This post is the best example to demonstrate ‘looks are deceptive’
I have always seen Sohanbhai sit at the shop with the same safari suit and the same hat. Would never have guessed how wealthy and enterprising he and his family are.
– Eldest son – Sohanbhai + 7 sons +3 daughters
– Sohanbhai’s eldest son Rajnish + 1 son +2 daughters
Upon chatting with Sohanbhai, I was surprised about the story he told me about his family. The joint family (Fatehlal plus 8 sons and their children) consists of 45 members ,living in a haveli, with 22 rooms and eating from one kitchen!
The family now owns 10 shops, 2 cinema houses, 2 hotels plus land, factory, etc etc. Each son has a provision of one plot of land, incase they want to build their house individually.
When I asked him why he still sits at the tiny shop, he replied ‘we learnt the abcd of business from this place, how can we leave this?’ 🙂
