Some dreams and vision are too big to be conceived by average human minds. To harness such ambitions, one needs to be a lot more than just a dreamer. One ought to be a visionary who finds solace in accomplishments. One such man is Tulsi Tanti, the man who started a revolution which made power generation a greener mechanism, which gave hope to the lost and made sustainability the buzzword of present times.
The year 1995 saw the advent of a green energy movement. Today, a wind farm produces 1,100 megawatts of electricity – the equivalent of one nuclear power plant. This is the realisation of Tanti’s dream via Suzlon Energy. Suzlon is already the world’s fifth largest wind turbine manufacturer and Tanti himself, who is worth $3 billion, is one of India’s richest men. This unassuming man with his carefully combed hair and thin moustache realised his dreams while facing competition from bigger and more established players.
Despite his serious demeanor and modest appearance, Tanti is known for his sharp and aggressive takeover tactics. Tanti has driven Suzlon Energy Limited not just as a business but as a cause, contributing to the world, by creating sustainable, social, economic and ecological development models by using the best technology to help mitigate the global climate crisis.
One needs to have the tenacity for success to understand Tanti’s stance. His vigour, endurance and vehemence of thought pushes him into a realm which is beyond most entrepreneurs. This makes him a global changemaker, an icon.
