It was an unexpected honour to win the ‘People’s Choice’ Award in Arts and Entertainment at the ‘Light of India’ Awards in NY on June 1st. This second annual event fosters a sense of community and support. The room was filled with people I admire from Siddhartha Mukherjee who wrote ‘The Emperor of  All Maladies’ to internet moguls Sabeer Bhatia and Gurbaksh Chahal to luminaries from the Harvard Medical School like Dr Sengupta. I also got a chance to see old friends like Pooja Batra, Sendthil Ramamurthy, Ujwala Raut and Padma Lakshmi who also won an award. 
Makes me want to stay true…and keep trying.
Ah, and the event was held at the Pierre on Central Park. It’s a Taj property and the executive chef was at Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad before. He came out to greet me. I love being Indian. Everywhere I go, there’s someone I know.
