What sets him apart is his razor-sharp memory and infectious energy, which he has channelized over the years towards dreaming of the impossible and strategizing ways and means to make it a reality. It is this very quality that has defined this man over the past two decades to enable him to make unparalleled contributions to the areas of Advertising, Sports, Talent, Content and CSR.
Here’s an attempt to capture SS’s fascinating journey.
