FIRST AMONG EQUALS

MillionaireAsia India - - Editor's Note -

Dear Read­ers

There is an en­tire lex­i­con of at­tributes that works in con­junc­tion to cre­ate a state of be­ing that can be de­scribed as achieve­ment. Grit, fo­cus, vi­sion, per­se­ver­ance, tal­ent and as Napoleon Hill puts it, “de­sire,” which is the start­ing point of ev­ery suc­cess story, are es­sen­tial fac­tors that pro­pel in­di­vid­u­als to the win­ner’s podium and mark them out as ex­tra­or­di­nary.

Our Achiev­ers’ List cel­e­brates this se­lect group of peo­ple. Es­tab­lish­ing new fron­tiers with the scope of their cor­po­rate am­bi­tion, these game chang­ers stamped 2016 with their em­phatic pres­ence and emerged as the big­gest news­mak­ers of a rapidly evolv­ing In­dia.

Achieve­ment is a qual­ity syn­ony­mous with Vikram Kirloskar. A fourth gen­er­a­tion en­trepreneur and an en­gi­neer from the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, his list of posts and port­fo­lios reads out like a roll call of pure dis­tinc­tion. Vikram is the Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Kirloskar Sys­tems Ltd, Vice Chair­man of Toy­ota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. and has, through­out the course of his ca­reer, strived to set stan­dards of ex­cel­lence as an in­di­vid­ual and in­dus­try leader.

“I feel knowl­edge and an abil­ity to never stop learn­ing and of course - hu­mil­ity are qual­i­ties that are a must in a leader to be­come a high achiever,” he stated dur­ing the course of an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Mil­lion­airea­sia In­dia. It would be ex­tremely tough, if not down­right im­pos­si­ble, to nd a cor­po­rate leader who dis­agrees with Kirloskar’s mantra.

Nor would any­one dis­pute the fact that once you have ar­rived, it is im­por­tant to savour that suc­cess. Sail­ing across the high seas on the Invictus 370 GT would cer­tainly count as one such high life mo­ment. Nom­i­nated as the Eu­ro­pean Power Boat of the Year 2017, the 370 GT brings on board an un­be­liev­able level of tech­nol­ogy, spec­tac­u­lar good looks and is guar­an­teed to make you feel like a win­ner.

Finely ma­tured sin­gle malts are an­other man­i­fes­ta­tion of a cir­cle that is ex­tremely rareed. Our se­lec­tion of some of the most cov­eted whiskies in the world bear the hall­mark of ex­clu­siv­ity that is in­trin­sic to Mil­lion­airea­sia In­dia. Here’s rais­ing a toast to the spirit of achieve­ment. Wish­ing you a happy and wealthy 2017. Pari­neeta Sethi Chief Ed­i­tor & Pub­lisher
