Check Out This Potential Scenario
Santosh Jain passed away in 2009. It was after her funeral that her husband, IU professor Chaman L. Jain, and their two children hit upon the idea of honoring her memory with the Santosh Jain Memorial Scholarship. In that way, the family felt Santosh's generous spirit could continue to teach others.
Before she died, her spirit manifested itself in the work she did for her community. And when an India Studies Chair was proposed at IU, she and Chaman rallied support for the effort. In addition, she always kept a place at her dinner table for international students far from their homes. Her encouraging spirit benefited her family the most, however.
"Her charming persona attracted many," Chaman says. "She taught me how to be tolerant and generous. I will remain indebted to her for the rest of my life."
Now that same spirit has inspired a gift that will shape young lives at IU. It's a gift befitting a woman whose kindness and generosity shaped her family.
