Last week during the Nineteenth (19th) Annual Cultural Glimpses of India (19CGoI) held on Saturday, November 19, 2016 between 4:00 and 8:30 PM at 1601 S Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Lee Hall Auditorium, the Executive Committee and Board of Trustees of India Association of Tallahassee (www.iatlh.org) gave me a surprise!

They gave the IATLH Commitment Award for my sustained service to the organization. The committee kept it as a close secret and Bhanu and I were pleasantly shocked. Only two other people have been given this award. I later heard that the decision was unanimous. Happy to share the photo which my friend took after the event (we were not even prepared to take a photo even though I took 550 snaps during the event!).
