The list of the prestigious award has not been officially announced yet, but its recipients were informed by the Indian Government last week. Based in Chicago, Dr. Barai was instrumental in grand success of the historic Madison Square Garden event of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New York in September 2014. Dr. Shivangi, who is based in Mississippi, has played a key role in improving India-US relationship through lawmakers.
"It's an honour for me to have been selected for this prestigious award," said Shivangi. Barai said the credit for this award goes to hundreds of volunteers in New York, New Jersey and Chicago who worked with him for making the Madison Square Garden event a success. "I am accepting award on their behalf," he said.
