A Farmer I Would Be!: Ranjit Nair

Ranjit Nair, Group Director – Corporate Finance, Quess Corp Ltd shares his thought on the alternate dream profession and several other things that will surprise the CFO community.

If I were not a CFO... 
A farmer I would be. From where I come, it is the least trumpted but most important profession.
 
India of My Dreams
I like to vision an India where the poor have an equal say in the growth of the nation. Successful implementation of programmes under NSDC and NREGA will help reduce the inequalities of income in India. Further, while we applaud the diversity of India as a nation, using it for petty politics with the intention of dividing people can stop.
