Says Shankar, "i am privileged to lead the industry body at a critical juncture when the industry needs to leap to the next level by working collaboratively with the government and other stake holders. punit goenka would have been my personal preference for the president's role since i have already done a stint as ibf president. however, in view of punit's existing commitment to barc, he proposed that i hold the reins at ibf."
...The biggest challenge, however, would be - where do you go from here? "i don't think we even have clarity on what's happening internally. each of these companies, be it big players or small, need to reinvent themselves" said Shankar
