Rajashree BirlaLifetime Achievement - Philanthropy (Tamil Nadu, India) 2018
RAJASHREE BIRLA – The wife of the late kingpin of Birla Empire, Aditya Kumar Birla and mother of its present-day heir, she has changed none of her intrinsic qualities & values of Humility and Humanity.
Never ever, she has built an ivory tower around herself. Compassion is her creed and she has been working tirelessly to mitigate the sufferings of the destitute and the deprived.She has directed her efforts towards CSR and charity, developing a very large philanthropic organization funded by her family. In 2011, the Government of India honoured her with the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award, for her services to society.
Besides Philanthropy, anther hallmark of her personality is her penchant for ‘Music’ that has resulted in the ‘Sangeet Kala Kendra’ – a premium seat of patronage to Music-virtuosos, today.
In sum, she’s a Bunyan tree of shelter for one and all…!
