Sejal & Mukul Gulati on how they are each other's 'intellectual' soul mates

Sehaj Shah GulatiAsk Sejal how different she and Mukul are, and she promptly replies, “like night and day”. She is the bubbly, fast-talking American (Indian by birth), who speaks her mind and is passionate about everything she does. Mukul is almost Zen-like; he takes time to process his thoughts before he speaks and is objective in every task he undertakes. Sejal Shah Gulati grew up in a suburb of New York in a traditional Gujarati family, while Mukul grew up in Delhi and then went to the US for college. They were set up on a date 12 years ago, only to discover that they were each other’s “intellectual” soul mates. The couple decided to come to India in 2006 so that Mukul could set up his firm’s Indian operations. They saw it as a fun adventure that they were going to take together. Mukul says that while the move brought them closer, the transition was tougher for Sejal. But she was determined to make it work and there was no stopping her.
