KERALA CENTER ANNUAL AWARDS & DINNER- 2009

The Indian American Kerala Cultural and Civic Center (www.thekeralacenter.net) will honor seven Indian American Malayalees for their outstanding achievements in their field of specialization or for their service to the society. The awardees will be honored at Kerala Center's annual banquet on Saturday, November 14th at 6.00 p.m. at the Kerala Center, 1824 Fairfax St., Elmont, NY 11003.


The chief guest is Ambassador Manjeev Singh Puri, Deputy Permanent Representative of India to the UN.


The keynote address will be delivered by Prof. T.V. Paul, James McGill Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science and Director of Center for International Peace and Security Studies at McGill University, Montreal, Canada.
Prof. Paul will speak on the topic "Is India’s Peaceful Rise Possible?" According to Prof. Paul, the rise of India as a great power along with China is expected to take place before the middle of this century. As its power capabilities especially in the military and economic arenas increase, India is expected to claim a stake in the global power hierarchy. Will this claim be peaceful or violent?

An entertainment will follow after the award ceremony. Tickets for banquet can be reserved by contacting Kerala Center at 516-358-2000 or e-mail at thekeralacenter@yahoo.com.
