From the Heart to Hearts
Today, the big banyan tree that gives shade was once a green straw which had come out of earth. Today this flowing river was once water fall coming out of the chest of mountain but be that a waterfall or river, the nature of both of them remained the same—flowing for the sake of others. I know Mr. Ramesh Agarwal since the time he was a young man who had the desire to move ahead. Whenever he would go to Hissar from his village, he used to bring tea leaves, sleepers, shoes etc. from Hissar. He used to sell these things on a bicycle in the villages. That is how he used to contribute funds for his studies and for meeting household expenses. This way, Ramesh Ji, who had risen from the ground, was different from other boys his mind always had the desire to do something big. He always had the dreams in his eyes to do something that would give him satisfaction. In 1977, I use to go to Nalwa from Hissar for the purpose of doing the work of the Sangh. There, I met Ramesh Ji. He used to go villages like Khanak, Balawas and Ratera on bicycle for giving to the service to the nation. While doing work of the Sangh, the mind of young Ramesh came up with an idea that something should be done for the country and so he got inducted in the Indian Air Force. In 1986, while coming back from the defence he got nearly one lakh rupees. He contributed one-half of it to war widows. In fact, if you want to understand the benefit of giving, it can be understood from the personality of Ramesh Ji. The effect of his sensitive and liberal personality was so much high that whatever business he got into, flourished by leaps and bounds. People used to trust him due to his dedication and fact-based working. In 1987, Squadron Leader Subhash Gupta (a former officer) was transferred from Dudigal (Hyderabad) to Balasore (Odisha). He put this problem of transport of household items (from one air force station to another) before Ramesh Ji. Ramesh Ji did that job with such perfection that the job of transporting household goods from one station to another (whenever an officer was transferred) was given to him only. From here, the foundation of Agarwal Packers-Movers was laid. His younger brother, Rajendra Agarwal and his wife, Mrs. Manju Agarwal, became his supporters in this business. She is running home as well as cooperating with her children (Ritika and Navneet) in process of running the business even today the secrets behind the success of Ramesh Ji are—simplicity, humility, truthfulness and taking every one along to get the goal. He always thinks that he could help someone. His power comes from his dedication to patriotism, society, village, neighbourhood, serving the poor, cow and education.
