‘Never underestimate the power of an Indian man’; In 1893, Mahatma Gandhi because of his insult from the white men in South Africa who located him out of the first class train carriage due to racial discrimination, was world recognized Mahatma Gandhi as the ‘Father of Nation’ as he and his nonviolent ways of protest called ‘Satyagraha’ lead India to be free from British rulers. Similarly, as a young boy from Jamnagar when Snehal Prajapati worked as a supplier of candle lights and empty cement bags, be was several times financially exploited by the factory owners who were unaware that their insult was acting like cement that was concretizing Snehal Prajapati’s vision of being ‘The best businessman with his factory having a modern state of art technology’.
Prajapati began as a labor in a brass industry but his sharp observational skills helped him learn the minute details of the entire workings of the industry. Around the age of 18 years, he started his own set-up that intended to manufacture specialized products of brass components. Prajapati borrowed an amount of 50,000 rupees from his mother’s lifetime savings for the investment required to begin the business. Thus, in 1992 he founded his first venture ‘Shiv Om Brass’.
Prajapati’s hard-work convinced his family friend Ashish Radhadiya in the bright future of the company. Hence, Radlrndiya associated himself with Shiv Om Brass in 1995 and invested a decent amount for the expansion of the business.
Prajapati suffered a huge loss due to a Chennai based customer bankruptcy and the struggle kept its clutches on until 11th September 1996. That day changed his life; Snehal Prajapati was blessed with a daughter and the same day he received his biggest order from Railway Contracts.
