Yash Birla, in a talk with Shobha De, shares the rights and wrongs of The
Yash Birla Group
and how, despite the hardships and up and downs, they always managed to come out of it with perfection. He further shares that in future, if an opportunity comes where he can take the business globally, then he would certainly jump on the idea and expand the Yash Birla Group.
When Shobha De asked him whether he compares himself with his cousins with bigger empires and aims to reach their target and also asks him about his future business aim, he replied, ” I do not compare myself with anybody. I do not make comparisons in numbers, instead, I would compare that is the other person excelling in whatever they are capable of doing to a greater extent than I am. In my circumstances, I would consider that and not the number game or competition in another way.”
Further, they talk about his fondness for fashion, and Yash Birla says that it would be an injustice to his passion if he denies it. His love for fashion is clearly visible in the way he dresses and carries himself. He does not limit himself to one style of clothing and enjoys exploring different kinds of clothing.

His wife, Mrs Avanti Birla, has made his life easier, and he shares that the bond they share is inseparable. He expresses his love for his family by spending quality time together on vacation to places like Rishikesh, Varanasi, and Tirupati instead of only going to foreign countries. He asserts that it is essential that children learn the basics of Indian culture and not forget their roots.
