His media presence and leadership as a student
welfare officer and member of the Federation of Indian Students played a
vital role in addressing these tragic problems on the streets of Melbourne
and created positive steps to move forward .
He challenged all Victorianís to think about what
really defines a society. Is it Race or colour of your skin?
As a leader in the Indian student community in
Melbourne and as an outstanding young role model, he contributed in a
significant way to create peace, helped heal the damage, and made steps to
ensure something like this would never happen again.
He helped build on the wonderful multi-cultural
city we enjoy today.
