Saying that he has a film making degree as the "deepest, darkest secret", Anand Mahindra, vice-chairman and MD of conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, at WEF, delved into the positive impact of being innovative.

"My undergraduate degree is in film making. For a long time, it was my deepest, darkest secret. I didn't want anybody to know unless I get thrown out of my company. Today, I am looking for film maker and designer and people from humanities. That is how I am going to create a culture of innovation," Mahindra said.
