On announcement of the Award and communication to Professor Sheth commented, “This Award is both a surprise and an honour. On the one hand, it is a privilege for me to be among the list of nominated people. They are all world class, and on the other hand because the recognition comes from both Indian and global audience, this recognition is a milestone to a journey that is forever. One needs to take a pause once in a while to reflect on what one has achieved, what impact it has had in the world and also to celebrate.”
