Kochi: Rarely one comes across someone who depends on odd jobs to make his both ends meet despite being born in a wealthy family. Here is an example that will leave you totally surprised. However, after reading it completely you will definitely derive a very positive message out of it. The story was first published in The Times of India.
It is a story of a Surat-based businessman whose company worth is Rs 6,000 crore and commands presence in 71 countries. He asked his 21-year old son to relocate to Kochi incognito and survive on odd jobs to earn his living for a month.
Thereafter, his son Dravya Dholakia who is currently pursuing MBA in the US and on a holiday in India reached Kochi. He just carried three pair of clothes and Rs 7,000 with him.
The only reason behind all this was to make Dravya understand hardships of life and struggles that a poor goes through in absence of money.
Dholakia is the same businessman who had hit newspaper headlines after his company gifted cars and apartments to employees in form of bonus.
