Northborough - Zinda Dilli! (Lively soul!) There is no better way of describing Rani Nautiyal, who passed away on January 24, 2017 at 91 years of age. She was never 91 years ‘old’ because if there was one thing she hated; it was being old!

ISW kicked off its Religious event series with the celebration of Makar Sankrant / Pongal / Lodhi on January 15 at the India Center. ISW Marathi Shala Parents' group organized this event with an enthusiasm. The program started with a Ganesha Vandana sung by Marathi Shala student Dhruv Jagan. Then Mrs. Vaijayanti Joshi explained the importance of celebration of Sankrant and how we worship the Sun on this occasion. She said 'back in India the people worship Sun, the God of energy and light. The Sun shifts into zodiacal sign of Makar on its celestial path. This is the first change in the zodiac after winter solistice.'
