IIT Memories (Part 4/5): Theme 3 — Do Different

During my years in IIT, I tried to learn to do things I hadn’t done before. Like going on Himankan, a trek in the Himalayas. I did it because I thought I couldn’t do it. It was tough during those 12 days, but the memories are still so vivid as I tell four-year-old Abhishek about the night our tent collapsed because of a snowfall and we crawled out to see the most gorgeous white we had ever seen!

Through my 17 years as an entrepreneur, I have tried to do things which are different and path-breaking – from Internet portals to thin clients to direct-to-consumer mobile data services. At times, it seems like Mission Impossible. But sometimes, not knowing how about “mountains beyond mountains” is what helps us keep climbing.
