Pravasi Bharatiya Divas

Nice to attend the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) (overseas Indian day) to mark the contribution of Overseas Indian community in the development of India hosted by the Acting Indian CG. Also met Pat Farmer AM who is starting a charitable run in India on 26 January. January 9 was chosen as the day to celebrate this occasion since it was on this day in 1915 that Mahatma Gandhi, described as the greatest Pravasi, returned to India from South Africa, led India’s freedom struggle and changed the lives of Indians forever. It was a privilege to speak on a Panel moderated by Sheba Nandkeolyar at the PBD in the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre a few years ago and to make comments and pose a question today….
