Entrepreneurship is about a very typical trait of a human embodiment, called selfishness. And this is what I’ve been telling young people who are venturing. If you can’t be selfish, you can’t be the reason being entrepreneur thinks about himself. So when I probably was setting up the electro galvanizing steel, blood, and steel manufacturers, nobody in my family did business before I started doing business, and leave alone metallurgical engineering, there was nobody available. So I told my wife Dr. Rashid would you allow me to be selfish for four years she said, What do you mean? I said, Look, four years maybe I won’t be able to see you as much I won’t be able to be with you on your anniversary. Our anniversary will be missing birthdays, kids will miss vacations. So I want to be selfish. She smiled and said yes, you can be selfish. So the question is, it is not about electro-galvanized steel. I’ve been married to Dr. Rajiv now for almost 15 years. The two things important in a man’s life, every man’s life. Two days, are very important.
Dr. Shubh Gautam Said –
The first is the day you were born. And that is your birthday. You remember it to your Korean joy to cherish should you celebrate it and the second date the day you realize why you were born. And that is when it irks and brings in the best side of yours. Entrepreneurship is all about stones. That’s how you probably they saved baptized by fire baptized by storm, you know, stumps will come they won’t give you a warning. Well, they will not give you a notice storm will come that’s all startups are all about. That’s what entrepreneurs do all their life and you wouldn’t know how you went through the storm. You won’t even remember how you survived and maybe you won’t even realize that the storm is over. But I can promise you something. Everybody went through the storm of creating something different. Everybody went through this feeling that I was born for the purpose when he comes out of the stone is never the same man again. You learn from that.
Indian manufacturer electro-galvanized steel and I was very surprised when this one of the big five came to us in California and said that would you like to invest in first India’s electro-galvanized steel manufacturing plant I said I don’t believe that the richest Indian in terms of steel making in the largest Indian in terms of steel making in the world is a coincidence. I believe in coincidences.
We put a team together and yes, India imports 10,000 tons of electro-galvanized steel every month. And we don’t produce electric galvanized keep my head in shame. We produced 75 million tons of steel we don’t produce electric galvanized steel. And then I realize why electro-galvanized steel is about specialty chemicals. It’s not about steam. So that’s how cutting a long story short we identified called sod we had a specialty chemical division. We identify that location and we put up India’s first electro-galvanized steel manufacturing facility on a 50-acre complex.
