Mr Malhotra was a firm believer in the power and potential of education. He believed there could be no better catalyst than education to bring about the necessary enlightenment and empowerment in society. This belief had driven him to write and self-publish a book called “General Education” at the mere age of thirteen! The book’s authoring turned out to be a life-changing event for him and gave a new push to his vision and dreams. He worked really hard and made his mark in a multitude of arenas like, Publishing, Printing, EdTech, Hospitality, Retail, Real estate, Capacity building, and Design and Construction in not just India but also abroad. However, one thing that distinguished Shri Malhotra from others, and made him earn a lot of respect and appreciation from everyone he met, was his innate desire to give more and share more and bring about prosperity for all . He never stepped back from helping those in need, be it his MBD team or the society at large. He always believed that the will to help others is the key to spreading hope and positivity, and where there is positivity, success comes naturally! and for that reason as per our Founder, MBD also stands for My Best Deeds apart from Moving Beyond Dreams.
The key aim behind commemorating this year’s Founder’s Day was to come together and celebrate the vision of our Founder as one united and happy MBD family.
