Samit would ideally like to create a company based on ethics and values with a culture that will transcend the organization. A company will be known by its people, so people come first for him. Keenly interested in classical music, he hopes to soon find time to start playing the Sitar again. An avid marathoner, with a conviction that good health is the key to success, Samit has successfully completed the Los Angeles Marathon, the Airtel Delhi Half marathon several times and the Standard Chartered Mumbai marathon.
