Lessons from Failure
This was in #2004 or roundabout.
We had a meeting with a #Corporate Honcho, head of a #Company which is considered among the biggest #debacles of #Corporate #India.
At that point when we met him, he was blacklisted by the #RBI, a fact he himself informed us about.
“My travel agent gets a car loan, I don’t”, he said
.For obvious reasons, I will take no names.
We were meeting him for a #Corporate #Film they were planning to do. The Film was to be directed by the most promising young Directors of the day. And I was writing it.
We were sitting in the restaurant of #JW Marriott, Juhu.
“What stupid things we did. We had #Rs 800 #crores and we simply threw it away”, he said. And then pointing towards the road, he continued,” We were trying to run a #Formula 4 on the streets of Mumbai.”
Big big lesson.
