273. An inspiring tale of two men

February 10, 2013

I have been an admirer of Raghuraman Rajan for over two years now. I have admired him for two reasons – his achievements at a very young age are outstanding and his demeanor is down to earth, something I noticed in my brief meeting with him at the India Summit I attended at the Booth School of Business in Chicago last year. I predict that he will go onto win the Nobel Prize for Economics someday.

Last week, the Tata Group announced an interesting appointment of a newly created position to be filled by a name not heard of in Public Relations circles. That of Mukund Rajan who will be the first Chief Ethics Officer, the Group Spokesperson, the global Brand Custodian and the Chairman of Tata Council for Community Initiatives (TCCI encompasses all CSR activities of the Group). A very high profile position indeed with an oversight on Public Relations making him arguably the most powerful corporate communicator in the country.

Well, these are two of the four children of an Indian Police Service officer who did well for themselves academically. They are an inspiration for several young middle-class Indians. Reading the two links in this blog that are highlighted gives a better glimpse into their lives.
