A Guru is an individual who plays the role of a mentor who nurtures their Shishya and helps them achieve their dream. We are proud to have announced these awards that honour the guardians of this most sacred tradition.”
Speaking on the initiative, Ashutosh, Managing Editor, IBN7, said, “IBN7 Guru Shishya Awards are aimed at recognising, celebrating and honoring the Guru-Shishya combination of extraordinary achievers who have made significant contribution in their respective fields. What makes this initiative unique is the fact that this is the first time that a deserving duo will be awarded for their contribution, rather than an individual.”
