Help Me Support JANJ!

Junior Achievement is an organization whose mission I truly believe in – to help each child reach his/her full potential.  JA empowers young people to own their economic success through their trained volunteers who deliver real-world learning opportunities through a combination of classroom experiences, simulations, college and career readiness days, job shadow events and more.

I am hosting a JA Bowl-a-thon on Thursday, April 30th at Harmony Lanes in Middletown, NJ!).  This is a major fund raiser for Junior Achievement   There will be other major corporations participating as well – some you may recognize such as Cisco, Verizon and Alcatel-Lucent.

JA will provide pizza, bowling shoes and soft drinks and we hope to have raffles as well.  It will be a great social event and will give us an opportunity to have some fun and make a real difference to others at the same time.  We are striving to recruit between 12 and 18 teams of 6 people each across the state.  Each team should solicit sponsors and it would be great if they could collect $660/team in donations.

 Do you want to donate to a really good cause.. Here’s your chance!

Spring Blooms: Changes in the Wind

timeforchangeSo spring started a few weeks ago, but when you step outside, it’s still feels like early winter. What is going on? I’m still wearing my heavy winter jackets and still can’t go outside without freezing!

I think I have the answer. Mother Nature does not want us to forget that she controls the weather and now the new norm is controlled by her. i’m ok with that, but come on! This is April already and I want to put my winter stuff away and take out my spring/summer stuff.

I wanted to share with my followers that I’ve come to a T junction of my life and I’ve decided to make a left turn.. That turn leads me to… India!

 I”ve decided leave New Jersey and move to India so I can get closer to my roots. I need to know more about my cultural heritage and moving to Mumbai will enable to get closer to my real self.. It doesn’t mean Dad’s taxi will stop.. It’ll be just rename to the Mumbai Taxi…

It’s been fun writing about Dad’s Taxi adventures in NJ, but after long and careful deliberation, I think that this is the best for my long term happiness to go back to my roots. It’s been a great few years, but in a few months, I’ll be posting my unique perspective on life from my mother land… India..

Thanks to all my friends for all you support as wrestled with this decision…
