For me money means a lot not because I need the whole money for my own pocket or bank account BUT because I need to pay every person, every vendor, every supplier in my team on time, that is actually the basic need of every human being other than air, water & food
Why I shifted myself back to Amritsar while still my business is in Jaipur too? As a startup, after 1 year In 2015 we tried for VC funding(Venture Capital) & were supposed to get 4Cr from Rajasthan Venture Capital fund. We hired an expert in our team, she was expat from Singapore. Everything was going as per plan and was on dot… But at the last moment we were refused fund because I being a founder belonged to Amritsar & we were having our home & immovable assets in Punjab only. Our businesses were growing there also but we needed funds to maintain the momentum Papaji then our Senior Director tried a lot to sell off our properties in Amritsar but we were not getting any of the good prices because we needed it more quickly to show on books with VC with whom also the funds were limited and it was huge competition among those who applied for it.
I remember the days I had to miss many team mates, to many i referred another of my known companies and to many we agreed to get the work from them on part time basis. A senior guy was very helpful in setting up things for us in Amritsar, in our team came along with us who belonged to Varanasi, (got another good opportunity & now works at a good position in Noida) I have been even with wet eyes for days and nights…Missing people who became just like my own family Sacrifices is another name of Startups, some sacrificed for me & I sacrificed for some. Coming back to Amritsar, Best People I have loosed by now, now only their memories are with me:
My Pet Rusty
My cousin Sumeer(Tinku) who gave us his project immediately when we came back to Amritsar
My chachi ji who usually came to us at our home asking me every time about the status of my company
Sunil uncle ji – (money lender) – to whom I went many times for 1 or 2 lakh whenever i was in short of money
Our first local client from Jaipur Verma ji of Sunrays Energies who left us due to covid-19
But Coming here to Amritsar has been beneficial so far in financial matters because every bank is ready to fund us as we have our parental properties here Few management people and technical alliances still work from Jaipur to give us backup of work every time, Expanded our working members and teams to Lucknow, Indore, Chandigarh also From the VC refusal I learnt that One thing for sure… that everything is not sure It is only the efforts in our hands, we can forecast many financial figures, project plans BUT 100% is never in our hands
I hope you enjoy reading Please God bless us all Om Sai Ram 🙏 Mudiit Gupta
P.s : Missing my father in law Shri Tilak Raj Ji ( whom we still do not believe that has left us in Covid-19)

Happy : ) to see the prices being seen back to low of many items including edible oils. Seems Inflation which was seen in the recent past is in correction now.
Hopefully all other items will also be normalised back and will ease the household budgets.
Low prices are always good for all. For a family person low prices are good because then we can afford more of other items and can enjoy money saved on other things and as a business person it is good that our employed people will not ask frequent raises in the salary.
As per me stable economy is always best, as fluctuations spoil every budget even at margin level.
But natural that Worries will not end till you live, worries will keep on changing also, as a sincere student you are worried for getting good marks, as a employee you will be worried for career and higher salary, as a parent you will be worried for your own kids and so on.
All the above worries are simple worries.
Now let me tell you complex worries. Worries of a poor if you have seen are for food, clothing and shelter. Worries of a patient are to live few years more. Worries of a Jobless are to get any job so that he starts earning.
Worries are if you have debt but no money to give to your lenders. Worries are for survival of relationships. Worries are that drought or flood should not happen. Worries are like Afganistan is facing nowadays. There are endless complex worries too which anyone can face. Worries are if Indians do not vote to Modi ji again then India can go to wrong hands.
Let us Pray God to give enough courage for simple worries and end any Complex worries and pray that we never need to face these.

I dont feel like giving my money to anyone whom I do not like because it is my hard earned money and reputation, I cannot give it to any loose hands…. So I think a lot days and nights before giving a single job to anyone
