Ary Sarkar is an entrepreneurial business leader with extensive experience as a host and event organizer. As a respected member of the Indian community Ary Sarkar co-hosted the glamorous Mr. and Mrs. India West Coast 2001 competition held in Fremont, California on March 18, 2001.
This competition is significant because it provides South Asians with the opportunity to display and enhance their talents, the image of the South Asian community, and their self-esteem. Indian couples are selected based on their wealth of talent, wisdom, and enthusiasm for involvement in the Indian community. The selection process is highly competitive for the winners because judges also score the couples on their ability to work as a team.
The evening of the Mr. and Mrs. India West Coast 2001 competition began with all 32 semi-finalists introducing themselves to the audience and dancing in the opening number of the show. The main pageant of the evening started with the traditional segment where participants had to show off their best strut on the catwalk. Shortly after, the audience was entertained by singing, dancing, and acting during the talent segment of the competition. The San Francisco 49ers then performed a hip-hop dance routine prior to the awards ceremony for the pageant’s sponsors. As an advocate of the Mr. and Mrs. India West Coast 2001 competition, Ary Sarkar, the then President of IG2000, decided to sponsor the pageant winners. The winning contestants would each receive a brand new IG2000 computer. Ary Sarkar was therefore presented with a plaque in appreciation for his sponsorship.
Not too long after the Mr. and Mrs. India West Coast 2001 Competition, Ary Sarkar founded the Global Indian Awards (about) in 2003. The Global Indian Awards recognizes individuals of Indian descent who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in the areas of science, commerce, and the arts.
Based off the establishment of the Global Indian Awards and his role in the Mr. and Mrs. India West Coast 2001 competition, Ary Sarkar is proud to serve as one of San-Francisco Bay’s most influential and supportive leaders in the Indian community.
