The inspiring true story of one man's journey to achieve the American Dream, and the wisdom he gained about what it takes to find success.

Raghbir (R.K.) Sehgal left his native India as a teenager with little money in his pocket. He worked factory jobs in the United Kingdom and eventually moved to the United States. Living in the Deep South in the 1960s, Sehgal experienced discrimination and that redoubled his desire to succeed. He started as a junior engineer at Law Engineering and rose to become Chairman & CEO. Close the Loop is his story told through the voice of his son Kabir Sehgal. This is a profound and personal meditation on hope, persistence, diligence, and resilience. Raghbir also shares his five lessons for success, which you can use to optimize your life.
