This is a story of Nagpur’s businessman Pyare Khan. Pyare, who once sold orange at a railway station, today owns a company with a turnover of Rs 400 crore. He has shared his entire journey of success with us.
There was a house in the slum area, mother used to run a grocery shop I lived with my two brothers, sister, and mother-father in the slum area of Nagpur. Father used to go to villages and sell clothes, but if he could not earn anything, then he stopped that work. Then the mother started a grocery store to raise the children. We used to earn money from the small shop we were able to live with.
From the age of 12-13, I started working outside. During the two months of summer vacation, they used to spend entire work only. Used to sell oranges at the railway station. 50-60 rupees were saved every day. Many small things were also done, such as cleaning carts.
After failing on the 10th, then I decided to leave the studies because there were no such conditions at home that I could study. When I got a driving license, I started working as a driver in a courier company. During this time, when I had an accident, he also left work.
Sold mother’s jewelry to buy Auto. Then a few days later a rental auto started operating. After driving a rental auto for a few years, I felt that if I had my own auto, the savings would be more. Mother sold her jewelry and gave 11 thousand rupees. I bought the auto after financing the rest. 200 to 300 rupees were saved every day by auto. This continued until 2001.
Such thoughts started coming in my mind that if I do not leave this job now, I will continue to do the same throughout my life. I dared to sell the auto for 42,500 rupees. This was the first major risk of my life because a fix income was made from the auto. Mother also refused to sell auto but I had the intention of doing something big.
One day Payre asked Seth that we rent a bus for a tour, if you buy my bus, will you hire? They will say yes. Then I raised money. Some planted themselves, some relatives gave and some took the bus from the bank. However, the bus did not last much and that work stopped in a few days.
Got a loan from the bank after a year round, changed life from here I was going round the banks because I had to buy my own truck. No bank was giving me a loan. They used to ask for the address of the house. If the house was in slum, no bank loan was approved. After trying for a year, I got a loan of Rs 11 lakh from a bank with great difficulty.
Relatives said return the truck to the bank. You will not be able to do this work. I went to the accident site and brought the truck. Get the driver admitted. After getting the truck made, I again landed on the road. Explained to the bank that such an accident has happened, there is a problem of two-three months and then I will start the installment. After this my work started running.
Bought one truck in 2005. By 2007, Pyare had ten to twelve trucks. Then I got my company registered. Truly my work started in 2007. I started working in places where others were afraid to do it. Took a lot of risks. Gradually, I started getting the work of big groups. A few years ago two petrol pumps were also opened.
Today it has a turnover of over 400 crores. There are more than 700 employees. In the next two years, we have set a target to reach the company to one thousand crores. I have never run after success but I have run after work. He did not leave without completing the work he was engaged in and threw himself completely into it. This is the secret of my success.
