Desai, who was one of the 20 Indians from across the globe to bag the award, said, “Receiving an award abroad representing India is quite gratifying and it is a great feeling to contribute in my own little way to make a name for India globally.”
The award, presented last month, is given to those who have made India shine. A minister from Karnataka, a leading surgeon of Indian origin, and a Hollywood director/producer were also among those who were conferred the award for their contributions globally.
Bagging an award or achieving recognition is not new for Desai, who this year made it for the second time to the Limca Book of Records for winning top recognition for sustainable practices in the textile industry in India. Desai says, “We have to take care of nature. Moreover, nature has its own unique way of giving back.”
Under his leadership and guidance, Desai's company Zenitex holds the record of achieving a hat-trick of bagging the 'National Energy Conservation' award, given by the Ministry of Power, Government of India. The award recognises innovations and achievements for efficient utilisation and conservation of energy.
Desai has also won for Zenitex the 'Best Industries of Gujarat' award for three consecutive years from the state government. He was also conferred with an honorary doctorate degree by the UK-based World Records University for achieving highest awards in the field of environment protection and energy conservation. He is the youngest to get this prestigious degree.
For Desai, growth means a 360-degree sustainable growth, which includes taking care of nature. According to him, “The need of go green initiative becomes significant if we want to give our next generation a better tomorrow.” (RKS)
