C. Devarajan

Service to humanity is the most important thought I have right now. My father used to say, 'Limit your comforts and be a role model.' Through our group of institutions, we are trying to achieve inclusive growth and also create development for those associated with our work. What we aspire for is that our organisation lives on beyond hundred years.
