Son of a pharmacist (compounder) from Begusarai in Bihar otherwise came from a humble family background. As a child, he had to sleep hungry on many nights. Even while doing MBA he worked at a tea shop, because it offered the opportunity of a free breakfast. He could not afford to pay for the lunch and sold caps outside the masjid to pay for his education. As such he virtually had a zero bank balance when he started but then he had had the right ideas and knowledge of technology. And never looked back.

According to Abhishek Bachan, Executive Director of AIAC, “The AIAC award was instituted in 1989 by the All India Achievers Conference. It is conferred on a few and rare people who have really worked hard to achieve and excel in their field of activity.”
