Noted Bollywood actor Anupam Kher was honoured as a ‘Distinguished Fellow’ by IndiaGlobal – a leading think-tank that works on the issues concerning NRIs and India’s position with the world.
The actor was given a fellowship on November 3, 2018 at the 3rd IndiaGlobal Summit organized by India Global. The event was held at the prestigious MIT Sloan School of Management in Boston, and was facilitated by MIT Sloan India Business Club.
On this occasion Anupam Kher said, “This honour gives me a further sense of responsibility towards my country. A lower middle class Kashmiri boy from Shimla has come a long way. Jai Ho”. The former national award winner and film director Maj Ashok Kaul, Vice Chairman of IndiaGlobal noted, “It is indeed a momentous occasion that someone from the Indian film fraternity is given such a honour”.
Giving her Chief Guest address, Minister for Rural Development, Government of Maharashtra Smt Pankaja Munde said, “Those days are gone where we want to market India’s depravity, now we want to market India’s strength”. Pankaja was leading the delegation of four women self-help-groups from rural Maharashtra. Smt R Vimla, CEO MSRLM told the gathering about the amazing work done by these small women microentrepreneurs and urged American-Indians to adopt the goods made by SHGs to promote quality hand-made items in United States.
The 3rd IndiaGlobal Summit also discussed the growing importance of a relationship between India, USA and China. On this occasion the Senior Fellow and the Convener of IndiaGlobal Dr. Nikhil Agarwal said, “Now we can proudly say that the sun never sets on Indian diaspora. Indians are present in every corner of the world and many of them are top entrepreneurs, Prime Ministers and Presidents of their countries”. Co-chairs of the summit Sanjeev Tripathi and Dinesh Nagraj summarised the entire conference and gave Diwali gifts to speakers and delegates.
