November 01: “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country,” as aptly said by John F. Kennedy in his inaugural address applies to every person in any country. This is what Mr. Suresh Lakhani embodies wholeheartedly and tries to do as much as he can for the good of the nation. Mr. Suresh Lakhani affectionately called “Bhojpara” after his village’s name is a self-made entrepreneur and philanthropist who have built a successful global business – “Maruti Impex” from scratch. Maruti Impex is one of the largest companies in the world in cut and polished diamonds. He started his business when most youngsters are about to finish high school, at a youthful age of 16. His relentless hard-work from a very young age has launched the company into success.
What does “Samajik Utsav ke Madhyam Rashtra Nirman” even mean? It essentially translates to “Building our nation through social and cultural festivals”. Everyone has their own way of contributing to the growth of the nation, Mr. Lakhani has his own. He sees an India in the future where many youngsters have businesses which help India grow.

Among the many social work he does, he also organises a monumental event called “Papa ni Pari” where he is getting 551 fatherless daughters married in a luxurious fashion regardless of their caste, race or creed. Hindu, Muslim, Christian girls are all welcome under the same roof for marriage. The entire process is completed without taking a single rupee from the girl or her parents. Papa ni pari is taking place this year in Bhavnagar, Gujarat on the 6th of Nov, 2022.
