Software services exporter Wipro Ltd said on Thursday that founder Azim H Premji would retire as executive chairman and managing director by the end of July. Premji is India's second richest man and a well-known philanthropist. He led Wipro's evolution from a vegetable oil company founded in 1946 into a global IT firm. At the age of 21, he dropped out of Stanford University to take up the family business. But rather than giving in to the uncertainty of the future ahead, Premji picked up the trade and allowed his entrepreneurial spirit to expand his horizon and build the Wipro empire. Here's what he has to say about leadership, philanthropy, and business.
