A champion of international trade, investment and emerging markets, Professor Dr Mohan Kaul is an influential and recognised policy adviser, business leader, social entrepreneur and an academician.
My entire life changed after I met Dr. Mohan kaul in two or more occasions at the Commonwealth Business Council meetings (CBC), CHOGM, The Commonwealth Heads Of Government meetings. And when I faithfully followed his ‘super-words’ of wisdom, I rediscovered myself, started adding more values to my life, believed more in myself to be more and do more.
I recognized so many things that I could do with my unique talents, time, resources, potentials, and energy to live a purposeful life silently.
My so many untapped potentials became a big breakthrough for me as I climb higher levels in my life journey. He made me to understand how powerful knowledge and experiences gathered in life can transform our lives.
Today I am celebrating this great leader who planted a very good seed into my life and today that seed has grown into a very big tree with so many branches, strong roots and fruits.
It doesn’t take so much to change a life and add to the numbers of responsible young leaders who will help to make the world a better place for all of us. It takes a great and impactful leader to recognize young visionaries and help them achieve their goals | vision | dreams in life without oppressing or intimidating them.
Today, I can sit on any table at any level with very high self confidence, high self esteem knowing that my race, gender, beliefs, religion, educational qualifications are not barriers to what I can do or offer on that table, but my competence, wisdom, expertise, knowledge and what I can bring to the table as an infinite solution provider and one of the best world’s natural solutionist, Mgbeke the genius.
I strongly believe that one day great leaders like Dr. Mohan Kaul, Barrack Obama, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Kamala Harris, Mitchell Obama, Judge Frank Caprio, Judge Shannon Frison, Ishmael Yamson, Baroness Lynda Chalker, Olusegun Obasanjo and so many other leaders that our paths have crossed in the journey of my life will hand over or pass the baton of leadership to us the younger generation who have against all odds survived all the trials, tribulations, pains, injustices, disappointments, discrimination, ugly setbacks, challenges, and oppressions similar to what they’ve survived on their own journey of life to greatness.
I will forever celebrate, love and respect Dr. Mohan Kaul and all the role models, mentors who have impacted my life positively. But today, i want my generation to know a little more about this great man, Dr. Mohan Kaul.
