In the Indian Army, there is seldom any offer in the infantry that doesn’t rub shoulders with death. Senger too had experienced his share of morbid clashes. And it was during one of these incidents an AK-47 round shattered his hip bone, crushing his dreams of leading the unit to wars again. But Senger didn’t give up. During his convalescence in the hospital, he boasted himself mentally, read books, prepared for CAT, and earned an MBA degree from IIM-Ahmedabad. Today, Sengar is a top management professional with Microsoft. Senger’s is a story of resilience and disciple that comes with strenuous mental and emotional preparedness.
