Every once in a while, we hear about a success story that inspires us, motivates us and may change our way of life. These are the stories of change-makers and leaders and their going against the grain. Their inspiring leadership is not god gifted; rather it comes from risk-taking, apt decision making and strategies. They are driven by a higher cause and a complete conviction that you're acting for the good. These captivating leadership stories are rooted in true compassion and often in the face of adversity. The leader in this story is the reason why we believe in such disruptive stories.
His story is a tale of encouragement, perseverance, and caring all treasured together into a success saga. He is inspiring and instilling in those he leads. It is perpetual leadership at its best. As a change-maker, he is encouraging those who lead and is preparing a new generation of leaders. Avowed as innovator and 'Father of Internet' in Rajasthan, he was the first person to bring private Internet services first time in the state way back in 1999.

It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water – Franklin P. Jones
Can one survive in the communications industry without knowing English? What about going beyond language barriers? The problem gets more unique in India with a billion people, 1652 languages and three-quarters of the workforce in agriculture.
