“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Harley Davidson India MD joins Canada biz

While former MD of Harley Davidson India, Anoop Prakash , has changed lanes to oversee the company's Canadian business, there's no decision on who will take his saddle back home.

Prakash, who led the company's entry into India, was here for a little over six years. Harley Davidson spokesperson Tony Macrito confirmed Prakash's move via email to ETPanache.

"Anoop Prakash has assumed the role of MD, Harley Davidson Canada, leading the new subsidiary office as the company begins direct distribution to independently owned Harley Davidson dealers in Canada", he said.

For now, the company's market operations manager Rajiv Vohra is the interim managing director. As for who the new MD might be, Macrito says, "We aren't going to speculate and will make the announcement when the new MD is named".

Close to Prakash setting up base in Toronto, another rival is also in pursuit - Royal Enfield is also planning an aggressive focus on the North American market, especially US and Canada, Harley Davidson's home turf.

Harley Davidson though has always maintained that Enfield is no competition. In a media interaction earlier this year, Prakash had said, "Are you kidding? We are not even competing. The most expensive Royal Enfield motorcycle is half the cost of the least expensive Harley in India."

Does Prakash's shift have any thing to do Enfield's North American push? Macrito refused to play ball, saying, "I think you're reading too much into it".
