For the last 16 years, I was pushed and mentored by several seniors and given challenging assignments and unconditional support. This allowed me to have the career path I have had. Happy realisation – I am passionate about a few more things in life and it’s time to give complete time and energy to explore the known in an unknown way.I am very excited and at the same time a little nervous to start all over again.”About the new venture, Abhishek says,“NotJustLex will offer specialized moderated classroom programs and a few online programs.
