Avi Verma: Bringing a Hint of India Directly to Your Homes


CHICAGO, IL -For people migrating to other countries, visiting a place of worship can be a source of positivity and keeping the faith they practice intact. But the struggle and busy lives make it difficult.

The same is the case with numerous Indians who are unable to visit temples due to various reasons like proximity, old age and busy schedules and transportation. For them, Avi Verma, a businessman, community activist and an acclaimed community member, more popularly known as Maiya Devotee who was conferred upon Doctorate degree from a prestigious Medical University, came up with a solution – the first ever non-commercial religious channel.

Jagran TV, a brainchild of Dr. Avi Verma, who has been a resident of Chicago for over 3 decades, has been a source of positivity as well as spirituality for many Indians in Chicago. It is helping the community practice their faith along with being a source of entertainment.

The channel, which was successfully running for over a decade, had a small break when Avi’s health took a toll in 2016. But, with the community’s interest and support, he is back in action. With their first Chowki (a musical session) live via Facebook on May 31, 2020, the channel is up and running. The support is humongous this time and his page got over 7000 organic likes within just a week. Guess, that’s the power of positivity that his efforts bring to people. The page plans to present live musical sessions by famous devotees and artists from the US as well as India every Saturday and Sunday at 8.30PM IST and 10.00am CST (US) and the slots for the same have been booked until September already.
