"So, what is your life lesson Sid?” asked Deepak, in his trademark tone filled with curiosity, energy and positivity. This was just the second time I was meeting Deepak Ramola, Founder of Project FUEL. Our first interaction was during an event that I'd organized for AIESEC Mumbai, where he was the host. I remember communicating a few last minute changes…

Every time I think that one person alone is not enough to envision and execute the transformation of this world, her face flashes in my mind to prove me wrong.
