Threads of my Life – My First Rug

It is often said that nature uses only the longest threads to weave her designs, so that each small portion of her fabric divulges the organization of the entire textile. My love affair with weaving began in 1978. I started my career selling shoes from a little shop that my father had started. I observed that there was very little room to grow and I was offered a full time job in a nationalized bank. I declined the offer as I wanted to do something of my own where I could enjoy what I do. I was drawn to the art of weaving, as I often observed weavers transposing.

Passion in Work

When I visit various colleges, as a guest speaker I usually share my story of starting a company to pursue work that I am passionate about. After the lecture gets over, most of the questions revolve around “How can I work and be passionate about it at the same time?” While some other people usually ask “how can passion and work go together”. Most of these people are confused about work and passion. We are so occupied with mundane daily activities of work that we often forget to focus on why we are doing what we are doing?
