This is the best award I have ever received. It’s very surreal. It’s such a huge honour and I’m so happy to be a part of the ceremony today. Being at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in the presence of the honourable President, Prime Minister and all the dignitaries, sitting amongst the other accomplished awardees and mostly, having my family present, made today complete. I missed my dad…I know he would have been very proud.

India is one country where everyone is inviting and welcoming. There is so much beauty in the chaos. It seems that everything is confused and messy, but that is what makes it such a warm place. It’s got the nicest atmosphere than any country I’ve been to. You might like some foreign countries for shopping, eating, etc, but when it comes to people, here’s where I find the warmest ones.
