About Us

September 1983 : First Meeting at was held at 1797 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA (Mr. Kidar N Vaid's residence), for the purposes of

initiating the formation of a body to observe our religious and cultural events with unity and togetherness.

Motto of the meeting was: "United we stand, divided we fall". community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.

Our Mission

The United India Association of New England, Inc. was founded in 1984 with the core mission to preserve, promote and nurture the values of our Indian heritage by planning, developing and executing programs which bring our community together. 


Since 1984, the United India Association has been very active in pursuing and implementing the Core Mission. In addition to other activities and functions, we regularly hold a festive and elaborate New Year's Party in the ballroom of a premier hotel, Seminars , a Family Picnic in summer and most importantly, a professionally produced Diwali Celebration , rich with music, dance, and drama from many regions of India. 


To sustain our organization, we need our members to take an active role in planning and executing the functions we all look forward to each year. We are hoping that some of you will be inspired to serve your community with your talents, great and small. Many of us would gladly volunteer our time but are unsure of our own ability to serve. Don't be shy to express your interest. We will find a place for you. 

Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
