International Hindi Association with these thoughts expressed in her own words –
“Few years ago when I was in India, I never thought of working in this zone of Hindi. When I moved here in a few years I felt there is a need to add the support and join hands for spreading Hindi knowledge and awareness, it brings people close, builds a supportive knowledge seeking community. There is so much wisdom lying in our literature which I would love to pass on. 
I don’t want this love for Hindi and the ability to interact, read and seek knowledge end with our generations here. I want to be able to bring the joy of knowing the language and culture to our next generation. This will make them connect and relate to their parents and to their grandparents.“
