It's about

connecting generations.

OUR FOUNDER

Vaishali Patel has been teaching Gujarati language and culture to adults and children since 2002.

Growing up in Baroda, India and immigrating permanently to the United States at age 16, Vaishali is uniquely positioned with a view into the best of both worlds.

Living in an extended Gujarati family inspired Vaishali to pass along the value of her homeland traditions to her own 2 children by teaching them and others in the community.

Her outreach programs have since expanded to include Live Zoom Gujarati, Hindi, and Punjabi Classes, an online course that can be done at your own pace, learning tools such as the Gujarati and Hindi Memory Games, Gujarati Alphabet Flashcards, Tales of Krishna and Ramayana and Clothing of India available on Amazon, all developed to enhance a deeper understanding of Desi culture and relationships with our extended family.

I am a lawyer professionally, practicing part time while being a mother full time. I was born in Baroda, Gujurat and have been blessed to live in Baroda for a few years in elementary school. I believe language is the necessary bridge that will take our culture to future generations. I have been teaching a group of kids Gujurati locally and it has been the most gratifying experience to see little ones start speaking and writing in their mother tongue. I hope to have the same experience while teaching with Sanskar Teaching. See you all in class!
