Just to become economically independent since tenth standard, he started doing small activities like selling fire crackers, repairing electrical appliances etc.

His career began with many ups and downs. Fifteen years back when he sold fire crackers with very low margin. But then he got a good experience and decided to be an entrepreneur only. Despite being rejected by many people for several times, with absolutely no work at times, he did not feel depressed. His family has been his greatest strength and source of encouragement which let him forget his failures and bitter lows of his life.

After completing diploma studies he had no assignments in hand. He was newly married then and earning had become important. He had lost all hopes from business and often thought of taking up a full time job. He was then supported by his brother who stood as a strong pillar of strength for him and encouraged him to work. He soon took up small projects to begin and the stars were shining bright. Sooner, he had become a trustworthy name among his field and work started pouring in. It has been over 16 years now he has never seen back.

Being an entrepreneur is not an easy task. Its one man army and one have to fight from all fronts. There are only three important things in business. Being punctual, ethical and value your commitment. If one strikes a balance of all these three things, anyone can become successful.
