Mr. Ankit Agarwal

About Me:

My name in Hindi means ‘to write’. I’m someone who truly believes in solid boundaries and a life outside of work because, to me, life is all about balance. While my work honed the ‘Quant’ side of my personality, I took it upon myself to work on the ‘Poet’ aspect – quite literally, since I’m currently working on my first book!
