I’m from India, where almost everyone loves cricket.
Millions gather around to watch the beloved Men in Blue with their friends and families.
It’s a time for passion, for pride, friendly rivalry, and celebration.
But it’s also an opportunity to bond with other cricketing nations.
This is why I love the sport. It’s borderless. It removes barriers, encourages teamwork, and inspires.
With every passing season, we truly see better bonds, stronger friendships and a shared spirit grow between our nation and others.
As an Indian-Australian, camaraderie between countries is extremely important to me and I advocate for it every day.
I’m an AUSPIRE Australia Day Council Ambassador and Co-Founder and President of non-profit organisation Borderless Gandhi.
I’ve been Vice President of the Australia India Business Council WA Chapter and was a delegate in the historic WA Government Invest and Trade Mission to India in July 2022.
I’m a fierce supporter of workplace diversity – and I employ 36 people across 23 countries – as well as people with disability, Indigenous Australians, women, seniors and young people.
I am CEO of Perth Tech for Social Impact firm illuminance Solutions and last year we won the Western Australian Government’s Office of Multicultural Interests’ Multicultural Business Award for our workplace diversity and multiculturalism.
Earlier, in 2019, we were also named both Business Migrant of the Year and Western Australian Business News – Rising Star Award Winner for Diversity.
These are just some of the reasons I was selected to be an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Champion.
And I am so humbled for the opportunity.
