Shikha Sharma – India’s leading banker and the current CEO of Axis Bank, had an offbeat advice for the young Management Graduates at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A). She graced the graduation ceremony at IIM-Ahmedabad and to everyone’s surprise spoke on the importance of choosing the right life partner. She said, “You are poised to enter the real world tomorrow. The choices you make there will define who you become”.
“The choice of a life partner is the single most important choice you’ll make in your life, much of the joy you derive in your life, does hark back to who you choose to share this journey with. A lot of what I am today are a function of the life partner I was lucky to have alongside my journey. Sanjaya and I, both alumni of IIM-A, are very different people. But we are not all that different either. We have very similar core values,” she said.
“When you are out there looking for a partner, look beyond their looks, their success, their style. The durability and strength of your relationship if not going to come from your partner’s personality. It is going to come from their character, so remember to look well beneath the surface.”
