We go about our daily lives with an unabashed sense of self-righteousness. We believe we have changed for the better, and evolved with the changing times, yet all it takes is a light scratching on the surface to realise that most of it is all talk and no trousers.
We attend Pride walks, but think 'gay' works just fine as a casual expletive. We'll write long pro-LGBTQ+ 'posts' on social media, but judge metro-sexual men. The list can go on, just like the many excuses we might pose in our defense.
However, there also exists another side to this reality. The side where individuals go out of their way not only to show their solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community, but also follow it up with concrete actions to support and uplift them as a part of the mainstream society.
Headquartered in New Delhi, the company opened its first hotel here in 1988 under the dynamic leadership of Founder Chairman Mr. Lalit Suri, who spearheaded the Group’s unprecedented expansion plans.
Rapid expansion and consolidation of its leadership position continues under the enterprising stewardship of Dr. Jyotsna Suri, who took over as Chairperson & Managing Director in 2006.
