Chandrashekhar: The Entrepreneur with a Social Touch
Date: Monday , December 28, 2015
An American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, \"Men are what their mothers made them\". Chandrashekhar (Founder Partner, Rajesh Rajeev & Associates) was not a born entrepreneur, but was molded since childhood by his mother to start something of his own. Chandrashekhar elucidates, \"Her soul egress to paradise, but her words \'you have to become a giver, not a taker\' inspired throughout the journey. Thus, I took up CA to commence my own company and provide employment to lessen the job crisis in the country\".
Bringing Years of Experience to Work
This is an implausible story of a person who has experience of over 25 years in corporate advisory services, direct taxation compliance reviews & employee benefits schemes, and banking & financial services. Chandrashekhar, F.C.A., M. Com., and LL.B., runs several organizations including being a partner of Kirtane & Pandit, LLP, Fine Management Consultant and the Founder Director of Fine Support Services & Partner of Apex Solutions. He is also a successful advisor in structuring and closing the first ever Rental Securitization Deal in India and a Chairman of the Audit Committee of ICICI Investment Management Company Limited.
Leading a team isn\'t easy, it involves specific skills that not everybody has. Yet ingrained with the simple philosophy of giving independence to his employee, Chandrashekhar energizes with its group tenderly. He says, \"Today I have assembled the most commanding team who have developed a niche for themselves; whether I am there or not, everything goes on smoothly. And I\'m relaxed to take up other ventures and that is how we are progressing\".
All Change Is Hard At First
\"Change is the only constant thing in life but All Change is hard at First, Messy in the Middle but so Gorgeous at The End\", says, Robin Sharma. An entrepreneurial journey is not a fairy tale of a pauper becoming a prince and living happily ever after. Chandrashekhar had experienced a ton of difficulties including discovering good talent and many more. He believes his greatest mistake was to sell his business (Rajesh Rajeev & Associate) to an American company which he wounded up learning. He elucidates, \"I didn\'t realized that when you sell off a business, the new guys would want to have their own CEO and own people heading the job\". However, being a person who gains from its own goof, Chandrashekhar articulates, \"I have decided that I\'m going to scale up my business to a great extent before I think of selling\".
On the other hand, Chandrashekhar seems to be a natural born problem solver, but being a delicate gladdens soul who believes in individual\'s sugary coated word, he often drops down. \"Sometimes I could go wrong as people could probably say something because they want favor from me, and people are not really true to their words they speak something,\" states Chandrashekhar.
Family is Life\'s Greatest Blessing
Diversified with the striking locales and perspectives that would make Da Vinci to get out his paintbrush, the world\'s luxurious city London is Chandrashekhar\'s beloved holiday destination and he loves Chinese nourishment as well. He also appreciates wriggling his BlackBerry and loves going for long drive.
Talking about his friends and family\'s bolster, he says \"My family has a greatest part in my adventure\". Today, he also expresses his gratitude to Vijay, Paneesh, Flyod, Balaji Swaminathan, Sethuraman and J L Patel for their support in whatever he did. And as a delicate and handy father of his wonderful daughter and son, Chandrashekhar declares \"I will guide them to do their best in whatever they do and wish to do\".
