THE FOCUS OF FINANCE:
Dr. K. A. Palia, Executive Director, Interviewed
Dr. K.A. Palia, Executive Director, Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd., is probably the most important man in Godrej (of course he’ll deny this vehemently!). For he has his finger on the Godrej pulse.
He has known the pulse beat stronger in times past. But he is not unduly ruffled. Recessions come, but they also go. He maintains his faith in old Godrej values, revivified by modern management systems — most recently, Partnership 2000 with its credo of entrust and empower.
A religious man who lives by the motto, good thoughts, good words and good deeds, he also has the humility of the genuinely religious. For him life is reduced to a LONG hard day’s journey into night. Duty done. Conscience obeyed. Honour, integrity upheld. He enjoys the sleep of the just.
