About Our Chief Guest
Mr. Mohan Jashanmal came to the UAE from India in 1964. He was among a contingent that came to the UAE before it was the prosperous oil-rich nation as it now is. There was no water or electricity. Anyone can come when prosperity is going on but just imagine how it would be to live here when there was no water or electricity. When he was honored by Shaik Nahayan same time a year back Mr.Jashanmal had said "India is like my mother, but I have grown up here, earned my livelihood here, so this is like my father, and I have the greatest respect for my mother and father," he says.
Today the businessman is the patriarch of one of the most prominent Indian families in the country. It is a tale of hard-earned success, but one that Mr Jashanmal says is a sign of the UAE's tolerance. Mr Jashanmal said he was grateful that the UAE had given him "the opportunity to serve the country".
He is one among very few expatriates to be granted permanent residency in the UAE. An Indian at heart, he wears his UAE identity bridging both cultures with poise and dignity. His family opened their first shop in Dubai in 1956. Over fifty five years now he has played multiple roles selflessly for the benefit of the expatriates. A few of the roles are spokesperson for the Indian diaspora, founder of India Club in Abu Dhabi and chairperson of the Indian Business Group.
The Indian community in the UAE and the Indian Government always turn to him to recommend names for the country's prestigious award - the Pravasi Bhartiya Samman - that is presented to Non Resident Indians (NRIs) all over the world. In the year 2011 without consulting him he was given the prestigious award.
