Brook Meadows The Mahajan Family moves to Brook Meadows When a couple attends a neighborhood party after moving in THAT VERY DAY, you know they are going to be great neighbors! That’s just what Param and Rami Mahajan did when they joined us Oct.12th at Julia Barth’s Fall Patio Party. They were born in India and immigrated to the US in their 20’s. After living on Long Island, New York for 27 years, Novartis relocated Rami to their Fort Worth office where she is the Director of Accounting and Reporting. Param, an engineer, is a private consultant and loves tinkering around the house. Rami laughs that

her hobby is watching Ballywood movies on her IPAD. Their son, Vikram, is 15 and a sophomore at Colleyville Heritage HS where he is in the band playing tenor sax. Their daughter, Anisha, is a pre-med biology major at the University of New York at Binghamton. Param says he fell in love with Texas the first time he saw it and they are amazed at how friendly everyone is. They chose this area because of our schools but zeroed in on Brook Meadows because “My heart says I want to live in Colleyville and it just felt like home”. Well, welcome home!
