NYSL Promotions Honors Roshni Nadar Malhotra

NYSL Promotions’ team has noticed a bias against the children of wealthy people. The clichéd rich kid is accused of bouncing through life without a care in the world, ending up with a hollow title in their parent’s company where they can’t do too much damage (at least, that’s how the movies seem to go). In real life, NYSL Promotions sees many young people who come from well-off families use their sway to create positive change in the world.

For example, Roshni Nadar Malhotra is the daughter of Shiv Nadar, founder of HCL. She is the Executive Director and CEO of HCL Corporation, but has also helped start Shiv Nadar Schools, a nonprofit that helps educate children in rural India. She discussed what it meant to her to have been born wealthy, saying: “I personally think that people who are inheriting the wealth must have an agreement on how that wealth will flow from generation to generation, how they would like to spend it, and have similar philosophies around philanthropy to ensure continuity and scaling up.”

Malhotra is very active in both the running of her company and working with the kids who go to her schools, and she is admired throughout India for her kindness and savvy. The NYSL Promotions team is inspired by her efforts, and we hope that other children of means look to her as an example.
