Ritu Kumar is older than the fashion industry in India. Quiz her on what drove her to become an entrepreneur and she finds the question hard to answer; pinpointing an instance is even harder. “This will be a very long answer, as there is a 45-year history behind this business,” she says, finally. Like with many entrepreneurs, Kumar too purely chanced upon her calling, but more on that later. At 70, Kumar comes across as just as young and humble as she was when she started out.
