In the evening, Zia Mody P ’10 hosts a gathering where we meet parents and prospective parents of Brandeis students.  Zia is one of India’s most prominent lawyers; she can constantly be found on lists of India’s most influential women.  She’s also an exuberant personality, as zealously attached to people and educational institutions as she is to her work.  This evening she introduces us to the principal and members of the community of the J.B. Petit School, her alma mater and the alma mater of her daughters, including Aarti, Brandeis ’10.   Many of those in the room offer us insightful and helpful suggestions about how to expand the visibility of Brandeis in the Mumbai and broader Indian community.
