V Vaidyanathan, Chief Executive Officer of IDFC First Bank gifted 1 lakh of his shares, worth Rs. 30 lakh, to his former school maths teacher Gurdial Saroop Saini as a “sincere and heartfelt gratitude for helping him at an earlier stage in his life”.
When he got admission to Birla Institute of Technology in Ranchi, he ran out of money to buy train tickets to reach Ranchi. Mr. Saini, his mathematics teacher lent him Rs. 500 to take a train to help him appear for an interview for the Birla Institute of Technology Ranchi. Mr. Vaidyanathan searched for him for over 30 years but couldn’t find him. One fine day a bank staff skip-traced his teacher in Agra, whom he then called to thank him profusely.
