In this podcast we are talking to Mr.Vikram who was born in a Marwari family. He Studied in four different schools in 2 different cities as his father travelled for work. He was always above average academically and in extra-curricular activities. His purpose was to wear a uniform in his life and armed forces was his 1st choice, when that did not happen, he got an opportunity in the next best thing. He was part of the 1st Dual stream cadet batch which was sponsored by Maersk with campus at AMET, Chennai and so his merchant navy career started.
