In September 2010, at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2010 in South Africa, I again had the extreme pleasure of sharing a few hearty moments with the President of South Africa, His Excellency,Dr Jacob Zuma.  It was an interesting chat in which he detailed his love for Indian culture and Indian people as they too had been instrumental in the freedom struggle of South Africa.

He has shared similar sentiments when I was a part of the business delegations with some 230 other business leaders that joined the president on the official first ever State visit to India in June 2010.
