Shamsheer Vayalil Parambath, one of the youngest winners of the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman, India’s highest award recognising achievements of overseas Indians, says he has big plans for expansion of his healthcare business and India is on top of his list. “I feel highly privileged and honoured to receive this prestigious award. I am very grateful to the people who have given me so much love, appreciation and respect,” the founder and managing director of the UAE-based LLH Healthcare Group told Indian media. Parambath received the award in this year’s Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, the annual gathering of the Indian diaspora that concluded on Jan 9. He said awards and recognition were materialistic, “they make one feel good but for me the greater feeling of satisfaction is to see general people benefiting from our group’s efforts.
To see people leading a healthy and better life through our efforts is priceless,” he said. “I have always aspired to provide the best healthcare to the world that would enhance the prestige of our nation across the globe and so I thought the UAE could be the best platform for the beginning.” Parambath said India was very much on his list of investment destinations. “We already have one hospital and pharmacies in the country and very soon we will have much more and diversified presence in the country,” he said.
