Angad Singh Saluja
An MBA in Finance from IBS and with handful of experience in the banking industry, Mr. Angad Singh Saluja has come a long way with his entrepreneurial skills in the last few years after being associated with corporate houses like Reliance Mutual Fund and ING Bank. He now heads his own business of car security components,a retail setup of consumer electronics and a firm catering to e-commerce products. He completed his Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) Degree from Delhi University in 2008 and always was seen taking a keen interest in seminars, symposiums, group discussions and debates throughout his student days.

He used to write only for self till last year as he points out but reading out some poems to certain friends in their gloomy days made him witness the change in them. That is when he struck a chord with everyone and decided to share his writing which could capture real life instances and motivate people. His first book "Chords of Life" has been published which he points out is a collection of real life experiences and stories written in the form of both long and short poems which would easily strike a chord with the readers. His work has been declared as a best seller and also has received great reviews from Hindustan Times, Editors, Publishers,Book Forums and Readers across the nation. "I never was a writer but life just made me one", he says as he talks about his next novel which he is working on currently and is pretty sure about its success as it would be loved by everyone having a heart.

"A person only lives once, but if you live right,once is enough". That is what he believes in and thus has taken an oath to heal the young blood in terms of the casual relationships happening these days.His words do talk about emotions,love,trust and various other aspects of relationships which ultimately have a single motto to life "Cheers to Long Term Love". Also he owns his success to the society and has a sense of gratitude towards the same. "A pen is mightier than the sword", he says and thus he is trying hard to tackle worldwide problems such as global warming and world peace through his words so that people become aware and educated regarding its long term consequences. A society full of love,peace,gratitude,kindness and trust is what he envisions.When questioned regarding how tough the journey might be and full of challenges, he simply replies, "I am doing my bit, you keep doing yours and ultimately you will see it is not that tough."
