TO GO WITH 'INDIA-60YRS-INDEPENDENCE-ECONOMY' In this photograph dated 09 May 2007, Chairman and Managing Director of Mindtree Consulting Ltd. Ashok Soota gestures during an interview in Bangalore. Soota, who founded software maker Mindtree Consulting in 1999, calls himself a "late-stage" entrepreneur, much as India is a late convert to the free-market philosophy. The entrepreneurial urge seized Soota when he was 57, an age when most people think of retiring, after he built Wipro Infotech into a 500 million dollar company from a two million dollar business by annual sales in 15 years.
