"In my 16 years of struggle for success, I realized that honesty is the best policy. Our three corporate principles, Viz honesty hard work and intelligence can be attributed to the success of our organization. Unless your approach is honest, you cannot get integrated in your work and unless that integration takes place you will not be the able to do hard work. Once these factors are put together then need to apply your intelligence which will give your intelligence which will give you success in your en-devours In other words flawless work done at the right time will ensure success."

Hospitality industry is more manpower-oriented and hence profitability is less as compared to that in the US or the UK. Says he: "Hospitality business with less manpower increases profitability. Hence our focus is one expanding our business overseas, we need to increase operational efficiency. However, with automation, our Indian Operations are also growing, I think in the next few year, our operations here too will show greater profitability." Mr Moravekar feels that in order to promote tourism in India the country's infrastructure should be further developed.
