At 94 years, Dharampal Gulati was the highest paid FMCG CEO in India in 2017 with about Rs 21 crores as salary. mahashay Dharampal Gulati was honoured  with the Padma Bhushan award for Trade and Industry. He is an example of dedication, hard work and believing in one’s capabilities. Humble beginnings never stopped him from setting up a spice empire!

5. Karsanbhai Patel:

Karsanbhai Patel started off by making detergent powder in his house backyard in Ahmedabad and went selling it from door to door. He offered a money back guarantee for every single pack that was sold. At that time, the cheapest detergent was priced at Rs. 13/ kg in the market and he offered his detergent for just Rs. 3/ kg. This helped him to target people of the middle and lower middle-income segment successfully. He is the man behind “Nirma” the company which started in the year 1969. Today, with a turnover of more than 7000 crores and more than 18000 employees, he has also been listed in Forbes in 2017 with a net worth of about USD 3.6 billion. He also set up the Nirma Institute of Technology in Ahmedabad in 1995.

It is rightly said that “Success is not about what you accomplish in life, it’s about what you inspire others to do”. Armed with technology and the constant developments in this area, today’s generation faces a much more challenging scenario where creativity and innovation is the need of the hour. In such situations, it is very important to understand that there is no substitute to hard work and dedication.

There are many more examples of people who made it big in different areas, and who have been inspirations to many, for e.g. Sunil Mittal. These individuals and their achievements are constant reminders of courage, belief, and dedication to everyone. However, the bottom line is that no matter how arduous the journey is, one must never give up!
