Piscataway, NJ, May 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- BeamaLife sponsored the literature category, for which Ann Cherian was chosen over two other nominees for her debut novel A Good Indian Wife, published by W.W. Norton & Co. 2009. The decision to participate in the SAEA this year as a category sponsor of what is becoming a highly regarded event among the South Asian community here and abroad, was an important but also natural choice, says BeamaLife’s CEO and founder Neil Jesani, a native of the western Indian state of Gujrat.
“Participating in this important event as a category sponsor gave our company, our employees and our customers a collective, front-row opportunity to fully recognize the talent of the South Asian community here in the U.S.,” said Jesani. “We felt it was important to get involved in the SAEA because we have always strived to recognize excellence here at BeamaLife, and this gave us a unique and rewarding opportunity to be a part of the process of recognizing excellence among South Asians, something that is not done all that often enough.”
Jesani said BeamaLife will continue to sponsor the literature category for the SAEA.
“Literature represents a very important piece of the fabric of our society and it makes us humans even more human,” said Jesani.
