Hiyoshi Award 2014 – Comments and feelings from Environmental winner


Hiyoshi Environmental Award 2014 – Comments from Winners


Feelings and comments regarding Hiyoshi Environmental award from Award Winner 2014:

Over the years, I am actively engaged in environment research. I received a mail from Hiyoshi Corporation Japan for Outstanding contribution to applied study for Environmental Conservation and Protection four years before (2010). Before I applied I gone through the website and I understood it is a very prestigious award because they selected awardees from all over the India.

I applied at that time for Hiyoshi young leaf award with 40-50 research publications and I have been selected for the award. It initiates me to do research further in the environmental field. After 4 years I applied once again for the Environmental award with increasing my research publications (127) by three fold. Once again I have been honored by Hiyoshi Corporation Japan. I have been very much thankful to them. This once again pushes me to work hard in this research area.

வணக்கம். I am very happy to see you all and glad to invite you all to this event “Talk your way to Japan”.

Mr. Suzuki, Chairman of Hiyoshi Corporation, and Mr. M.R.Ranganathan, Chairman of ABK AOTS DOSOKAI TAMILNADU CENTRE, Chennai, have started this speech contest event as Joint program of 20th Anniversary of ABK AOTS in 1995. We are now celebrating 20th anniversary of the speech contest.

Every year, four students from India who won the air ticket have been visiting Japan for two weeks for environmental education and cultural exchange. So far, Hiyoshi have received more than 70 students from India as speech contest winners.


India is the second most populated rich country and becoming economically powerful country in the world. According to the survey report, India is expected to become the 3rd strongest economic country in the world, next to the United States and China in 2025, if no abnormal happening such as natural disaster etc.

If India becomes the 3rd position in economy, everyone’s life becomes promised wealth, abundance and happy, however, at the same time, there is strong sense of responsibility and duty to conserve the environment from pollution.

So far I have visited India for more than 10 times, since 1980s, I feel the environment in India getting worsen due to the industrialization and keep focusing only on economic growth.

I am happy to see all young people coming here to talk about environment. I feel Indian environment in the future will become bright and clean with your thoughts and action.


If we see our history in Japan, there was environmental pollution due to the high economic growth in 1960s-1980s. We had spent huge amount of money and time to restore our environment back in good condition.

Based on our experience, I strongly recommend you to keep paying serious attention to environmental conservation along with Economic growth.

The MUNASINGHE TUNNEL introduced by an Indian says that during high economic growth of a country, the country has been heavily polluted due to the industrialization and disinterest of environmental care. The MUNASINGHE TUNNEL which help country to understand the importance of the environment. X-axis represent economic development and Y-axis for environmental degradation (pollution). If country moves towards the high economic development, it must face environmental pollution but it can be avoided by understanding and paying serious attention with dedicated action against environmental pollution like tunnel crossing.
