Qimpro Platinum and Gold Standards – Each winner is a story of selfless service and commitment to quality

How would you react if you saw the following awarded for their commitment and leadership towards improving the quality of life:

  • A committed soul who quit his job to start a university for tribal and has built it into the world’s largest such institution for tribals
  • A doctor who could not see the pain of the hundreds of terminal cancer patients whom he had to send back home and will set up a hospice to help such patients die with no pain and more peace
  • A business leader of an Indian business group which has deep roots in business that change lives of customers and employees, a business that invests in education and is a pillar of trust

The leaders mentioned above are Dr Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS (Kalinga Institute), Dr L J de Souza, Managing Trustee, The Shanti Avedna Sadan, and Mr Adi Godrej, Chairman, Godrej Group, winners respectively of the Qimpro Platinum Standard 2011 for Education, Healthcare, and Business.

Qimpro Gold Standard for 2011 was awarded to Prof M S Pillai, Founder Director, Sadhana Institute of Management & Leadership and Prof Aditya Shastri, Vice-Chancellor, Banasthali University in the Education category; to Mr Prasanna Hota, Director Emeritus, NIPI-UNOPS in the Healthcare category and Mr Keki Mistry, CEO, HDFC in the business category.

Each of these men are a story of lifelong commitment to improving the quality of life.

Central to the awards function was the quiet and selfless work of Qimpro Foundation. One of the winners commented, in lighter vein perhaps, that this award is more valuable since it was won without any lobbying. Each winner was proud and did not hesitate to say so. Another winner said today he did not feel alone in his efforts and had found a new family of people who are keen and committed to making a difference.

If this cannot move people like me and some of you who are waiting for everything to be in place to make our contribution to society, then nothing will.
