Leaving A Mark: Women Who Inspire BK Goenka, Manu Kumar Jain
1/5
BK Goenka, Chairman, Welspun Group

“I take a lot of inspiration from Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo. She is an accomplished business leader who describes herself as an ordinary woman born in a conservative and middle-class family. Being a woman and immigrant made it thrice as difficult for Nooyi to reach this position. But her mantra of working twice as hard as her male counterparts has set her apart. Her rise to power has lit up a fire in every aspirant and proves that nothing is impossible if you are determined.”

Shankar Prasad, Founder, Plum

“As a child, I had read about the life and work of Marie Curie, the Polish-French scientist who coined the term radioactivity, and discovered radium. Her list of achievements is long, and so is the list of almost endless adversities that she had to overcome because she was a woman and born into a poor family. I learnt dedication from her. Winning two Nobel prizes, helping out the wounded in World War I, and naming the element she discovered in honour of her country [Polonium] — what a life. She lived and died doing what she loved. She was driven by a sense of achievement and love for scientific discovery, not by fame or money.”
