student of Ann Arbor University of Michigan completes his PhD thesis in pharmacy in record time of 22 months as against the three years it simply takes to earn doctorate & despite having a rich father, he does so only on the strength of fully funded scholarship.
It was Parvinder Singh, Former Chairman & Managing Director of Ranbaxy Laboratories, of whom Jairam Ramesh, the secretary of the economic affairs cell of the All India Congress Committee, once said, "Parvinder is one of the very few Indian CEOs with a PhD that was earned, not bestowed".
His family's unpretentious pharmaceutical business, established by his father, now has been turned into India's largest pharmaceutical company & behind this uplift there lies the never-breaking patience & unfailing enterprise of Late Parvinder Singh.
Having several subsidiaries across the world from Guangzhou in Chine to Princeton, New Jersey on the US east coast, Ranbaxy' s products are manufactured in about six countries outside India & sold in 40 countries worldwide. Singh well recognized the value of proficiency & it was the assessment, which made him declare that only the best man would come after him.
Starting his day with meditation & spending time in 'Satsang' Parvinder Singh believed that bad new always sounds worse than it is. A true assessment of the impact of bad news, isn't it?
