A young entrepreneur from Delhi quits his job at the British Council to run a tea stall

From a farmer’s son to an MBA Chai Val owner, Prafull Billore is the epitome of entrepreneurial success. With his chain of coffee shops in over 200 Indian cities, he not only creates over 1000 jobs but is also an inspiration to many aspiring entrepreneurs. Now, Sharmistha Ghosh, MA English Chaivali, is the latest to join the ‘Chai’ gang.

Sharmistha is a postgraduate in English. She left a well-paid job at the British Council and now runs a small tea stall on wheels in Gopinath Bazar in Delhi Cantt.

She is assisted by her dear friend Bhavna Rao, who works with Lufthansa. Mrs. Ghosh’s house help also comes and helps her in the evening. Her inspiring story was shared by retired Indian Army Brigadier Sanjay Khanna on his LinkedIn.

Sharing the story of MS Ghosh, Mr. Khanna wrote, “NO JOB IS TOO SMALL OR BIG BUT YOU HAVE TO DREAM BIG!!!!”

“A few days ago I happened to be in Gopinath Bazar in Delhi Cantt and I wanted to have tea. I was amazed and pleasantly surprised to see a smart English speaking woman operating this small tea stall on wheels (popularly called Raidee).”

“She mentioned that her name was Sharmista Ghosh, a postgraduate in English literature and she also worked at the British Council library until she quit her job to pursue her dream. Her friend, Bhavna Rao who works with Lufthansa is also a joint partner in the management of this small tea stall. Further, from now on, she gives extra pay to her domestic help because she employed her in the tea stall. They gather in the evening and operate from a small temporary structure and return,” Khanna wrote.

He continued, “I’m writing this post and also uploading this photo with her permission because I feel it can’t be called a low/small job and such people must be highlighted to motivate others. You must have the passion and integrity to work towards your dream to achieve it. I have come across many highly qualified youths who are desperate and looking for a suitable job commensurate with their professional stature. This message goes to them. I strongly feel that one must not Keep thinking about the high qualifications and the top job you deserve, but think about the small ways and means to achieve and flourish in the long term.”

Meanwhile, Sharmista Ghosh attributes her success to her parents and family members and dreams of making it big like Chaiios, another famous tea stall.
