Selvaraj, who has been associated with the group since 1998, says, "Outlook has always been my pride, and Marie Claire, my passion. It's not easy for me to let go of both. These magazines are a part of my system, and I have always felt a sense of ownership with these magazines, especially with Marie Claire -- it is my baby. But, I am not naïve to believe that I am indispensable. The Outlook Group is very strong, with sufficient bench strength to face any situation."
Selvaraj, who did his MBA from the Loyola Institute of Business Administration, was promoted from the position of vice-president in 2008, and was given charge of Outlook, Outlook Saptahik, and Marie Claire.
