“We often set a lot of expectations in life but sometimes when things don’t go as planned, we end up losing hope in the future. Well, I have faced a similar situation in the past.
I was a farmer and had an agricultural land of two acres in our village in Jangaon. Within a couple years after marriage, we suffered major losses due to scanty rainfall and seemingly overnight, life changed.
But that’s when my friend suggested to move to Hyderabad for a living. I was living life on my own in the past but suddenly I had to work under someone. But I must thank my wife as not even once during that phase she lost hope in me and we both decided to start something small, once things settle down.
Initially, I thought of selling fruits but I later decided to start a bhel on the roadside. It wasn’t an easy journey though.
It’s been more than 10 years since I started this business and by god’s grace, I am able to provide for my family. My wife is the biggest support in my journey so far and every day, she comes here to help me in the evening. There’s no ‘me’ or ‘she’ with us. It’s always ‘we’ and that’s what kept us going forward in life.
