Dr Anji Reddy's demise came as great blow to all of us. It is difficult and sad day today for the State and industry. More so for entreprenuers like us who are pharmaceutical and life science sector. He was a father figure for many of us. We looked up to him on many occassion for his invaluable guidance. I would call him a roll model and inspiration for many young techno entreprenuers, who has started the enterprises taking the example of Dr Anji Reddy.
He has shown what application of technology and how the benefits of it can be passed on to common man. Thereby bringing many number of high quality drugs at competitive prices which was otherwise not available in India. This is a great human service he has initiated. Today Hyderabad is aptly called as Bulk Drug/Pharmaceuticals capital of India. It goes to show that people like Dr Anji Reddy set that path forty years ago. Suchitra K. Ella, Jt MD, Bharat Biotech, Chairperson, CII, AP State Council
AP has lost a legend. He was an epitome of entrepreneurship and inspiration for scores of first generation entrepreneurs like me. His demise was a great loss to Indian pharma industry. Hailing from middle class background, he built a global pharmaceutical enterprise. He is our local hero -Y Harishchandra Prasad, Malaxmi Group
Passing away of Dr Anji Reddy is a great loss not only to DRL fraternity but also the Pharma Industry. He was a visionary and trendsetter whether making Hyderabad the API capital of India, venturing into NCE Research or entering US market. These actions put India on the global Pharma ma. He always remained ahead of others in his thought and actions in Pharma Industry. His passion for Pharmaceuticals was unmatchable and infectious especially for products and brands.
He was a people's person and very decisive. He always persuaded us to think big. He was one of the few Pharma promoters who willingly and effectively delegated operations to the next generation. His dialogues, with us and prodding for aiming high and big will always remain and fresh in our minds. -Arvind Vasudeva, CEO Formulations Aurobindo Pharma, Former Vice President (India Operation) , Dr Reddy's
