Be inspired! Some great quotes from Australian-Indian business leader Vivek Chaand Sehgal

I recently saw some inspirational quotes from Australian-Indian business leader Vivek Chaand Sehgal, Chairman of Samvardhana Motherson Group (SMG).

“In Sanskrit we say that what doesn’t grow is dead.”

“A river, without other rivers flowing into it, will never reach the sea.”


“In Hinduism we believe in four stages of life … the third is where you hand over what you have done, before going to the mountains, so I’m probably just about there.”

“There’s a saying in Sanskrit – ‘the world is a family’.”

“Only the most brainless businessman arbitrages labour or walks away when he doesn’t have to. He ignores the genius of a whole people, and our university partners have shown us that out-of-the-box thinking is still everywhere in Australia.”

Be inspired!
