Ms. Kusum Chandrapal, 88, sings along with other devotees at a 'bhajan' (devotional song) session Thursday night, Nov. 7, 2013 in Shanthi Mandir - a community hall and a place of worship for Indian American residents in Columbia. The bhajans are held every Thursday evening and are mostly attended by women and little children.
Ms. Chandrapal, Dr. Meera Chandrasekhar’s mother, has been living with her daughter and son-in-law, Dr. Holalkere R. Chandrasekhar, ever since her husband passed away in 1995. She spends three days a week at MU Adult Day Connection, an adult day care center, enjoying the company of other participants.
