Friend’s review for Tapan Dash
He went from nothing to something and now has spent 14+ years in the various industries. Tapan had traveled most part of India, met with people and always tried to learn new things from everyone on the way. He now lives in Hyderabad with his wife along with his parents. But he didn’t forget his roots, he still remembers the warm & caring attitude everyone who helped him to grow throughout the years.
He tries to help everyone in his personal and professional life in whatever small ways he can. He believes as human beings we are not the smartest, not the fastest and neither the strongest, it is only by helping each other in our small and limited ways we survive as a race.
