Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

In the morning when I am walking down to office, I encounter a person who would not be less than 60 years old, frail, thin, tattered clothes. Pushing a cycle that looks older than him, he is on the rounds selling "kotha-miru". His hoarse call rarely brings a housewife out to buy a few rupees of this product, but he plods on with shaky steps.

To me he is the real "start-up", the Make-in-India, who is an entrepreneur even at his age, braving the sun and rain. He holds his head high and survives on whatever he earns. He does not have any angel-investors or venture capitalists. But he makes our food healthy and tasty
