Manek N Daruvala calls himself a self-taught entrepreneur who decided early in his career to bet on his passion for teaching. In the early 1990s, Daruvala took a call to give up his five-year fledgling corporate career in marketing and sales with the Godrej group. However, he did not rush to turn his vocation — teaching math and reasoning to graduate-level students in his spare time — into a full-time occupation overnight. Instead, he chose to play the long game.
