“There is strength in numbers. It has been great to see more and more Indians enter the industry and do so well. So much of this business and every business really is networking. If we can leverage our South Asian connections, that will lead to a host of benefits.”

“Frankly, I’d liked this page only because as a far far away cousin I wanted to contribute in whatever way I could and at that time little did I know that I was going to be pursuing a career in the field of sports. Now, after so many years of being a part of this group and constantly being abreast by latest articles,news about sports, I couldn’t have been happier about associating with the group. Of late, I also participated in your Mentorship Monday’s program as I would be moving to Canada by early next year. Although, my mentor Avish couldn’t proceed after the 1st session. This association and interaction left me feeling more confident, I felt like I have a family to fall back on in Canada. So really is actually an appreciation post, thank you for giving all of us this sense of community and belongingness, look forward to growing with fellow SAIS.”
