Gupta mentions that life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them. "I met and worked with many inspiring colleagues who then turned either into mentors or friends. Love you all, love you Lintas so much and I am so proud to have been part of you," he says.

"Over the last one year of his association with us Raj actually proposed, designed, and activated what is possibly the most integrated and comprehensive Digital Education Program that the industry has seen. As a direct result of Raj's hand in this and because of the role he played in bringing the Lintas Trust's contribution to educating and upgrading the entire Lintas talent force, we are today stronger and a more contemporary strategy and communications company and not just an agency," says Jaleel.
