“‘Young at heart’ is what would describe Kapil Sir in shortest way. His life experiences which he blends in his teachings are immensely inspiring. Now with his blog his beautiful and encouraging life experiences can be heard by many. He continues his streak of inspiration with his words of wisdom. Being his ex student, i came across quite a few of his experiences that he never shared in my class. This way I am happy to be his student forever. If becoming an entrepreneur is your goal in life then Kapil Sir is the person you need to go to learn some important lessons before you start your journey. Good Luck with the blog Kapil Sir.”

“Kapil Sir has been an amazing mentor to me right from the time I took up my MBA course till today! His teaching style and zeal is what lures students to learn more and he even makes the most difficult concepts seem like a piece of cake. He has the uncanny ability to successfully engage students with several real world examples and link them with the theoretical concepts that he teaches. I clearly recollect his Project Management and Operations Strategy lectures today whilst making Organization level decisions for several macro projects. I am deeply grateful to Kapil sir and credit a lot of my career achievements to his enigmatic training skills”

Munmun Bhatt

“Kapil sir has been a phenomenal professor from my alma mater. However, I saw him as a content creator for the first time. There are certain quintessential features in the blogs that compel you to read them again. I would highly recommend to all the readers to have a look. It’s a different perspective all together!”

“My first interaction with Prof. Kapil Tandon was during my internship submission. I had a great impression of him in the Q&A round we had. We met again during my last semester where he was my faculty for Operations Strategy. He teaches to to make students aware about day to day scenario and then co-relating it with the books rather than teaching theories and then leave students to relate it with reality. I am very fond of his lectures and the way he explains the case studies which in itself shows the ability, vast domain knowledge and insight about industries across verticals. Thank you sir for all your support and lessons.”

Shubhi Sharma

“If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written upon the heart. The spirit should never grow old.” I am reminded of Kapil sir when I read this quote by James A. Garfield. I am so privileged to have him as a mentor. He blends his immense knowledge and experience with real-life. How beautifully he can explain every topic that we connect with it automatically! Sir, you have always motivated me to be a leader, just like you. The first time I heard that you started your professional journey from Kota, the city I hail from, I felt so proud. You have taught me to strike a balance in this professional journey. You have a different thought process towards learning, i.e., lessons should reflect on our behaviour! Thank you for everything!

Twinkle Sanghvi
Assistant Manager- TATA Capital

There is not enough I can say about how lucky I am to have got a mentor and an advisor like Kapil Sir. His patience and understanding are unsurpassed. He has set the bar for rigour in learning and has positively influenced me to grow. It was an honour to study strategic management and business ethics under a gem like him. I still remember that day when I called him before my interview at TATA Capital; where his words were ” I know you are an excellent student and they’ll select you”. Unaware of what the future holds for me, one thing was sure that it motivated me to challenge my limits. Sir, you continue to embrace me more and more with your knowledge, creativity and this engaging blog of yours. They say some people brighten up the room with their presence even in distance –you are one of those living examples. You aren’t just helping me learn, you’re making me a better person every day. You have always gone above and beyond the expectations of a ‘great’ professor. Thank you for your guidance, wisdom and compassion as I continue this management journey.

We read your blog regularly on the weekends. Thoroughly enjoyed the way you created all the formulas of life in your latest post. It is so relatable to each one of us, regardless of age and profession. Your advice is practical and inspirational. Your posts help me think and grow socially. Keep writing and sharing your pearls of wisdom! We both wish you the very best, always! 🙏Thank you!

It is said that the process of learning is irrespective of academics, and how truly have I witnessed this. I have learnt my best lessons in life from a professor I was never associated with academically.
I was fortunate to be guided under the umbrella of Prof. Kapil Tandon Sir during my internship in 2020.
My experience during the internship was not very favourable and I had to go through some bitter and illegal business hands. But somehow I gained strength to stand against it only because Kapil Sir showed confidence in me. He taught me a life lesson that if you are not wrong, do not fear anything. He taught me when you stand for yourself and for the right, things will fall in place. Since that day he did not abandon me and kept motivating me saying, every bitter experience is a learning opportunity.
Post then the global pandemic started affecting various jobs. But Kapil Sir never abandoned any of his student and continued to teach us how to grab the best out of the given situation. During my first job I missed an opportunity just because of the game of luck. I was disheartened and started doubting my capabilities. I contacted Kapil Sir, with the same enthusiasm he helped me immediately without any delay. The time when many of my academic professors denied to help me, Kapil Sir tried his best to bring things on board and kept me mentally calm.
I have been fortunate enough to be blessed with a guide who has given me the lessons which no university books teaches. He has helped me become a better professional and an art of staying focused and calm when things go south. This is just an appreciation blog, where I will like to thank Kapil Sir for being such an amazing guide, motivator and believing in me.

I met Kapil Sir during my job interview at a GTL group company. He was one of the interviewers. After that we were a team. We spent a lot of time on financial modelling and business planning for the company. Working with him was a very stimulating and enriching experience. He naturally became my mentor and I learnt a lot from him… not just about work. We discussed life, healthy living and he even gave me some amazing salad tips! I was lucky to have shared his tiffin everyday because his wife whom I lovingly call Indu Aunty cooks the most amazing and healthy food. The times spent with him have been some of my most memorable ones. At 70 plus, he has this infectious enthusiasm and energy which most youngsters lack!

Thank you so much for this blog Sir. I read your “Don’t react. Respond” blog and I must say that I got the motivation and inspiration on how to tackle dealers/clients when thrown at such situations. I usually am a person who gets nervous when tested or reacted in such a way. But from now on, I will surely try to respond calmly in such situations. Thank YOU so much again for always being there for us. 🥰 And guiding us in the path of life. We’re extremely blessed to have a friend in a professor. We love you. Thank You so much again. 🙏🏻😁

Rashi Sabbarwal

It was always splendid to hear Kapil sir narrate insightful stories from his personal experiences when I came for his classes. And now that I’m not in college anymore, I read all of his blogs. It’s great how he shares these strategies and tactics with relevant and interesting stories. Certainly an inspiration for the younger generation. They’re Informative articles that can help to turn around the negative aspects of our lives and spur us into taking positive actions .

Hansika Pathak

Sir it was pleasure to be your student and also to be your GG (good girl). Thank you sir for pushing me forward to interact and also I’ve learned a lot from your lectures and from you. I was not an interactive student back in my school days but you pushed me forward to speak and give answers in class that made me confident. We really enjoyed your class and I think we would have enjoyed a lot more if the classes were offline because there we would have met you in person but I wish you come back as our mentor, teacher in next semester. Thank you for being so chilled out teacher that I have ever came across!

Keertana Lakshminarayan

Your classes have been fun and very informative, and your blogs have been a cherry on the top. You have been like a grandfather-professor to us and I will always remember you and your lectures. Thank you so much sir for sharing your valuable time and your life long experiences with us. It really means a lot and will cherish this forever sir. Thank you once again. 


  1. Something I really appreciate about you is your aptitude for problem solving in a proactive way. Hats off Sir. I always see a mentor in you
