    PRID Sushil Gupta is my friend of last 41 years and as members of Delhi Midwest Club, we had worked on many projects. We were all excited with his nomination as RI President for 2020-21. Unfortunately his health became an issue and he graciously stepped aside. We all wish him well. God bless him and his family.

    I had the good fortune of working with PRID Sushil Gupta in the Gift of Life project which takes care of surgery of children suffering from congenital heart disease. Over the years he has given lot of his time, energy and resources for successful heart surgery of hundreds of children from all over the country as well as from Africa and other developing nations. He deserves this award.

    Hearty congratulations to PRID Sushil Gupta on this well-deserved Rotary Award of Honor. I will always remember his friendship, interactions and support to me over the past three decades ever since the time I joined Rotary as its regional advisor (Asia) for PolioPlus (1988-96). We worked together to make India polio-free. Thanks to Sushil and PRIP Kalyan Banerjee, I visited Pakistan (thrice) and Nigeria (once) to strengthen Rotary’s support to polio eradication activities. Thank you Sushil for nominating me for the RI International Service Award for a Polio Free World (2014).
