Why Mahindra Group is Not a Family Business ?

During an interview Anand Mahidra has revealed his daughters are free to follow their hearts. They can do whatever they wants and they have their own freedom of choices.

“I’m asked this probably once a day. And I think it’s a good question because it means that women are being accepted as inheritors of corporate legacies. In my case, my daughters have made their own choice. Recently, at our annual shareholder meeting, somebody asked why they weren’t there and I said that they are part of the family business. They are working with my wife. We don’t view Mahindra as a family business. My grandfather and granduncle started it in a wave of patriotism in 1945 and saw themselves as custodians of public money and trust. So, we’ve never viewed ourselves strictly as a family company. I thought for many years that I’d be a filmmaker and it didn’t bother my father at all. There are absolutely no dynastic inclinations in my family. When I said I want to be a filmmaker, my father said fine. And when I said I’m coming into business, he said fine. We have a tradition of allowing our children to follow their hearts. And that’s what my daughters are doing and I’m very pleased.”
