Lord Karan Bilimoria, CBE DL, Chairman, Cobra Beer Partnership speaking about taking India to the greater heights, at AIMA’s Diamond Jubilee National Management Convention. Read Excerpts from his speech
Congratulations to AIMA on your Diamond Jubilee, I’ve just come down from London via Dehradun. My mother lives in Dehradun, 81 years old, and I went to see her. And I met with the commanding officer of the Second fifth Gurkha Rifles frontier force, my father’s battalion, which he commanded in the liberation of Bangladesh. Dehradun is where I first got to know Sunil Munjal, it was my father who introduced me to Sunil when they were both members of the board of the Doon School. And he said to me, you must meet this impressive young man, he’s really good. My father was a very good judge of character, and I’m now so proud that this impressive young man is a very good friend of mine, he’s now chairman of the board of Doon School.
