In life you come across various inspirational individuals. H.E. Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa is one such individual. I had the chance to interact with her on various occasions during her tenure in Qatar. She was a source of support and was always available to interact on aspects of mutual interest. She has encouraged me in various activities related to the youth. She has been the patron of HOPE Qatar during her tenure in this country. Her personal support and involvement during my doctoral research about Non Resident Indians (NRIs) has helped me immensely in formulating my recommendations which have been presented to the Indian Government.
