Thank you very much Kiran for joining us in this series. You know from a career point of view we live in a time where young people are looking at enhancing their skills looking at better career opportunities. Life insurance as a sector has grown very significantly over the past two decades. What kind of career opportunities according to you exist in a life insurance company for a young person?
Kiran Yadav: Firstly, a pleasure to be here Vivek. Lovely to meet up with you on zoom and lovely to you know speak on this topic. It's something that I hold very close to my heart. Coming to the insurance sector, you rightly said it's 20 years old but you know what we still behave like we are a startup. Insurance is something that at this at one point it is very established like you said 20 years back we came into force and when I say insurance I mean all of us you know. All the insurance companies - we've been here for a while but really to stay afloat, to do well for our customers, we have to behave like a startup on every single day. So, yes, it's an exciting place to be. Coming to careers in insurance we are open to everybody. The doors are open to everybody we are looking for engineers, we are looking for MBAs, we are looking for people you know with great selling skills, chartered accountants, company secretaries, all kind of careers we are open here including and you'll be surprised doctors nurses. So, if you want to leave the hospital corridors try something new most welcome to the insurance sector. So, we are open to different career skills because we like to have specialists in you know every sector, every place that we are in because we want to give the best to our customers. Customer is the core you know of our business and we like to give the best services, best options to them. Hence, we have specialists in every field. So, if you're looking for a career but I must also in the same breath tell you this is not an easy job. So, if somebody is looking for a convenient comfortable job this is not the place. Right, we're looking for people who have high learning graphs. We're looking for people who are agile, we're looking for people who can deal with ambiguity.
