Back to JAINA Executive Committee 2011-13

Dr. Deepika K. Dalal

VP South East USA

My goals include a practical use of Anekantvad to bridge the gaps between different faiths. I also want to increase communication between Jain Centers to learn successful approaches to common problems and improve their outlook. I would also like to develop an education model to inspire and motivate young ones to keep our heritage.
