ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
This is a famous proverb, which I truly believe is that ‘To faith in oneself and disciplined, honest approach is always fruitful. Determination, contentment and focused mind helps a man achieve new heights.’ It’s a privilege for me to express my thanks to my guides ‘Ms. Rajneet Kaur and Mr. Anil Pandey (merchandising department)’ for their meticulous and competent guidance and keen interest in making me understand the intricacies of the working of a brand from outsourcing to retailing. Above all this, I bow my head and thank almighty God for the blessings and fruitful showers on me because I truly believe that no work succeed unless blessed by god. I am grateful to god for giving such great parents and friends who are always by my side in time of need. I pray to god that I may keeping on working hard and fulfill all my dreams.
