The new generation of young, extremely skilled and successful entrepreneurs deserves accolades for daring to break away from the dull and stifling constraints of working in mega corporate houses to set up their own businesses (“Indie Spirit”, September 30). This is all the more praiseworthy at a time when the manufacturing sector is near comatose and growth is retrogressive in the country. The young entrepreneurs’ stupendous success could be traced to the fact that they have been invariably dynamic and enterprising with a keen business sense. They must have undoubtedly carried out a thorough market survey to choose the most viable business option for themselves, and had a hands- on approach to ensure that their ventures are successful.
N. VIJAYARAGHAVAN, via email It is wonderful to see young Indians coming up with innovative ideas to set up their own businesses. Usually those who have a family business are the ones who choose to be entrepreneurs. But it is heartening to see youngsters from different backgrounds deciding to do something on their own— whether it setting up eco walks or roadside eating joints.
