RED FM BUSINESS BRILLIANCE AWARDS 2022 brought to the fore stories of unsung heroes from the business community. Dilip Patro was once such hero who was awarded ‘EXCELLENCE IN HUMANITARIAN SERVICE’ under CSR category in the Awards ceremony that was held in Vishakapatnam earlier this month.
While he was on his way to America in pursuit of a dream to be successful software professional, Dilip Patro met with an accident which resulted in a serious spinal injury that left him a quadriplegic – paralyzed waist below. But, Dilip didn’t let this tragedy quench his spirit. He started a Non- Profit organization ‘The Ability People’ (TAP) in 2007 which aimed to provide rehabilitation for crash survivors in and around Visakhapatnam.
Ever since, TAP has been rendering services to people with spinal cord injuries and aspires to create a measurable and sustainable impact in the lives of PwDs (persons with disabilities) from under privileged communities.
B Surendar, COO and Director RED FM Network says “ As a responsible and credible media brand we at Red FM felt that we need to recognize the efforts of heroes from the business community across key cities who have helped to put the country’s economy back on track after the severe impact of the covid pandemic . We had started with the state of Karnataka and are now organizing this IPR event in the key cities of AP-Telengana region . We are overwhelmed by the response we have received so far from the business community and are thankful to eminent personalities who had presided over these events . We hope to take this across other key states in the country very soon.”
VV Lakshmi Narayana, IPS , Former Joint Director, CBI on RED FM BBA,“During the pandemic, many industrialists thought that the future of their businesses will be dark and sacked their employees to cut the costs. But there were few entrepreneurs who came forward and assured safety to their employees and their families. RED FM has done a great job in bringing them into the limelight and awarding them with Business Brilliance Awards. On behalf of the people and your employees, I congratulate the winners. Every country gets an opportunity to have massive growth with the help of youth. It is called “Demographic Dividend”. India got this advantage in 1980 and will stay till 2040. We need to utilize this opportunity well with the experience we got till now and guide the youth of the nation. I congratulate RED FM for taking this initiative of bringing these entrepreneurs to limelight and introducing them to the society for the betterment of country.”
