It gives me great pleasure to see a company invested in active and healthy living and creating inclusive platforms that give an opportunity to everyone to shine. They have a greater purpose, way above business, and that is what resonates with me. India is always great, but today is special -- seeing all of you gathered here, meeting and interacting with you, it inspires me to try harder than ever before to do my bit and give back as much as I can and grow this spirit of inclusion to touch many more lives.”
