Would you have the courage to leave behind a comfortable life in big MNC to chase a dream full of uncertainties? That’s exactly what SujaySantra, did. Unhappy with the way his life was going, he resigned from Oracle – one of the biggest software and hardware systems companies – and got into his own business. “Although I had a very decent and satisfying life, I had an identity crisis.
