Congratulations to Dr Pushpa Wood, co-founder and life member of the Wellington Inter-faith Council and Chair of the New Zealand Chapter of the World Council of Religion and Peace, who was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand
Order of Merit on the Queen’s Birthday Honours List announced by the
government on 6 June 6 2016. Here is a quote from Pushpa reported on Indian Newslink: "It is an honour and a privilege to receive this Award. Although my name
is on the list, the honour truly belongs to the whole community and
people who have supported me throughout my life. I am grateful to my
parents who gave me opportunities to dream big, my husband Jack and my
daughter Gayatri for their encouragement and support. I regard myself
very lucky to be awarded for doing something that is very dear to my
heart. This Award recognises the positive contribution that ethnic
people are making in almost every field."
