Award Reason

I feel as if I have been given a present from Santa Claus although I am no longer a child and the Santa Claus is giving me the present by mistake. Caught in the rush of daily routine, I had forgotten that I had even submitted my work. So I fell off from my chair when I was informed that I was to be awarded with a prize. I was able to complete this work only with the cooperation of my wonderful staff. The award will be my expression of gratitude to them; it will also encourage me in my future endeavors. Thank you very much.
