Cover Article


From the October 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Qatar, a thriving country slightly smaller than Connecticut is tucked in the middle of the Persian Gulf region, and is home to and his wife, Farida, and their two daughters, Emma (14) and Abigail (12). Mr. Grewal was raised in Bombay, India, educated in England, and has spent his career traveling the globe, implementing his expertise in financial management. Currently, he is Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Mannai Corporation in Qatar, a diverse group of companies that includes the oil and gas sector, automotive distribution, and technology. Grewal tells how Christian Science—and more specifically the passage in Science and Health that refers to "business men and cultured scholars"—has been integral to his success in the business world.

Alekh, your work has found you living living all over the world—from India to England to Australia, back to India and then to Dubai—and now Qatar. What was your journey to Christian Science?

It was through my wife, Farida. Christian Science had been introduced to her, her mother, and grandmother in India, where we both were raised. Before we got married, I said to her, "You do what you've got to do. I don't want anything to do with this." But over the years I saw the evidence of so much healing in her life that I got interested. How can I put it? She shone—that's the only way to describe it.
