Textile scion's mantra for success - 'Know your business'

The first time you meet him, he comes across as a fun loving youngster, with an unshaved look and who may be living life in the fast lane. The warm smile and humble but firm handshake, immediately disarms you and within moments you feel, you have known him since a million years. 

He is only 26 years, but displays a maturity much beyond his age. The leadership qualities are reminiscent of those seen in his illustrious father and forefathers. His lineage did not mean a direct entry into the boardroom, but he earned his stripes, by working his way up from the bottom to the boardroom. 

After graduating with an electrical engineering degree from Stanford University, he preferred to first work outside the family-owned textile group in management consulting firm - Mckinsey, to learn management styles firsthand and now is pursuing an MBA from Harvard, which he expects to pass out next year. 

He is none other than Kulin Lalbhai, second son of Mr Sanjay Lalbhai - CMD of the Rs 40 billion - Arvind Ltd. Kulin is from the fourth generation of a family, which traces its roots to Shri Kasturbhai Lalbhai, who laid the foundation of what is now Arvind Ltd. 

The city of Ahmedabad owes it to the Lalbhai family for setting up many textile mills in the past and generating employment for thousands of people. Alongside, the family also donated land or set up many reputed educational institutions of higher learning in the city.
