse of the social world is an uncontrollable urge. But as the graph rises with  mounting casualties and still several others inflicted and convalescing, we should all take this call of Nature and tune in to its WILL: protect yourself and thereby protect nature.

Hoping good times will soon come by and the silver lining to this dark cloud will soon bring in happy sunshine.

In the meantime, thank you all for the cheerful introspection you give us.

A happy reader,

Nita (Dave) Jain, PGCTE, PhD


Hello India Currents,

Thank you for your media presence in these difficult times.  My wife and I are retired Indians, children off to their worlds and we feel blessed with good health so far and so good.  We are particularly proud of our community at large. 

Indian doctors, professionals and politicians are working in the best interest of America while holding on to our long tradition of ‘do no harm’.  

America gave us the opportunities to grow and we are now giving back in knowledge and resources we acquired. These coming months will challenge people from India.  We have unique opportunities to lift, support and lead in more creative ways that we ever imagined. 

In our small ways we are volunteering in public services in our community, and support of Sansthas like BK, Vedanta Society, Glides Church in San Francisco.  No bragging, but just a shout out for these organizations among many who are keeping their doors open despite the pandemic.  

Please continue to do what you are doing for the community and country at large.  With kind regards.

Satish and Surekha Chohan
