Hinduja Brothers receive 'Lifetime Achievement Award'

MUMBAI: Promoters of Hinduja Group, Srichand and Gopichand Hinduja, were presented with a 'Lifetime Achievement Award' for their contributions to the United Kingdom's Asian community.

"This is a great honour and makes our responsibility more difficult and harder. Our dharma and duty is to serve the Asian community in Britain as best as we can," said Hinduja Group co-chairman Gopichand Hinduja in his acceptance speech.

Srichand and Gopichand Hinduja were nominated alongside another NRI businessman Anil Agarwal, Chairman, Vedanta Resources, former England cricket captain Nasser Hussain and Indian-born 102-year-old marathon runner Fauja Singh.

"This government sincerely values the immense contribution of Britain's Asian community and as Prime Minister I am extremely proud to lead a truly diverse nation where people of all backgrounds live and work so well together," said British Prime Minister David Cameron in a special message sent for the awards night.

The Asian Achievers Awards (AAA), in its 13th year now, are organised by the ABPL Group, publishers of 'Asian Voice' and 'Gujarat Samachar' newspapers in the UK, to celebrate the achievements of south Asians based in Britain.

This year's awards were dedicated towards highlighting the achievements of Asian women and all the money raised from a charity auction was earmarked for the Lily Foundation, a charity working against human trafficking in India and the UK.

"Large countries have lots of problems and these take time to solve. But I love the idea of India and I am confident that the time for India has come," said Indian high commissioner to the UK Jaimini Bhagwati, a special guest at the event along with sari-clad Cherie Blair who described herself as 'an honorary member of the Asian community'.
