India’s Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on 20th of October presented nation’s ‘Most Eminent Senior Citizen Award’ to legal luminary, scholar and former Attorney General of India, K. Parasaran at a function at the India International Centre in New Delhi.
Parasaran was honored with the Award on the occasion of the Elder’s Day celebration of Age Care India, an organization working for the welfare of the elderly.
Conveying his appreciation to Parasaran, the Vice President said, “today, at 92 years, Parasaran stands tall among the entire length and breadth of India in terms of knowledge of law, knowledge of Shastras, erudition and ethics and is rightly referred to as a ‘Pitamaha’ of the Indian Bar”.
He said that the Award was a fitting recognition of Parasaran’s exceptional contribution to the field of law and justice as well as his extra ordinary personality.
Known for his erudition, discipline, hard work, honesty and ethics, Parasaran’s legal canvas has been wide. With equal felicity, Parasaran, throughout his distinguished career, had handled a wide array of cases– be they serious constitutional matters or inter-State water disputes”, he added.
