Back in 2010, Sarvesh Agrawal, a civil engineering graduate from IIT Madras was in a cushy corporate job as a senior business analyst with Aviva in Gurugram. But sometime that year, there came a moment of reckoning. It was personal and, it hit home. Agrawal’s former classmate from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, who was studying at the London Business School, happened to look for an internship in India.
