Role Models

  • Ramkripa Ananthan

    Ramkripa Ananthan the Head of Design at Mahindra and Mahindra, Ramkripa is a graduate from IDC, IITB. She also did Mechanical Engineering from BITS, Pilani. Her major works include TUV 300, XUV 500 and KUV 100. She was a part in designing Bolero and Xylo also. Meet Ramkripa Ananthan, 40, who heads the 20-member all-Indian styling team that worked on the XUV500. The diminutive designer describes herself as an "out-of-doors type" - she cruises on a Bajaj Avenger, has biked from Manali to Srinagar via Leh, trekked in the Sahyadris and run the Mumbai half marathon. Perhaps it's that bent that led her to go with Vice-Chairman & Managing Director Anand Mahindra's idea of doing research in the wilderness of Kenya and on the Masai Mara for the exteriors and interiors of the XUV500. If Ananthan and her team have succeeded in bringing out the animal in the XUV500, it's evident in the features - and the way she describes them. "The dramatic side of the vehicle is its taut fender pounce, lean body, and distinctive rear haunch over the rear wheel arch," she says, painting a vibrant picture. "For the interiors, the bright centre console seemingly flowing from outside-in makes a connect like the central nervous system of a beast."
