This wonderful news come to us from Ludhiana, India
We have seen many businesses with the prefix ‘sons’ and ‘brothers’ that depicts the lineage and family history. Daughters and sisters have not been made a part of the family businesses in India and thus a businessman from Ludhiana thought about bringing a new trend and setting an example.
Aged 54, Manoj Kumar Gupta, a contractor from Ludhiana named his medical store ‘Gupta and Daughters’. A proud moment for the entire Gupta family, Manoj Kumar Gupta’s daughter is proud of her father and his thinking. Manoj already has a construction business running under the name ‘Gupta and Sons’. It was three years back that he went forward with a second business venture, a charitable medical store and he named his daughter as the proprietor.
Gupta also told that his family was happy on hearing about the name of the store but they were all worried about how it would sound and what would be the reaction of the public. His daughter Akansha is a law student and she is extremely proud of her father’s equality thinking. Her brother who is an MBA by profession also applauded his father’s thinking and said that it was since childhood that he was taught to treat his sister as his equal.
Gupta feels that it was his parents’ teachings and upbringing that made him think this way. He also said that his wife has been a great support and it is she who has kept this thought rooted into the hearts of the family members.
Mr. Gupta has definitely taken the “Beta Bachao Beti Padhao” campaign a step forward and if there are more people in our nation who think likewise, India would stand in a different league altogether.
