Referring to his favourite photograph from 1946 of his grandfather Muhammad Hussain Hashim Premji standing and speaking at an event as President of IMC, then known as Indian Merchants’ Chamber, flanked by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and other illustrious figures from our history. Recalling the ties, he mentioned, “for me personally, it is a big honour as there is no other industry body, that the Mahatma chose to become a member of the Chamber which saw its purpose and role beyond that of being an industry body and so itself as an integrator and interface between industry and the most important social issues of the time.

Congratulating all the recipients of the Awards and especially, the lifetime achievement award winners, Rishad Premji said that there could not be a better recognition more relevant and more contemporary in the world of today where Digital Technology has been truly all pervasive.
