In an interview, Anand had asked Mukesh about whether he should go for consulting or banking. Stating the answer of his to-be father-in-law, he shared, “He told me, ‘Being a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket, while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket. You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term, and start now."
