Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan makes a historic visit

The delegation was warmly welcomed by the GIACC at a reception and dinner held at the Four Seasons Hotel on April 3, 2009.

At the event, the Chief Justice spoke briefly on the progress and impact the Indian community is having on the American legal system. “It is great to see our young lawyers coming to the United States and pursuing a legal career,” said Balakrishnan. “The [non-resident Indians] are investing and contributing to the growth of India which sustains the close commercial relationship that India and United States have.”

Among the many guests was Deborah Gonzalez, Assistant Director of University of Georgia’s Office of International Public Service and Outreach, who explained that the Chief Justice would be hosting a roundtable lecture on individual rights in India. The lecture came in lieu of the launch of UGA’s India Initiative Program that held a two-day conference prior to the dinner. The newly launched program is designed with a structured approach to engage the university community with a population of new Georgians who have an economic, social, and cultural impact on [Georgia], noted Gonzalez.

Co-sponsored by the IndusBar of Georgia, the evening was hosted with an abundance of southern hospitality and a great ambience mixing two communities with a common purpose. “The level of delegation that [GIACC] is privy to host can find a way to harness mutual potential,” said GIACC President Ritesh Desai, referring to issues such as outsourcing that impact both Georgia and India.
