Talking about the importance of women role models in India, the 52-year-old former Google India head said that being around entrepreneurs has had a positive impact on his daughter.
"We are a family of entrepreneurs. My daughter is studying hard because she aspires to be an entrepreneur just like her mother and her mom's friends," he emphasised.

"Role models are crucial in India as they bring in a lot of energy," Anandan added.
