Glory of India Award to Atlanta attorney Neera Bahl
Bahl's experience is well-rounded. She received her B.S. in Chemistry & Biology from D.S. College, India, B.Ed. in Psychology from D.A.V. College, and M.A. in English from Punjab University, and in the States served at the University of Alabama and at Emory University's Department of Dermatology before taking up her career in law.
This year's well-organized award ceremony took place on January 11, 2012, in La Meridian Hotel in New Delhi on the occasion of Global Friendship Day. It was scheduled close to Pravasi Bhartiya Divas since many NRIs who had gone to India for the PBD could stay an extra day to attend this as well.
Bahl began her legal career in 2005 and now has her own independent practice. Earlier, she interned at the Jimmy Carter Center (Human Rights Division), worked as a Constituent Representative for U.S. Rep. Denise Majette (GA Dem.), and served as law clerk. She received her J.D. from John Marshall Law School, where she is now Alumni Board Chair.
Her awards and memberships are numerous, and her volunteer activities varied, including serving with the Truancy Intervention Project, Raksha, the Sindhi Sabha Children's School, and the India Cultural and Religious Center, where she was chairperson as well as an active volunteer for the last twenty years.
