“I am extremely touched to receive this award and would like to congratulate everybody who extended their support to the museum, especially the Punjab government, our trustees, advisors, volunteers, donors, and supporters. It would not have been possible without their cooperation. I will remain grateful to the partition survivors and their families. Each of them welcomed us into their lives and shared their stories with us and donated their closely held memories to the museum,” she stated.
