Captain C. P. Krishnan Nair is chairman of The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, one of the finest hotel groups in India. From a young freedom fighter, then an officer serving in the Indian Army, to playing a prominent pioneering role in the Handloom Industry, and later becoming a major textile exporter, Nair has risen to fame and success through sheer grit and hard work. Born on 9 February 1922 in Kannur, Kerala, India, Nair received his early education at a small elementary school in his native village. A born rebel, he joined the Freedom Movement at the age of 13 and later became an officer in the Indian Army. In 1951, he resigned his commission and helped to set up the All India Handloom Board. He was instrumental in developing and marketing the “Bleeding Madras” fabric in the United States, which met with legendary success in starting exports to the United States. By 2001, he was the recipient of the prestigious Golden Globe Award for the highest exports in clothing in India from The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.
