MUCH OF WHAT HAPPENS IN OUR WORLD IS THE RESULT OF HOW WE THINK, FEEL AND ACT – ABOUT OTHERS AND ABOUT OURSELVES. WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN PEOPLE, SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNT AND GIVE FREELY, THEN GOOD THINGS BEGIN TO HAPPEN – BELIEF, SHARING, OWNERSHIP, GROWTH, JOY AND SO MUCH MORE. WHEN PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER, THEY CONNECT, THEY EXIST, FLOURISH AND COMMUNITIES GROW.
Progress and self-development are levers to achieve the outcomes we seek in the world – individually and collectively. Yes, I Believe – Dr. Desh Bandhu Gupta (DBG), Founder & Chairman, Lupin Limited.
“To Believe” was the simple thought that was in DBG’s mind when he set up the Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation (LHWRF) in 1988. He in his own way rephrased the moral and ethical role that business could play in society; he believes it is his duty and his responsibility.
