Kumaramangala Birla

  • Kumaramangalam wins Ernst & Young entrepreneur of the year award
  • Kumaramangalam Birla eighth youngest billionaire

This is Kumaramangalam Birla, Son of Aditya Birla and Chairman of Aditya Birla Group.

He is in newspapers and webpages for the past few days for those achievements mentioned on the top. I tried replacing Kumaramangalam with Keerthivasan. Looked Good.. :)

Thats right. Anybody would want to be in the limelight this person is currently in. And he seem to deserve this because he brought back Aditya Birla group back to business, when the group was Warned of falling apart. From then on, Kumaramangalam, who took over from his father has taken the Group in the path of growth and prosperity.

Asia Times has an article about him. (and many other sites are featuring him).

At a young age, the boy billionaire has hit upon a winning formula: he lets the achievements of his companies, and not his immense wealth, do the talking for him.

Read this article. To me, it was a difference than reading the same old Wipro and Infosys story.

Quick question for you.. how do you pronounce "Entrepreneur".. few of my CA friends pronounced it in a way that sounds like "On-thra-pruno(r)"... Once i start pronouncing it properly, i will try and become one.. :)
