Men first, Nation Second and Myself third.
My dad is my hero.
I asked him for advice today via facetime as he lives in India, while I am grinding in my first start-up in Mexico City.
My question was — Dad, how can I? Make someone follow me.
He was brief but precise; I remember him being the same with his troops while he was serving in the 1.4 million-strong Indian army.
He answered my question by remembering a memory he had when he walked for the first time inside the CHETWODE building ( IMA Building in Dehradoon) as an officer himself.
He said beta (son in Hindi) always keep your :
What he meant for me was to keep my employees first and be empathetic towards them listen to them and pay attention to their needs.
He spoke like a true army officer.

Dad, you are my hero number one, and the ironman comes a close second.
Thanks, papa once again showing me the way.
Hugs, kisses and lots love
