February 18th, 2014 was a day to be remembered in the history of IIHMR, Jaipur as Padmashri Dr. Ashok Panagariya, DM, Member of the Board of The IIHMR University, was felicitated at the IIHMR campus on the occasion of being conferred with the Prestigious Civilian Honor, the Padmashri. It was a momentous event for the entire IIHMR fraternity due to reasons more than one. Dr Panagariya’s association with IIHMR is as old as the foundations of the Institution and his active involvement as a member of the Governing board from the year 2006 to year 2012, and now as a Member of the Board of the IIHMR University.
Dr. Panagariya is a name that need little introduction. His achievements are numerous and exemplary. Upon being conferred the Padmashri by the Govt. of India is another feather in the cap. He was felicitated by the director of Dr. S.D. Gupta, who presented him with a small memento as a token of respect and Shri M.L. Mehta who felicitated him in the traditional way by garlanding him and presenting him a shawl. Both, Shri Mehta and Dr. Gupta shared their experiences of their long association with Dr. Ashok Panagariya.
Dr. Panagariya was also requested to share his feelings with the entire gathering and it was indeed a remarkable experience to have heard him for his wonderful words and deep emotions that he expressed. The Institution was greatly privileged to have had his presence.
