Govindnath Jogi, a cook not by choice but by chance. Married to Tulsi Ben at the age of 15, from a small town called Salumbar, which is about 90 km away from Udaipur, Rajasthan.

With fewer options to make a living in a small town, Govindnath left his wife behind and moved to Ahmedabad in search of a new life, a new beginning, truly hoping to transform his life in the years to come, not just for himself but for his family.

He had to start somewhere and he embraced what came his way. He started working with a home tiffin service provider where he started by delivering tiffins, because of his attitude to progress in life, he requested his owner to get into the kitchen to learn cooking. He started off by making rotis and later worked his way up to become a cook which earned him a little less than enough to bring his beloved wife to Ahmedabad to start a new chapter in their life.

Dinesh Jogi and Jai Jogi are two little boys of Govindnath and Tulsi Ben. Govindnath is now self-employed as an independent cook who works in selective client’s homes.

In pursuit of transforming his and his children’s lives, he ensured he worked every single day of his life, to earn enough to provide basic education to his children and a home for his family. Dinesh and Jai, two young and well-mannered boys truly understanding the reality of life and the hard work put in by their Father, ensured their Father’s efforts are not wasted.

THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs. You can shop for pet food, accessories, grooming essentials and even book online vet consultation for your pets. The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.
