Mygrandfather Kamalnayanji passedawaywhen
Iwas less than three years old. I have faintmemories
of his visits toour home inAkurdi, Pune. Healways
spent some time chattingwithme, andgaveus
Cadbury chocolateswhich I loved.
One sayingof hishas stayedwithme to these times.
Itwent something like this: ‘
vyaparmei daanhona
chahiye
’ insteadof somepeoplewho find ‘
daanmei
vyapar
’. Itwashis solemnbelief thatwhilewemust
dowell inbusiness, itsbenefitmust spreadacross
society. Everyactionof hiswas focusednot on the
narrow interestsof a fewbut for the larger good. In
recent years,wehavebeen taught aboutCorporate
Social Responsibility, butKamalnayanji espoused it
manydecadesago.We try to followhimby focusing
