Eminence Awards !


Last week saw us setting a new milestone for the development of youth in Kashmir. A major event, ‘Eminence Awards’, was hosted at SKICC by a team of enthusiastic youngsters led by Aqif Majid, Labib Wani and Numaan Iqbal, under the banner of ‘The Blue Canvas’. This was possibly the first time in the valley that a formal function was organised for recognising our heroes, talent and corporate successes. The event turned out to be quite a big hit with a jam packed audience despite multiple security checks and parking restrictions. The function presided by the Vice Chancellor, Kashmir University, Director SKICC and Director Tourism primarily to felicitate Kashmir’s outstanding talent was accompanied with live performances by University students and budding artists.

The function spanned a diverse range of specialisations from acting, painting and photography to adventure sports, businesses and startups. The list of nominees and the videos depicting their achievements were remarkable. Seeing the response, one wonders at the enthusiasm and passion demonstrated by our youth. It confirms my strong belief that our talent pool and skills are at par with the best. The awardees included a specially abled photographer, painter, standup comedian, Women entrepreneurs, Innovative business houses and promoters of ethnic culture.

Given the background of instability in the recent past, it is high time that our youth come forward to demonstrate their abilities and aim for attaining greater heights. It is events of this nature that establish a platform not only for showcasing our talent, but boosting the morale of those who are already struggling to establish themselves in their own fields. Besides recognising the achievers, Award functions inculcate a competitive spirit amongst us. Such events also establish the benchmarks and set a target for those aiming to make it big in their respective domains.
