Two pieces of advice from my father have remained the guiding force of my journey. His first was to keep trying till one succeeded, but never at the cost of principles. The second was to be empathetic to the cause of the underprivileged.

My father started a postgraduate college for girls in Rajasthan that has resulted in tremendous empowerment of women in the state. His vision inspired me and the family to set up the Vedanta Foundation.

Today, we at Vedanta continue to make a difference to the lives of over three million people through our numerous community development programmes that include childcare, health, education, skill development, and women empowerment. The greater good of the community and the fact that we can be partners in change is what drives me.
