Deepak Bista of Nepal wins Pride of Australia Fair Go Medal 2010!

Deepak Bista, originally of Pyuthan, Nepal but currently a permanent resident of Australia has won the Pride of Australia Fair Go Medal 2010. The Fair Go Medal is awarded to "an Australian permanent resident or citizen, born overseas, who has enriched Australia through their honesty, hard work and willingness to embrace their new home".

Bista was awarded for his role in the Nepali community and helping fellow Nepalis settle in South Australia, whilst still keeping Nepali culture alive. Although Bista has been living in Australia for nearly 25 years, he has not yet applied for Australian citizenship with an aim to return back and serve Nepal one day.

Good on you. We are proud of you mate! Well done!!
