You possess over four decades of experience. How has your path to success and what is your success mantra?
My path to success has been a strong commitment and passion for my professional responsibility. A strong follower of values imbibed by my parents since childhood greatly helped me in my journey to success. I always made sure to take on new responsibilities to newer businesses /newer areas generally every 3-5 years in different geographies.
