Papa don't preach

These daughters have struck out on their own-some following in their father's footsteps and some doing different things. But all have given business ideas a new twist, and not one is content to stay in the family's shadow.

These daughters have struck out on their own-some following in their father's footsteps and some doing different things. But all have given business ideas a new twist, and not one is content to stay in the family's shadow. All of them want to play an active role in the family business as they carve out a career for themselves, and each one of them has a clear vision about the future.

The best advice my father gave: Keep smiling, so the world wonders what you are up to.
10-years from now: I want to be a successful entrepreneur, juggling two bratty girls. If I wasn't in my father's business: I would be on the ramp.

All of 22, this chirpy girl loves filmmaking and, in fact, did her Bachelors in Media Management from Bombay University. So, what is she doing heading the luxury brands business at Brandhouse Retails, the de-merged brandspecific group company of apparel maker S. Kumars Nationwide (SKNL). Brandhouse Retails is involved in setting up and managing exclusive brand outlets for various brands across India with a special focus on fashion and lifestyle. "I feel so strongly about what my dad does and I feel that I can take it on. I feel that I am capable of carrying his name in business forward," says Kasliwal. She currently manages two international luxury brands-Escada and Alfred Dunhill-as the General Manager-Luxury at Brandhouse Retails. It might be a while before she actually heads the business but she is happy shouldering responsibilities.
