It was , and will always remain a great privilege to work with Kumar Sahab, people call him with love by that name.
not just work with him for but know him so much from close and personally
a man of commitment, action and living example of rags to riches
as samara grew, so did Kumar sahab, but he believed in team and never left anyone behind.
i remember those car drives with him and he was so humble and so easy to talk to, not for a second i feel any hesitation.

A man of family, vision and long long path of success.
