Entrepreneurship in India is not easy. It was tougher in the 1990s for a first generation entrepreneur with USD 100 in his pocket.  Entrepreneurship in Education was even rarer. Building an educational organisation with over a million customers from scratch is completely unheard of even today unless you know Satya.

    Hi Satya ji,

    Greetings! This is Ranjana. You may remember me from our brief association during your visits to the Brahma Kumaris, Om Shanti Retreat Centre at Manesar for CL programs. I was then the Program Coordinator there. I was trying to reach you. Can I have your email address where I could write to you in detail.

    Thanks and Look forward,
