Ms. Vazirani-Fales parents, Dr. Ras Mohun Halder and Sulekha Halder, were very influential in what she did. Her father had a PhD and specialized in education for the blind, while also working at the embassy of India. He was a great inspiration to the family. Another inspiration was brother, who is a doctor and a specialist in dermatology. Ms. Vazirani-Fales knew she wanted to be successful like her family, so she began her journey by earning an AB in psychology with minors in history and political science from Guilford College in 1959. She followed that up by receiving her JD from Howard University in 1979.
Ms. Vazirani-Fales is most proud of working for her state and county with a member of Congress. It is an honor that is so highly regarded in the United States and to be chosen to serve that position. She is truly indebted to Maryland State Senator Ida Ruben and Congresswoman Connie Morella who took her from a local county position to the state and from there she went to Congress with Ms. Morella. She gave her the opportunity to thrive and is blessed that Ms. Morella had that trust in her to take her that far. Ms. Vazirani-Fales began her career as a staff legislative director at the Montgomery County Delegation General Assembly of Maryland from 1981 to 1987. In 1987, she became the legislative counsel to Congresswoman Constance A. Morella at the United States House of Representatives until 1994. She then moved to a position of counsel for the subcommittee on the postal service, Committee for Government Reform for the United States House of Representatives. In 2000, she earned the title of deputy staff director and counsel of the subcommittee on the DC government reform, where she held that position for two years before landing the position of counsel for the subcommittee on civil service.
As a testament to her success, Ms. Vazirani-Fales was inducted as a member of Phi Delta Phi. She was a member of the staff of Volunteers for the Visually Handicapped from 1973 to 1979 and then a member of the board of directors from 1979 to 1981. Ms. Vazirani-Fales was also a member of the board of directors for the Manipal Education and Medical Foundation from 1970 to 1992.
