What were you doing before you joined Mahindra?

I was studying at Columbia University.

Why did you decide to join Mahindra?

I decided to join Mahindra as I was looking for a dynamic, international company at which I could start my career – and experience that would stretch me both personally and professionally.

What are you doing now?

Currently, I am helping manage business development for Mahindra’s solar business in Africa.

How do you find Mahindra as an employer?

Though any company that employs 150,000+ people is bound to have its bureaucratic hurdles, I have found my colleagues to be bright, team-oriented, and respectful.

What has been your best India experience?

I have greatly enjoyed taking weekends to travel and see more of the country. Travelling through Rajasthan was one of my particular favourites.

What were your favorite projects during your time at M&M?

I have particularly enjoyed setting up our new solar operations in Africa.

Outside of the office, what are your favorite activities in Mumbai?

I enjoy exploring the city through food.
