COMMUNITY WELFARE INITIATIVES:

While education continues to be the mainstay of her involvement with the community, she has made service to the neglected sections of community an article of faith, through the multi-pronged assistance that Indira Group has embarked upon to service organizations that are working for the welfare of the underprivileged.  This includes assistance to students, physically handicapped and orphaned children, senior citizens etc.  Also she has an abiding interest in the spiritual development of the students of Indira for which she has been consistently arranging talks and discourses by experts in Yoga and Indian spirituality.
