American entrepreneur, animator and film producer, Walt Disney believed that “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” In a similar fashion, every person featured in our April special cover featuring top male achievers have overcome many challenges to achieve success.
While all the stories of these outstanding people are inspiring, the stories of two of the senior-most men on our cover are especially compelling. Ajit Singh Gill (89) and Jamshed K Fozdar (90) are icons – one is an Olympian who represented the country in hockey while the other is a respected scientist and theologist who was recognised, early in undergraduate days, by he great scientist Albert Einstein. The two men proved that success can be achieved with discipline, training and upholding of faith.These are men who are now icons for our youth with qualities that all of us must emulate.
A common thread of a pioneering, risk-taking spirit runs through the DNA of these successful entrepreneurs who have cast aside the safety of corporate jobs to set up ventures and mould them into thriving businesses. C Mano runs an equestrian services company, Dinesh Verma has set up a physiotherapy business, Jayesh Parekh is a much-sought after angel investor with special interest in social enterprises, Maneesh Sharma offers high quality relocation services, Ravinder Pal’s company is among the first to provide hospitality technology services and Sanjay Rekhi raises the bar as successful technology professional who also runs top restaurants and lounges. Two members are fully hands on in community service – S Devendran, an ex-military man, heads the Sree Narayana Mission Home for the elderly while Tushar Doshi focuses on seva through the Singapore Gujarati Society.
