Excellent advice

A BBC story on the golden jubilee of a co-operative – Lijjat Papad:

The “seven sisters”, as they are fondly remembered, started production with the princely sum of 80 rupees (now $1.50), borrowed from a good Samaritan, Chaganlal Karamsi Parekh, a social worker with entrepreneurial brains.

Mrs Popat pays handsome tribute to Mr Parekh’s contribution to their success story.

“He advised us that if we wanted to experience success, never accept donations. We have never ignored his advice.”
