Explaining how Schurider raised his children, Anil added: “Even at that time, he trusted his children to find their own voice and their own way, he never dictated the direction of their lives or careers. . We stumbled, we fought, we collected ourselves and we cleaned the dirt, without ever giving up the search for our destiny. “What he has given us is what I have always tried to give our children – faith in the power of goodness, dedication to honest hard work and the courage to overcome the storms of their lives.”
