Gurmeet Singh Brar’s family is affluent, involved in the transport business in both the USA and India. He migrated to the USA in 2006 and has since gained recognition and success through his business ventures.
He said, “The Statue of Liberty is our family’s tribute to America, which has given us so much since we migrated there. When we were constructing our home in our village in Moga district, we thought of installing a statue, and the Statue of Liberty immediately came to mind. It will maintain our connection with the US even when we are in Punjab.”
Manjit Singh Gill mentioned that crafting a replica of the Statue of Liberty was a daunting task, as he wanted to ensure an accurate resemblance and had to do extensive research for it.
