"The stirring within and continuously reminded by my most revered father, was my conscience always telling me, whatever you are, you owe it to the society. I have the conviction that only by doing selfless service to the needy and the poorest of the poor, one can achieve a true sense of satisfaction and happiness; the highest purpose of life."
Dr. Desh Bandhu Gupta, Founder & Chairman, Lupin Ltd
Lupin Limited flourished predictably well, yet in its Chairman Shri Desh Bandhu Gupta’s sub conscious, there always was a strange stirring within. “Whatever you are you owe it to your motherland and its people. Take it upon yourself to repay this debt in all humility and gratitude.” Beyond the realms of business, Shri Desh Bandhu Gupta, Chairman and Founder of Lupin group of companies promoted Lupin Human Welfare & Research Foundation on 2nd October, 1988 with an objective to provide an alternative model of rural development which is sustainable, replicable and ever evolving. This was a humble tribute to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary.
