Deva Borah, AANA
My wife Anu and I currently live in Chesapeake, VA. We have two sons Arun and Barun, and two grandchildren Caleb and Elana. I was born near Nagaon, Assam; came to the US in 1975; and lived in Mississippi, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and finally Virginia through my education and work. I am a civil engineer working for over 30 years in universities, government agencies, and private companies.
We joined AANA in 1982. To me, AANA is my away-from-home family and its members are my cousins, nephews, and nieces. Anu and I make our best efforts to visit these extended family members during our annual reunions, the Assam Conventions, and also by participating in its local activities and gatherings, including Bihus, Tithis, birthdays, memorials, etc. It has been my privilege to serve this family at various levels, locally and nationally, and work with its founders and members towards building it stronger for our future generations.
