The efficient multi-tasker
Artist. Businesswoman. Leader. Mother. Wife. Author. Even if scientists have debunked the myth that women are better multitaskers than men, someone like Anjali Singh might have convinced them to rethink. Born in a family that owns a billion dollar group, Singh always knew that she would carry her father’s legacy forward and lead the business some day. But what she didn’t know was the kind of attention she would be exposed to. “I am not someone who likes to be in the limelight. I hadn’t realised that when you become a leader, you have many people looking for your attention and time. And, your time is no longer your own,” she explains.
The executive chairperson of Anand Group and its listed entity Gabriel India confesses that she used to be a shy person, whereas her father and husband have always been “enigmatic”. “The challenge was to come out of the shadows. But as I grew up, I found my place and learnt to be comfortable,” she says.
