We wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
With Makarsankrant/Lohri/Pongal/Magh Bihu (Jan. 14) and India Republic Day (Jan. 26) a few weeks away, we have put together a list of the festivities in our Florida communities. And, of course, there are several other events taking place also.
Check out our in-depth profile of Fort Myers-based Damyanti Gupta, the first woman engineer to work at Ford Motor Co. Hers is a remarkable and inspirational story. We have reviewed two books, “Second Chance” and “A Father & Son’s Journey: 11 Life Lessons” by Florida authors: Dr. M.P. Ravindra Nathan, a long-time Khaas Baat columnist; and Malhar and Dr. Ram Ramcharran, respectively. And do check out our picks for the most memorable Hindi films of 2018.
