Profitability is a complex demon and in this season of festivities we are not just celebrating Durga reining in Mahisasur but also how Auto Inc is scripting its journey towards profitability. This mid-October edition brings you the inside story from across boardrooms, corporate corners and key webinars discussing the various facets and challenges of mobility.
