Transitions: Usha and Ram Chandra Moving to West Coast

Usha and Dr. Ram Chandra of Mt Lebanon, after nearly 30 years of productive professional and social lives here, are moving to San Jose, Calif, to live close to their daughter and grandchildren in their retirement. They are with their first grandchild Alok in the picture.  They are moving in early July, 2014

Usha & ChandraDr. Chandra practiced pediatric gastroenterolgy at the Mercy Hospital as its director of Pediatric GI program, compassionately treating children having problems in the digestive tract. He was a clinical associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine and an academic staff at UPMC Children’s Hospital.  He has published many peer-reviewed articles in medical journals.

Usha was active at the S.V.Temple as a volunteer and in its governing bodies. She had helped organize the annual Pongal events at the Temple and others with arangetrams for years. She was active in the Tamil Nadu Foundation supporting charities in Tamil Nadu, India. Usha earned an MS in physics from Madras University, and administered her husband’s practice.

Ram Chandra, a connoisseur of Tamil film songs of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, has entertained many friends singing from memory. Chandra’s wacky sense of humor is known among his friends.

The Chandras supported the Pittsburgh Patrika providing encouragement and through ads in the magazine’s early critical days.

Their friends in Pittsburgh wish them good health and happiness in their retirement.  —  By K S Venkataraman  ♦
