“The municipal council of the city of Wroclaw, Poland, decided to give a place after my father’s name. There could not have been a more fitting blessing on Dushhera than this. A moment of extreme pride for the family, for the Indian community of Wroclaw and India. Jai Hind (sic), ”he captioned the photo.
