We all familiar with the statement “padhoge likhoge tho banoge mahan, kheloge kudoge toh banoge saitan(If you study you will become great)” But we all know in today’s era sports are also at top-level and it does not require any degree. I guess probably we all watched a movie that is “M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story” which is based on the life of the cricketer Dhoni, In which we all know he is not that academically qualified, but he is an inspiration of many.
And in India, there are lots of people who are an inspiration without any degree. But we all know about them, So today I want to talk about a person who is also an inspiration of many poor students who cannot afford to study in any reputed institution of India, but still, they can do much better. A boy from a village in Madhya Pradesh named Prafull Billore Now who is the best chai seller of India with turnover in cr0res.
Four years ago, Praful Billore, a 20-year student who graduated and wanted to study in a prestigious college in India, but unfortunately he did not get any seat. He came to Ahmedabad to overcome the disappointment of not getting any seat with the thought of starting a business.
Within three months, he set up a roadside tea stall with the help of the money which he borrowed from his father for study-related reasons. And he christened the shop with a quirky name ” MBA CHAIWALA (tea stall)” ( MBA stands for ” Mr.Billore Ahmedabad )
On the first day, he made a sale of Rs 150, and there has been no looking back since his business took off. Although he suffered lots of problems during this, he overcame it, one of his problems was hiding the truth from his father, that he started to sell chai instead of studying. He has tried many new things; including selling tea at political rallies, naming the tea after the programmers initiated by the parties, and by FY 2019-20, the turnover had touched 3 crores.
Praful’s business model grabbed the attention of the media and he was invited to address the students at IIM Ahmedabad, where he had dreamed of study once.
Inspiration to anyone who has not achieved his dream, but they will become an inspiration of many. He lost his seat but not his faith to become a good and successful person. He started his own business and dreamed a new dream and achieved it, today he shares his story in the various platform to inspire everyone to start and search new things in your life if you are not able to achieve that you planned for.
In fact he started earing while studying B.COM, Praful made a mark as an ace Amway salesman earning up to Rs 25,000 per month.
“I was able to balance work and studies because an average student has a lot of time in his hands to do other experiments since he doesn’t have to worry about studying too hard and competing with the toppers,” he chuckles. He totally focused on his business and engages a team to work with him.
Really a true inspiration for us.
