Speaking at the event, Justice M.M.Sundresh said, this grand occasion is not just to admire the outstanding lives of Dr.N.Mahalingam and Prof.Dr.Karad but to take their lives as lessons to learn and live by.

He said Dr.N.Mahalingam and Dr.Karad are Great minds who exhibited the ability to think beyond their own successes and paved way for transformation, and wished that more such personalities like them should emerge from the youths of this region.

Accepting the award, Dr.Vishwanath Karad said, “He (Dr.N.Mahalingam) was a divine soul and only for bowing down and getting his blessings I came here, and not to advise anybody”.

At the occasion he said that Swami Vivekananda had strong believe in India that it will emerge as a global leader that will show the pathway to peace and harmony to other nations, and he underlined that such a moment has come now and it is the duty of us all to make India a Vishwaguru, so that this whole world which is essentially one family will benefit.
