If your life was to be turned into a movie who would you like to play your part?
I would like Shahrukh Khan to play my part. His wit and charm are unparalleled. Also, he has a great business sense which makes him the perfect actor to play my role.
Luck or Hard Work, What do you think weighs more in defining a successful Person?
Although I believe that luck might play some role in individual’s success. But I am sure that hard work definitely does. Luck might fail, hard work doesn’t because the least that can happen to you when you work hard is that you get to learn … which is the most important part.
One best decision you ever made.
The best decision I made was to trust my instincts and choose the path of entrepreneurship. I couldn’t have taken a better decision and had it any other way.
A strategy that you always use to take your decisions in Personal or Professional life?
Collaborative and inclusive brainstorming always works for me. For all personal matters, my brother and I along with our family sit together and come to a consensus. Similarly, for Professional decisions, I have a strong team I can bank upon them completely. They have been a pillar to the organization and also have come up with some great ideas while thinking through for our company.
Whose advise you seek when in dilemma?
I seek advice from my brother both personally and professionally. He always makes my decision-making process simpler. And how can I not mention about my beautiful wife, Pihu. She has been a strong hold in my life for more than 15 years!
What has been your biggest achievement?
My Biggest achievement has been the day I made my parents proud, first on my graduation day and then building a company that has sustained some really tough roads and become a success story today.
One thing that you want to change in yourself.
I want to start spending more time with my family, because eventually, family is my pillar and strength.
