    "E Sreedharan’s story was inspiring — how he has done two successful metro projects, and at this age to have that kind of will power and zeal. He’s been invited to look at what could be done at Dal Lake in Srinagar, so every government today is seeking his sort of vision and experience. I also think Wipro is a classic example of a good corporate citizen. You can be profitable but also give back to society. And of course, Arun Jaitley. We all miss him."

    Sachin Bansal, co-founder, Flipkart
