Indo-American society recognizes Celebrate Fremont leaders

NEWARK Executive committee members and volunteers of Celebrate Fremont were among those honored by the Federation of Indo Americans, Northern California chapter, at the annual India Republic Day celebration.

In granting the awards Sunday, board members of the chapter wanted to acknowledge Celebrate Fremont, a grass-roots group of community leaders spearheading Fremont's yearlong 50th anniversary celebration, and affirm the organization's mission to enhance the quality of life in the Fremont community, said Yogi Chugh, chapter spokesman.

Chugh said the federation, which hosts the annual Festival of India celebration in Fremont during the summer, was discussing ways to incorporate the anniversary into the festival this year.

"We wanted to recognize the volunteers involved with Celebrate Fremont," Chugh said. "They've really played an important role in celebrating the best aspects of our community."

Neerja Raman, a San Jose resident and author of the management guide "The Practice and Philosophy of Decision Making: A Seven Step Spiritual Guide," was honored for serving as a role model and proponent of diversity in Hewlett-Packard's technology community.

"Neerja Raman's visionary and results-driven approach had created one of the most highly respected and motivated teams in HP's central research laboratory for the company's innovative camera and inkjet products," wrote the panel of judges. "Her team is geographically dispersed, global and a model of diversity."

Steve Cho, a Fremont City Council member, also received a plaque for his "outstanding contribution to the Tri-City communities, unrelenting commitment and dedication to preserving and enhancing the true values of democracy and freedom," and for his public service.

Nina Moore, a trustee on the Fremont Board of Education, also was recognized for her efforts in improving schools.

The annual awards social hour and dinner bring together community groups to celebrate India's becoming a republic 57 years ago and to recognize those who work for the secular and democratic principles of communities.
