"Many believe I have gotten this honour because of my designing profession. But the reality is the corporate social responsibility our label has shown, the work we have done over the course of the past 10 years with women in rural villages, that is the reason for this award."

"We're working hard and hoping to grow our capacity building with such women and get more women from more villages on board - providing them with jobs and opportunities to increase their income for a better life ahead," he posted.

Congratulations sir, may you continue making the country proud!
