It was an occasion of great honour and privilege when Shri Nanik Rupani was requested to present a life-size portrait of the late Shri Rajiv Gandhi to adorn the Central Hall of the parliament of India. Addressing the function, on behalf of the Priyadarshni Academy, Shri Rupani expressed his deepest gratitude for being accorded this honour.

The Priyadarshni Academy has always held the late Shri Rajiv Gandhi in great esteem. In recognition of his invaluable contribution to National Integration,

the Academy had decided to present its National Integration Award of Rs.1 lakh once in 3 years, as the Rajiv Gandhi Memorial Award for National Integration. It, therefore is fitting that the Priyadarshni Academy was offered the privilege of presenting his portrait to the Parliament of India.
