    Probably the most deserved person in the "Padma Shree" awardees list is Dr.BR Shetty. His meritorious, relentless and selfless service to the society has won him the much deserved laurels now. He has followed with letter and spirit the teachings of Sri Bhagavadgeetha –“Karmanye Vaadhikaa Raasthe, Ma Faleshu Kadaachana:”. He has been rendering service to the humanity without expecting any reward in return and he never bothered about caste, creed , religion or language while extending a helping hand. He has made “service to the society” as his profession. I feel very proud on being conferred “Padma Shree” on Dr Shetty. I offer hearty congratulations to Dr Shetty and family.

Shetty being chosen to receive the most prestigious honour in the form of Padmashree Award from Govt. of India. Who else richly deserves this prestigious award than Mr. B.R. Shetty?. It is a great honour and pride for every Indian living in UAE and especially to us Kannadigas. Mr. Shetty, a man with realistic vision, hard work, simple living, terrific entrepreneurship, wonderful P.R, down to earth humbleness, positive attitude, ever smiling nature, has been a role model for many young and old people living here in UAE and in India. He has been a source of inspiration to many in all walks of life. What inspires others is, his strong commitment to his family, employees, friends, colleagues, community both national and international at large. He has been a pillar of strength to all the communities living here in UAE with his selfless community service, active participation, contribution both with his wisdom as well by charity, guidance and courage, simplicity and humbleness, and his highest respect for human race and the law of the land. His contribution to the society at large and various communities both in UAE and in India has been the highlight of his life. His un-parrell success also has been a cumulative factor of the valuable support and contributions from his family, Dr. Chandra Shetty, his wonderful wife, lovely children, Neema, Reema, Binay and Seema. Our hearty congratulations to all of them. May God Bless him and his family with good health, happiness, peace of mind, long life good luck, and prosperity. We wish him all the very best and look forward for many more both national and international prestigious awards to be confirmed on him. Herman Lewis and Family Entire TEAM of RADIO SPICE 105.4 FM
