This is the story of Dindayal Gupta and the company he built—Dollar Industries.
A young boy made his way from a corner of modern-day Haryana to what was then the city of Calcutta, to live and build a dream. A dream to provide clothing essentials to society across the region, be it large cities or small towns. This is the story of how Dindayal Gupta rewrote the rules of the hosiery industry, identifying and producing goods for the buyer on a budget and the shopper ready to spend. He met associates who grudged him his success, and partners who helped him grow. He developed brands and companies, products and practices alike, in his quest. As his business grew, he was blessed with a family of talented sons who aided further growth. In parallel, he underwent a personal, spiritual transformation, inspired by the Arya Samaj and its message of social equity and reform. This book is essential reading—for his personal journey and its relevance to society.
