Sam Walton of India

by Deepak Sharma on Wednesday, November 02, 2005

Some time back Economic Times ran an article on Kishore Biyani. Good Read.

There would be little hyperbole in calling him the father of organised retailing in India. When everyone thought that the concept of hypermarkets (discount stores) in organised retailing was a distant dream in India, he stormed the market with Big Bazaar.

That’s Kishore Biyani for you, the 43-year old chief knowledge officer and managing director of Pantaloon Retail (India), the man who wants to be India’s Sam Walton or to use another analogy the Dhirubhai Ambani of Indian retailing.

One comment

There's no doubt about it. Kishore Biyani always has the knack of turning things around. I have the honour of knowing him for the last 15 years and one thing I can say for sure is ...HE IS SAM WALTON OF INDIA. He should be honoured with Padmshri.He has changed the face of Indian retailing permanently and has made the whole world sit up and notice us.

I still cherish a book gifted to me by him...that's a biography of SAM WALTON.

He always motivates us by saying...THINK BIG!!!!!
