D. Sathish Babu

Opportunities are plenty. What is needed is a positive mind. Obstacles will be there but you can overcome them as long as you don't accept defeats as final. Try, try, and try. You can succeed. Perseverance will see you through. This is how we have grown. Nothing can be achieved without sacrifice. Even small, small sacrifices can give you greater happiness. For instance, when building the business, it becomes inevitable to miss a few family functions and other social occasions.

"Three years ago, people thought RFID is going to be a great revolution. However, it didn't take off the way it was anticipated, especially because the focus was then on retail applications. What we find happening now is that RFID is growing in acceptance in many areas other than retail, by ensuring the visibility of organisations' resources, both human and other assets."
