I was pleased to be a part of an event where so many Achievers could be found under one roof. Thank you for presenting the prestigious Indian Achievers Award 2021-22 upon me, Indian Achievers Forum. In my professional career, this is a really proud occasion. I'd like to express my deep appreciation for the IAF award. I had an incredible time with the Indian Achievers Forum from the minute I was nominated until the final selection. I hope that the IAF will continue to do a good job of recognising and motivating people by awarding them for their contributions towards the development of the nation.
