Born in Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu, Natarajan Radhakrishnan, President and Global Chief Innovation Officer at Hinduja Global Solutions Limited (HGS) still has abiding memories of his village life and early schooling.

He still remembers appearing for the National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) and ended up finishing the district topper (rather unexpectedly, he added). Natarajan’s father, who was a school teacher and a part-time agriculturist, was thrilled by the evidence of his son’s first major academic achievement. Natarajan later moved to a nearby town for his senior secondary studies.

An MBA degree holder from IIM Ahmedabad, recalls that “Back then, I didn’t even know about the IIMs till I met one of our family friends on a visit to my sister’s residence during my college days. There were not many training classes for MBA preparation – one mostly went by natural abilities and wit! It was indeed a pleasant surprise when I received the admit letter.”
