dc.description.abstract Prabha Bala was born in 1948 in Shimla, India. She grew up in various parts of India and went to school in Chennai where she developed an interest in the classical Indian arts. She moved to Houston in 1971 with her husband and since then, has witnessed the development of Indian culture and community in the City of Houston. An extension of her deep interest in classical Indian music and dance, Mrs. Bala helped found the Classical Arts Society of Houston and worked on the Asian Arts subcommittee in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. She has also been involved with many non-profit organizations such as the India-American Charity Foundation, Teach for America, and Daya. In this interview, Mrs. Bala discusses her passion for the arts, her involvement in numerous organizations, her thoughts on the growth of Houston and India, and her favorite life advice.
