Slightly away from the topic of finance and business I am dedicating this blog entrt to my father - Ramesh Divekar.
Ramesh Divekar, has been awarded the "Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays" (Class V- Culture) in recognition of his outstanding contribution by His Imperial Excellency the Emperor of Japan .
The Order of the rising sun is the second most prestigious Japanese decoration after the Order of the Chrysanthemum.
