Celebrating Achievements of South Asians Worldwide with Commemorative Coffee Table Book

By A Correspondent

Leading South Asian entertainment and lifestyle media company, ANOKHI MEDIA to release a special first-of-its kind commemorative coffee table book in Canada, celebrating the accomplishments of South Asians across the world.  

This limited edition collector’s book entitled The ANOKHI List 2015 will celebrate the regional, national and international success stories of some of today's most prolific South Asian personalities. The book will be available for one night only, as a gift for all ticket holders of ANOKHI MEDIA’s 12th Anniversary Event’s dinner-show.

“This coffee table book is a celebration of the community that has supported us for the past 12 years,” says Raj Girn, President & CEO of ANOKHI MEDIA. “Much of what we experience gets forgotten and memories fade as generations pass on. THE ANOKHI LIST 2015 book is ANOKHI MEDIA’s homage to the South Asian community; a time capsule of sorts, to leave an indelible mark on the map of history that these stories happened and they mattered and here’s why.”  

Taking place at the historical Fairmont Royal York Hotel located in downtown Toronto on Saturday, March 28, 2015, the 12th Anniversary Event will celebrate some of the world’s most renowned names in entertainment, fashion, media, entrepreneurship and sports. Past honorees that have attended the event have included: Freida Pinto, Priyanka Chopra and Jay Sean but to name a few.  

“What makes this year’s event even more exciting than before is that many of the talent being featured in the book will be flying in from the United States, the United Kingdom and India, to support its launch that evening,” adds Girn.  “Sharing that experience with our guests is what will truly make it an unforgettable evening.”   

The evening will begin with a red carpet celebrity reception, followed by a 3-course dinner, after which a two and a half hours awards, fashion and entertainment show will be presented to the dinner guests (open to the public), ending with an industry gala after party (by invite only). Over 800 guests attend this star-studded, glamorous event each year, and this year will be no different. 

This year’s valued sponsors include:

-       Returning platinum sponsor, Johnnie Walker, which has supported the event now into its fifth consecutive year, and by whom the evening’s entertainment is “brought to you by”. 

-       First-time gold sponsor, L'Oréal Paris will be presenting the celebrity designer fashion show (renowned designer to be revealed next week). "We are thrilled to partner for the first time with ANOKHI MEDIA on this exclusive event to celebrate the success of South Asians in Canada,” said Hugo Thibault, Communications and Digital Director of L'Oréal Paris Canada. 

-        And first-time silver sponsor, Cargojet, Canada’s cargo airline.
