At NRI of the year awards, we believe there’s a winner in each one of you
And though you’ve so long preferred lives of anonymity, we’ll not let it be. Hundreds of miles away from your cushy comfort zones – whether it is at NASA where 38% of the workforce is Indian, the sizeable wolfs of Wall Street, the Indian-fired woks at Chinatown or Piccadilly Circus, there are silent armies of NRIs quietly chugging about their careers and upping the ante, without so much as a status update or a victory dance.
So, if you are a scientist working at NASA, a surgeon working in USA, a media baron who has led a team from the front during the Nepal earthquake, an academician who bettered the Montessori model, a student whose answer scripts are hard bound and preserved for posterity, a danseuse who has brought Assam’s Xattriya dance on the world stage or brought hope and cheer back into the lives of battered and abused housewives, we’re all ears. Tell us your story. For, we believe the kind of success you’ve achieved and the number of lives you’ve touched is phenomenal. You inspire imaginations, you make hearts swell with pride and you evoke inspiration. And for all the sleepless nights, the bustle and the grime, the aches and nips, the snakes and ladders, we’ll bestow the tiaras and induce the awes. See you at the red carpet!
