How I became an Entrepreneur – a story of a 13-years child.
My mother always liked to make her morning tea with fresh milk. And as a child, I had taken most of her this habit. I still remember when, as a school going 13-year-old kid living in Jabalpur city, 365 days of the year, my day would start at 6:30 am (except for the days I fell sick or pretend to be sick). A Milk Dairy, which was 3 km away, was used to close at 7 am. Therefore every day, I was made to get up at 6:30 am to go and get fresh buffalo milk for Mom’s morning tea.
