Zia and Jaidev Mody

September 6, 2017
She was merely 13 and he 14. In their hearts, they knew they were meant to be, though they would not proclaim it. They would pretend to play cricket when the sun had long set, just to be with each other. They would play till 7 or 8 pm, though they would not see where the ball was being thrown. He was the handsome boy next door and she the prettiest girl in the neighbourhood. It was around 1969 when they first ran into each other and simply fell in love. Forty-eight years later, their love story is still being written. Zia and Jaydev Mody — reckoned as a power couple in the corporate world — have been each other’s strongest pillars ever since and their love hasn’t faded a bit. Zia, as we know her today, is one of the country’s finest legal brains, an authority on corporate law, and Jaydev, a business tycoon who runs a casino empire. “We just fell in love and couldn’t stand to be apart,” recalls Zia of the days when the two, in their early teens, had got acquainted in the Mumbai locality where they lived. It was a case of opposites attract, she reckons. “He was terribly handsome, intelligent, very impulsive, intense and very different from my own character, which was cautious, conservative and slightly nervous about things unknown.” Her good looks apart, it was Zia’s insatiable drive to excel at everything that fascinated Jaydev at age 14 and continues to even today. “As a child, she was always determined to be the best in whatever she did — whether it was topping the class or riding as a jockey at the gymkhana.” Even at 60, he says, she is still determined to be the best and doesn’t settle for any less. Among the memories Zia treasures the most is when Jaydev would come to the racecourse early in the morning and ride horses, just to be with her. They would ride every morning until 6.30 before she would go to school. Another, she recalls, is that of Jaydev writing her love letters in his scrawly handwriting — there was no internet or fax in those days — when he was off to Europe for many weeks or when she was travelling. Zia’s inspiration to study law and become a lawyer, of course, came from her father Soli Sorabjee, one of India’s most distinguished jurists and former attorney general. “I never wanted to be anything other than a lawyer. It was certainly my father who provided the inspiration. He was an obvious role model, which led my career choice being an easy decision.” She recalls how her father would often be at the dinner table making calls to his solicitors, talking about legal issues, and discussing with colleagues what the judges said in courts. “It always sounded challenging and exciting,” she says. Talking about her father’s nurturing, Zia recounts some of the key learnings from him as hard work, honesty and the

Hidesign CEO Dilip Kapur traces the journey of his iconic brand that has risen from very humble beginnings. It was the late 1970s when Puducherry-born, Sri Aurobindo Ashram-schooled Dilip Kapur came back to his hometown after studying at Phillips Academy, Andover and Princeton. His return was well-timed. On February 28th, 1968, some 5,000 people from 124 nations and 23 Indian states congregated to inaugurate the future township of Auroville in a solemn ceremony. “We believed Auroville would create a model to change the world. There were people, rebellious and innovative, from all over the world. Puducherry itself was a quiet town, culturally led by Auroville and the Ashram,” says Kapur. In the last 49 years, this quaint little town on the Southern coast of India has certainly made a mark for itself in terms of heritage, travel and hide! Kapur has given Puducherry its most famous shopping address in the form of his internationally-acclaimed luxury brand – Hidesign, which has a current turnover of ₹160-170 crores. Meant for those who want to indulge in genuine leather goods that are sturdy, stylish and almost ageless, Hidesign was established in 1978 with a two-person artisan workshop once Kapur moved to Auroville from the States after completing his PhD. Thereafter, he started experimenting with leather as a hobby. “Friends and friends of friends started buying and selling them in Australia and the US. One day, I received a large order and realized I needed a workshop.” Interestingly, up until then, he had never thought of starting a leather business. But during his stay in the US, to sustain himself during the summer, he applied for a job at a Denver-based leather shop called Poor Richard’s. This nine-month stint resurrected his love for leather that was “somehow in his blood” because of his father whose leather shoe factory burnt down during the Partition. “I had never seen him work with leather. But I loved working with leather at Denver, learning how to hand dye leather, cut it and assemble bags,” says Kapur. Today, Hidesign products are made in three factories in Pondicherry, Ranipet Baddi, and Sikkim. Known for its craftsmanship and innovative design, in India, Hidesign has 81 exclusive stores; it is also present in 160 shop-in-shops and major e-commerce platforms. Internationally, their distribution and franchise stores are spread across 23 countries that include Russia, Sri Lanka, Prague and Kenya; Indonesia and Dubai are in the offing. Since leather is the star of Kapur’s show, he goes to great lengths to procure it from tanneries all over the world like Brazil, the highlands of East Africa, Europe, and New Zealand. From the time, he started working wholeheartedly with leather his curiosity has led him to explore the traditions of vegetable tanning in south India, probably the greatest centre in the world of vegetable tanning traditions. No wonder, he prefers, “Kerala as the climate and educated farmers ensure healthy animals,” and a good quality hide. Apart from the leather, Kapur is equally stringent about the

Before he became the most illustrious man in the Indian advertising industry, Piyush Pandey was busy, playing cricket and tasting tea for TM & MC. The latter activity was part of a friendship pact between him and his dear friend, the cricketer and commentator Arun Lal. “We decided that whenever we work, we will be together no matter where it is. That’s how I joined him as a tea taster in Kolkata,” shares Pandey, who eventually said bye to chai, after a two-year stint. He also gave up cricket after realising that he “wasn’t good enough to play beyond Ranji Trophy.” But he still has deep affection for the gentleman’s game. “For the last 10 years, I have worked on the IPL, Mumbai Indians and World Cup campaigns. Today at my age, I may not be able to play it but cricket is in my blood!” After being bored of tea leaves and the bat-and-ball sport, Pandey entered advertising by chance and a little encouragement from his wingman Arun and his wife Reena. “They both observed that I was very good at writing one liners and asked me to try my hand at it. Since nothing was planned, I decided to give it a shot.” In 1982, Pandey was interviewed by then Ogilvy boss Ranjan Kapur. Since he couldn’t decide which department to put him in, he joined as an account executive. “I was doing well in client servicing. In 1982, with the advent of colour television, a lot of people couldn’t come to terms with writing for the masses. I used to write for clients who wanted ads in Hindi. My bosses Mani Iyer and Suresh Mullick got a whiff of it and put me in writing copy.” His transition to the creative side wasn’t as easy as he makes it sound. Since there was an existing team, the bosses couldn’t afford to bring him in as a senior resource without upsetting the apple cart. So, they created an absolutely new position for him. Pandey became copy chief, Indian languages, as here was an opportunity for him to write Indian content in the Indian context. He went on to write unforgettable tag lines like Chal Meri Luna, Dam Laga Ke Haisha and Mera Wala Cream and give brands like Luna, Fevicol, and Asian Paints a much-needed impetus. Welcome to the world of Piyush Pandey — India’s most decorated ad man; creator of the campaign of the century and writer extraordinaire. Most importantly, a man of humour and humility, and passion and perseverance! His ads are like him — steeped in simplicity. “An ad becomes great when it appeals to people and they approve of it. In the case of Cadbury, the brief was very simple — to enable older people to eat it openly without feeling shy. For Fevicol, it was making people have a role to play with glue and the carpenter. And with Luna, it was about bringing mobility to the Indian masses. Throughout the campaigns, I

Indian Companies Have The Adequate Genetic Makeup For Being Innovative A Vaidheesh, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals’ vice president, South Asia and managing director, India, is a successful senior business leader with over 28 years of diverse experience in the healthcare and FMCG domains. He has a strong track record of leadership development and building leading brands/franchises across various categories and multi-cultural locations in the Asia-Paci c region. At GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals India, which contributes a third of the volume of GlaxoSmithKline’s global sales, Vaidheesh is leading the company for its next stage of growth. GSK India’s UK-based parent is investing £100 million in expanding the Indian arm’s manufacturing capability — it is setting up a green eld factory in Bangalore which will help it double its capacity to manufacture tablets and capsules from 12 billion to 24 billion a year. Says Vaidheesh, “It’s time for India to put together a strategic map to go beyond generic drugs manufacture and play a bigger role in drug discovery and innovation and move up the value chain.” In an interview with Amit Ranjan Rai, he discusses his plans for GSK and how innovation is likely to be the next growth driver for Indian pharma companies. From a Bachelor of Physics and Masters in Marketing Management to a top leadership position at a global pharmaceuticals company, how do you see this journey in your life? What have been the key moments shaping this journey? I have always looked at my future in a bundle of 3 years forward. I have ensured success in every leadership position that was presented to me. I never worried about the future. Werner Erhard significantly helped me change my view of the world. The early stage of my career played a vital role in building my future. Saibal Saha and Supratim Bose were my inspirational leaders from whom I learnt the technical aspect of running the business as well as being a caring human soul before being a leader in a corporation. I am grateful to the almighty for providing me with an opportunity to express myself and be of value to society. What has been your vision and mission for GSK Pharmaceuticals in India? What has been your strategy to achieve this vision? We will make a positive difference to patients and the community by being a preferred, affordable and trusted partner of choice for key stakeholders in preventive and therapeutic healthcare. We will achieve this as “one team”, upholding our GSK values to become the fastest-growing pharma multinational and the most admired company in the industry How do you see GSK CEO, Sir Andrew Whitty’s leadership in making GSK a better organisation and company – one which is transparent, responsible and has high ethical standards? Sir Andrew Whitty is unquestionably the best leader I have ever worked with. I really admired the way he handled a business crisis in the region and converted an adverse situation into a path-breaking new paradigm for the pharma industry. He really walked the talk

Our transformation has been fundamental to our turnaround from the brink of collapse Last fiscal year was a record year for Ashok Leyland in many ways. The commercial vehicles (CV) giant achieved its highest ever sales volumes and turnover, its highest ever market share and operating pro t as also its highest shareholder value. Its turnover grew by a good 39 per cent to Rs 18,822 crore, as against Rs 13,562 crore, a year ago. The sales volume grew by 34 per cent to peak at 1,40,457 units, and the net pro t rose by a remarkable 115 per cent to Rs 722 crore, as against a year ago. The company’s market share in medium and heavy commercial vehicles (M&HCVs) reached an all-time high of 31.3 per cent. Just over two years ago, when the CV industry was grappling with one of its worst recessions, Ashok Leyland was faced with what managing director Vinod K Dasari calls “nearly existential challenges.” The industry demand between FY12 and FY14 had plunged by about 50 per cent. As a result, in FY14, Ashok Leyland’s sales plummeted by 22 per cent (over FY13) to a low of 89,337 units, the turnover dropped to Rs 9,943 crore and the net pro t was a mere Rs 29 crore. The scenario called for radical measures to reverse the fortunes. Says Dasari, “We used this as an opportunity to transform ourselves into an agile player.” The company restructured itself into six businesses, with each responsible for not just its market share but also its EBITDA and working capital. This, says Dasari, drove ef ciency and a greater focus on return on capital employed. Massive programmes were launched to cut costs and reduce working capital requirements. Importantly, the company brought its focus back on its core business of commercial vehicles, chalking out a clear plan to exit from non-core and non-performing businesses. “Our efforts in pruning costs while at the same time investing in new products and network have helped us transform the company. We are now poised to seize the opportunity the market presents in the immediate future,” says Dasari. In an interview with Amit Ranjan Rai, he talks about his transformation drive to turnaround Ashok Leyland and his plans to achieve its vision to be among the top 10 in global trucks and top 5 in global buses. Ashok Leyland has delivered solid performance in FY2015-16 with a 39 per cent growth in revenue. Your earnings have increased to a healthy 11.5 per cent of total revenue and are perhaps the highest ever. What have been the reasons behind this robust performance? What factors — in terms of both your strategy and demand — have contributed to the performance? Which segments have been the key revenue and profit drivers? The Indian commercial vehicle market had a period of continual growth from 1999 to 2008, when it got struck by two back-to-back recessions. The second one between 2012 and 2014 was one of the longest, deepest recessions

CP Gurnani

May 30, 2017
Challenging conventional thinking has been our north star In 2009, when Anand Mahindra acquired the scam-hit Satyam Computer Services — the IT major whose founder B Ramalinga Raju had cooked its books to the tune of $1 billion — he handed over the momentous task of bringing the company back from the dead to CP Gurnani, then heading the international operations at Tech Mahindra. Within a year-and-half, the company that most industry pundits predicted would not survive, now christened Mahindra Satyam, was back on track. In the next several quarters, it reported a ten-fold increase in its year-on-year profits. Gurnani had taken the bull by its horn, turning around the crisis-hit company into an opportunity. He had then said, “We knew that as Tech Mahindra, we were hugely into the communications space and we wanted to saddle the ICT (information and communications technology) industry. We had to find some kind of a game changer and Satyam was an opportunity.” Satyam brought with it customers in the banking, healthcare and retail industries. In 2013, Mahindra Satyam merged with Tech Mahindra, and it is today the fifth- largest IT services company in India with $4.05 billion in revenue and $477 million in net profit (March 2016), and over 100,000 employees. Gurnani, the CEO and managing director of Tech Mahindra and chairman of Nasscom, is today the poster boy of the Indian technology industry, known for his outstanding leadership abilities, be it transforming businesses, developing international business, handling mergers and acquisitions, or nurturing start- ups and responding to disruption. Most of all, he stands out as a people’s manager, who always leads by example and tends to focus on people’s strengths to bring out the best in them. His leadership style encourages entrepreneurship and empowerment, rewards and recognition, open communication, and transparency. In an interview with Amit Ranjan Rai, Gurnani speaks on his priorities for Tech Mahindra and how he plans to keep it ahead of the game in this age of disruption. You started your career as a chemical engineer, you have not done an MBA, and yet today you are leading one of India’s top IT companies and are responsible for one of the biggest turnarounds in corporate history. How do you see this journey of your life? What do you think have been the defining or key moments/decisions shaping this journey? My childhood was fairly nomadic as my father was in a transferable job. This required me to change schools and places in every few years. Strangely, living out of suitcases and sleeping on beds made of trunks didn’t seem odd actually! While that meant fewer friends forever (this was pre-social media… social and media had different meanings), that also meant that we learnt to fend for ourselves and survive swiftly in any given situation. During my days as an engineering student at REC Rourkela, I got to experience cultures and explore multiple opportunities, be it through Rotaract or through campus programmes, and experiment with several new ideas. And that

Direct Plans Will Revolutionise Mutual Fund Investments 2 years ago, school friends Mohit Gang, Anil Bang and Puneet Mehta, while discussing the shortcomings hampering the mutual funds industry, came up with the idea of starting a nancial advisory service that cuts out the middlemen (distributors) — thus doing away with their in-built commissions, trail fees and distribution costs — and brings the bene ts to the clients/investors. They co-founded Moneyfront, one of the country’s first online platforms that allows investors to invest in direct plans of mutual funds, which negate the commissions and expenses that get paid out mutual fund distributors. The fully automated and paperless investment platform uses a smart algorithm to pro le the client and suggests him the best direct plans accordingly. Moneyfront CEO and Co-founder Mohit Gang speaks to Amit Ranjan Rai on the growing shift from regular plans to direct plans and the business model to make his venture pro table in the long run.   What made you start this venture? What is the thought behind and who are the people involved? All three of us (co-founders) are from the nancial industry. We used to generally discuss a lot of the shortcomings hampering the growth of the mutual fund industry. We were of the rm view that as a country, India needs to move towards the advisory model where product providers don’t incentivise the distributors through hidden and in-built mechanisms. Hence, we decided to promote the concept of direct plans and automated unbiased advisory. The three of us — myself, Anil Bang and Puneet Mehta — who started this platform are school friends. What is unique about the business idea for your venture? What is its USP? Do you consider it a disruptive idea in the market you’re in? We are amongst the first few online platforms in the country to offer direct plans of mutual funds to clients. These were hitherto available only if you went through the fund house directly. We created a completely paperless platform and automated advisory tailored to a client’s risk profile. This not only eliminated in-built commissions involved but also gave clients access to direct plans which give up to 1.5 per cent higher returns than regular mutual funds plans. What kind of funding has already gone into the venture and how much more are you targeting in the near future? Who have been the key investors funding the venture? Initially, the three co-founders bootstrapped and then we diluted about 8 per cent of our equity last year and raised a small seed round at the idea stage. The seed round was raised primarily through friends from the financial fraternity. We are now looking to raise our next round as the platform is fully functional and live now. It is not easy to convince people to invest in a new idea. How did you manage to do the same? What are the things you think clicked with the investors? I guess initially it was more about the idea
