In one of the Monday Meetings at Divisional Railway Managers office in Baroda, B.B Modgill said to his departmental heads:
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, Build the door.”
This quote inspired his officers to keep on trying, trying and trying so much that they became the best railway division in Western Railway, by outscoring much bigger unit like Mumbai.
This above statement, not only shows the “never-say-die” attitude of BB Modgil, but also a sense of optimism that great leaders who was lead from the front exude. No wonder, he led his team from the front overcoming two major crises – the earthquake of Gujarat when the railway line connecting Bhuj (epicentre) was disconnected form rest of India and Sabarmati train which was burnt at Godhra.
As a young member of his professional team, I saw him face many obstacles, but I also saw him fight his way to out.
There are THREE things that makes B.B Modgil unique. These are:
I was truly inspired by this amazing person and an ever-smiling leader.
