June 19, 2007
My dear Mr. Parigi, Hearty Congratulations! We are delighted and rejoice at the news that your mother, Mrs. Subhadra Krishna Rau Parigi’s book has won the award for “Best Vegetarian Cookbook in the world” at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2006 held in Beijing, China.
The acclaim and recognition she has won, is surely well-deserved, and we share your pride and joy at this great distinction. Yes, it is a proud moment for your family and we are happy for you. We feel certain this cookbook will be a must for almost every Indian both in India and abroad, as well as “vegetarians” all over the globe…
“India” as a nation, must be proud of this unique accomplishment.
With Best Wishes
