I like challenges. I like to get out there. Comfort makes me a little bit uneasy. Another thing that became evident to me is that this is the biggest challenge in India. I mean there is no bigger agency, with the most number of creative people, and if those people find me talented, it will be a new level of leadership and get some great work out there, iconic work for these iconic brands. Designations are nice, but that is just not what I am about.
