Recently had a conversation with H Bala who is my mentor, role model and ex-boss. I was seeking some advice and counselling on career & personal side. His view was, don't worry much, just hang on and remember this , "Tough Times don't last, tough people do". This was a great mood lifter. Having seen Bala closely as my boss have all the believe that he might emerge as a really successful leader in the GE world. It is just a matter of timing.
