Obviously delighted to see a packed room with Gujrati community members, Consul General of India in New York, Ambassador Riva Ganguly Das said, “You are the first State to celebrate Sthapana Divas at the Consulate” and added “Somebody suggested that India is a large country with so many States and each State should celebrate its day in the Consulate. I said the idea was good and readily agreed”. Incidentally, the suggestion was given by The Indian Panorama Chief Editor Prof. Indrajit S Saluja.
