That he is a business baron heading the Dodsal Group, with a presence in 22 countries, with interests in trading, engineering, construction, mining and hospitality, is just one part of the Rajen Kilachand story. The Mumbai native, a self-styled ‘career philanthropist’, has personally committed more than $50 million to philanthropic initiatives, which span health care, vocational training and education, including building libraries and teachers training institutions.

When he is not playing head honcho to the multimillion dollar business, Kilachand says he enjoys the kite festival in Gujarat as much as he does the New Orleans Jazz festival.
