SRK Honors Dalai Lama with Santokbaa Award

Surat: Shree Ramkrishna founder and Chairman Govind Dholakia recently presented the “Santokbaa” award to the Dalai Lama during the spiritual leader’s visit to the company’s Surat manufacturing facility.

The award, which is named in honor of Dholakia’s mother, is given to those who have “served society with compassion, truth, dedication and selflessness.” It was presented by O P Kohli, the governor of Gujarat.

In addition, the Dali Lama was given a check for R2.5 million ($39,535) and a diamond-studded trophy. During his two-and-a-half day tour to Surat, the Dalai Lama also met with students and other Tibetans at a seminar organized by the SRK Foundation.
