MELBOURNE, 2 December 2023: An evening at the Park Hyatt, behind the Victorian Parliament, with colour, glitter and professionals rubbing shoulders, is not a bad idea. This was my second there in the last few months and a memorable experience. The massively shining place was a fitting honour for the awards ceremony of the ‘Top 100 South Asian Innovative Business Leaders’ here.

The lobby had all the prominent South Asians with glasses of Red and White wine. The Mexican dancers and a Dhol(walla) fitted well for clicking photos. Many a known and unknown were around and making new friends perfectly possible. The music of live Saxophone and Violin criss-crossed the rather enchanting ambience.

Professionals of Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Bhutanese and Nepalese origin under one roof was in itself a miracle. Geopolitics took a back seat and it seemed as migrants the lucky country had united us in unprecedented bonding.

Inspirational speaker, Sriram Iyer, one of the awardees, in a Linkedin post says, ” It was a tremendous honour to be awarded as one of the TOP 100 South Asian Innovation Business Leaders in Victoria… and, always a pleasure to be recognised for the hard work you have put in.”

The 100 odd professionals were awarded in categories including Arts & Culture, Beauty, Business, Education, Legal, media, Real Estate, Fitness, Healthcare Management, and Hospitality & Tourism. A beautiful hefty and glossy brochure details all the awardees and their profiles. The speeches and dances added the much needed boost to the event. Organiser Kavita Chhabra and team did a good job.
