Once she said in a interview I think leadership is about shared vision.I think if you can share the passion, commitment, sense of purpose, spirit of challenge with others, who believe in the same kind of value then, you can attract like-minded people. Thats what I have done. I just shared my vision and sense of purpose with a lot of likeminded people. I feel leadership is about how you retain people. You motivate them, you make them feel excited about belonging to the same set of goals and it is also about team-spirit. I have also believed in building great teams.I also believe if you want to build great teams, you should make people concentrate on definite goals.I am not a kind of person who will postulate about where you will be after 10 years because this field is so fast moving that what I am doing today will be completely different from what Ill be doing 10 years later.

juggled investment on new products. Spent heavily on ORAL INSULIN. Some products like BESTOR, BASALOGTM considerably less expensive than other leading brands. Two of its novel programs on the verge of proof-ofconcept stage are IN-105, which is the only oral insulin in the world to be in long duration clinical trials, and the T1h, a novel humanized monoclonal antibody (MAb), the only first-in-class novel MAb being tested in India for rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.
IN 105 Subcutaneous Insulin is very effective in the treatment of diabetes but its prescription is generally delayed due to inconvenience of needle usage and potential hypoglycemia (caused by excess insulinisation). In contrast, Oral Insulin (ie. Insulin in tablet form) is simple and painless to administer. Additionally, it is delivered through the portal vein, mimicking the natural physiology of the body. If successful in the clinic, Oral Insulin could become a very important therapy for intervention in earlier stages of diabetes.
T1h T1h is a novel humanised Monoclonal Antibody that blocks the activity of CD6, a specific antigen found on the surface of an important cell type in the immune system, T cells. T1h suppresses T cell proliferation in vitro and is expected to modify the course of arthritic disease in the clinic by modulating T cell behaviour.
