I still remember running with Harada-san with him helping us with our luggage! Well it is not always that a MD of a foundation would extend that courtesy to mere college students! Honda Foundation very graciously and generously gave me the chance to share their culture and I am very grateful for that. This award I earnestly believe is a phenomenal step taken by the Honda Foundation to improve Indo-Japanese ties and a great initiative to attract Indian talent to Japan. Lastly, I would only like to add my very personal feeling; India is full with wonderful stories about Japan and I was so happy to see that all of them are true! I pray that it forever remains the same and our two ancient countries forever remain best friends.
