You have to be here to realize what great teachers are made of.
" To understand the complexity of business, look at the people who run the show...look at what they have been ..." Thus started one of the best courses I have taken here at IIM Ahmedabad during PGPX.
Jerry Rao, ex-Citibanker and founder of the well known MPhasis BFL was here till the last week - not as one of the legends of Indian IT industry but as a teacher - and let me add a legendary teacher.
It is amazing to hear his point of view on many many things. The course was on perspectives and that was what we got. Truly amazing course. The books that we are reading for it at are great. I am overwhelmed listening to his truly fantastic views on some of the most celebrated companies and some not as celebrated ones.
The finest talk came when he spoke about himself, the Diaspora and how India and Indians are evolving....
