Usually, people are blessed with a specific interest, a specific type of natural skill, along with the chosen field of education and work experience; but often, these four aspects don’t prove to be wholly purposeful and objective-based; an uncertain imbalance occurs in one aspect or the other. But in Krishna’s case, all four aspects are in a harmoniously balanced form, and all are being utilised to their fullest in all walks of his life. This balance has been well-planned by Krishna and it has been bringing him coveted accomplishments.
Krishna’s situational competence reflects in his experience throughout his life’s journey, and he can offer the best solution for almost any kind of issue with the analytical skills he has. People, who work with Krishna respect and equally adore him for his sensitivity, responsiveness, perseverance, humility, and integrity, which he reflects toward people.

After gaining requisite Management experience, Krishna went forward with the Advanced Program in Strategic Management from IIM, Calcutta for the further refinement of his strategic thinking abilities.
