Sanjay Tripathy, EVP & Head Marketing, HDFC Life talks about the books that have made him what he is today.

Open
Open by Andre Agassi
Arguably one of the greatest sports autobiographies ever written. Open reveals how Andre Agassi overcame huge physical and emotional trauma to achieve success. It is an inspiring story of personal growth and the struggle for self-awareness and is extremely insightful.

Fountainhead
Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
I identify with Howard Roark because, like him, I do not believe in bowing to conventions, and instead prefer to create my own path. The book has increased my faith in individualism and perseverance. What impressed me the most about it was that the author's philosophy and ideas are left to an open interpretation by the reader. The book helped me to connect with myself on a very deep level.

Linchpin
Linchpin by Seth Godin
The concept behind Linchpin is to reveal to us the importance of taking ownership of our jobs and lives. It teaches us that we need to demonstrate the value we can offer by becoming indispensable. I liked it instantly as I could identify with this. At a time when everything can be outsourced, I believe in challenging myself. The only differentiators that set us apart are; commitment, passion, creativity, and making a personal connection with colleagues and customers.
