Anjali Mody, 26, calls herself a furniture fanatic. She’s that and a little bit more. The daughter of top corporate lawyer Zia Mody and business tycoon Jaydev Mody wears three hats. The granddaughter of former attorney general Soli Sorabjee, she heads the marketing division of her father’s gaming and hospitality company Delta Corp. Ltd. She wants to bring international gaming standards to India.

She also runs Josmo Furniture Studio, which has customization as its main selling proposition.

“We never say no to our customer for any changes, with guaranteed satisfaction. We had our first furniture show in November under the brand Double Decker," Mody says. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009 with a bachelor of fine arts in industrial design.

Third, she’s formed a communications and consulting firm, SKarma, which specializes in social responsibility strategy and social audits. It’s the social responsibility bit that led SKarma to India’s ministry of external affairs, for which Mody has started a special campaign.

She confesses that “my plate is already full". But she fully intends to stick to these three main areas. Mother Zia Mody says her daughter is “happily hard-working" and that as parents “we were intelligent enough not to drag her to a sector she is not passionate about."
