Thousands of miles away from the scene of the attacks, Anil Kapur, who lives in Washington, D.C., learned that he lost his elder brother. Ashok Kapur, who was chairman of YES Bank (partly owned by Rabobank of the Netherlands), was having dinner at Trident-Oberoi hotel that Wednesday evening and was killed by the terrorists.
On Friday night, a few hours before he and his wife headed to Mumbai for the funeral, Anil called into a SAJA webcast (#6, with the novelists Vikram Chandra and Thrity Umrigar) and shared his thoughts.
Anil describes Ashok as a very noble banker who was always striving to make good for people in the world. Listen to Anil talk about Ashok, his work and growing up together in Mumbai: Post your comments below.
