2014 Nobel Peace Laureate, Chief Guest
The speeches given by all the award winners and the judges were like musical compositions. I wanted them to keep speaking and not stop. I am not saying this because I am giving away these awards but I am really feeling very small to give away awards to these giants. If I sit by their feet and learn about humanitarian issues and Gandhian philosophy it will take me 15-20 years just to learn what they know.
I would like to thank Rahul Bhai for giving me this opportunity to present the prestigious Jamnalal Bajaj Awards. Our DNA is not only our link to our past generations it is also our link to our thoughts. The DNA of Gandhian thoughts are visible in the people who are giving, receiving and administrating these awards.
