I am privileged to have known him for almost a decade, however, meeting him always is yet another unparalleled learning experience.
While interacting with the mainstream media after his meeting at the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi on June 28, Mr. Himadrish Suwan said “Mr. Suresh Prabhu Ji is one of India’s most remarkable thinkers and political leaders who recently completed glorious twenty-five years in public service illuminating thousand and millions of lives across the globe. Mr. Suresh Prabhu is currently a Member of the Upper House of the Indian Parliament, Prime Minister of India’s Sherpa to the G-20 and G-7 and much more he is someone who has held more than a dozen portfolios in varied capacities as India’s Union Cabinet Minister. Till, recently, Shri. Suresh Prabhu also served as India’s Minister for Railways, Commerce and Industry, and Civil Aviation. Right from taking the Indian Railways to what he termed a ‘samriddhi success’ to being the Prime Minister’s Sherpa for the G20 and G7, he has been enhancing lives in every sector. On a personal note, he is my personal inspiration and mentor to the CYL family at large. I often refer to his journey as “A life like no other” and therefore, tracing his life in words is a laborious task and a lengthy one, for sure.”
