On a recent visit to the hinterlands in the south, Nitin Paranjpe, CEO of Hindustan Unilever (HUL), was surprised to spot a packet of Comfort fabric conditioner in a home in one of the hamlets. Fearing that the consumer may have mistaken fabric conditioner for hair conditioner, the head of Indias largest consumer products company set out to make discreet enquiries. The lady of the household assured HUL marketers that her purchase was no accident - she revealed that she loved the fragrance and softness of fabric after rinsing it with the conditioner. Such consumer behavior opened Hindustan Unilevers eyes to the kind of choices the countries consumers are making. Biocon founder, Dr. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw is well aware of the growth the country is witnessing. She believes that development can still be on a faster track if proper attention is paid on nutritious food, quality education affordable health care and sustainable employment. S. Parthasarathy, an alumnus of IIT- Madras is living his role of a guiding star to the IT sector. He has pioneered in offering information technology solution in form of a perfect fit for small and medium businesses, providing the entrepreneur better visibility in to the business & helping him in making decisions to stay on top of his business. N.R. Narayan Murthy, the famous son of a school teacher, built and led countrys second largest software export company, Infosys for 33 years & earned it the pride of being the most respected company of the country, recently recalled his journey at Infosys which he started with his six friends in 1983. His life story should be a confidence booster to every average person that he or she can make at least a small difference in this world. Murthy, an M.Tech from IIT-Kanpur, with his $ 6 billion IT enterprise has given India strong wings. Harish Hande, a pass out from IIT- Kharagpur is a renewable energy entrepreneur with extensive grassroots experience in meeting the energy requirements of rural households. His experience includes a large number of health, education and water related projects; over 500 small rural and urban health clinics, over 1000 rural and semi-urban schools and over 1500 irrigation and drinking water systems. There is no stopping for those who aspire high. A 17-year-old schoolboy from Noida has achieved a rare double, after being the youngest Indian to scale Mount Everest; he has ascended its neighboring peak Mt Lhotse. Arjun Vajpayee, a class 12 student of Ryan International school in Noida, reached atop the 8,516 metre Mt Lhotse, worlds fourth highest peak on 21 May 2011. Arjun became the youngest Indian to climb the worlds highest summit, the 8,848 metre high Mt Everest, at the age of 16.
