EXPATRIATES IN MAURITIUS
» 31 Jan 2017
LIFESTYLE

HELLO, WHERE DO YOU HAIL FROM?
I was born on the Indian Independence Day, 15th august in the year 1975. I studied in Wynberg Allen School, a Boarding school in the hills of Mussoorie in India, graduated with a bachelor of Business Management and then completed by Masters in Business management from The Institute of management studies in Ghaziabad, India. I then joined the family business in the paper industry.
I got married in 2000 with my college sweetheart of 6 years. She gave me two lovely kids Chahek, our girl in 2002 and Harshal, our boy in 2003.
I am a simple and common man.
HOW WAS YOUR CHILDHOOD IN INDIA?
My childhood memories are mainly of my boarding school days and friends I made there and the unbelievable bond we guys share till date. Growing up together day and night that’s bound to happen.
One of the most funny childhood memories consisted of grabbing the bowl of ‘Dal’ on our respective tables, in our meals in the dining hall. Even before the prayer finished and ‘Amen” was pronounced some smart Alec would have already grabbed the bowl first ☺. Other fond childhood memories of flying kites, playing marbles, ‘pithhu’, are still alive.
Proposing a girl to become your girlfriend used to be another hilarious act. Making long stories, planning, being scared, etc.
HAVE YOU HAD ANY LIFE CHANGING LESSONS?
A big lesson learnt is - Sometimes in life we are left with what we actually are within. If we are strong and have a will to achieve, anything is possible. Road to success is very very difficult. But perseverance will get you there, is what I learnt.
My brother has always been there to support me, but then in the end it’s you yourself who decides and are on your own.
The best life changing event in my life was my marriage, I married my best friend and she has been my best asset and support till date.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO MAURITIUS?
I came to Mauritius in 2007, to sell my Paper machines and assist a paper recycling project in Mauritius. It was in the exhibition organized by SMEDA. It was then that the Minister of Industry at that time approached me to do it myself and promised all support.
I liked the idea and saw an opportunity and came here with my family and started working on it and invested in the project.
TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY
We collect waste paper from across the island and bring it to our factory in Cluny. We recycle the same and make paper from it. The same paper is used to make cartons, paper bags, envelopes, files, etc.
We are a 100% green company and clean Mauritius by recycling the waste paper. With some more benefits that we might get from the government we can be a better company and do more good for Mauritius at large.
WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT?
I love to travel and explore. I love to meet new people and socialize.
My passion in life is to make it big and take all people associated with me right up there with me.
I wish to bring in many more projects to Mauritius which would benefit the country.
Another passion is cricket. I have played a lot of cricket and still do. I wish to reinvent Mauritius into a cricket playing nation and make Mauritius a cricket hub for International matches. We have everything here, just need the means.
GIVE US A GLIMPSE AT AN AVERAGE DAY IN YOUR BUSY LIFE:
I start a bit late say by 10 am. And also finish late by 7pm. I enjoy to work, especially when you get results. Between 10-7 is all work and work. Though I move around at will.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT LIVING HERE?
The weather, the hospitable people, quiet life & no hustle bustle. I can spend more time with my family here, than back home in India.
Visiting the sea side here with family is amazing, with lovely weather and beautiful sceneries.
The traffic sense here is amazingly good when I compare it to the maddening Delhi Traffic. I know if ever I am in ambulance I will reach the hospital getting priority on the roads. This does not happen in Delhi.
Distances here are negligible and in an hour you can reach from anywhere to anywhere.
Everything seems very systematic here.
In one word if I have to sum it up.
Mauritius is “Paradise”
