Indeed this is a recognition for all that Mr Divekar has done in the past 40 years of his working career. He has selflessly worked in building a cultural bridge between India and Japan.

Mr Divekar rightfully deserves this honour.

The other unsung hero is Mrs Shaila Divekar, his wife. She has been the pillar of support in all his endeavours.

Congratulations and salute to Mr Divekar. Pune and India is proud of you !
