A remark made by his mother when he was barely a teenager still brings a smile to Dilip Suryavanshi’s face. His father was in the police department and the family had to undergo the torture of him being transferred almost every other year. The challenge of getting the children into new schools and adjusting to a new environment meant Suryavanshi’s mother eventually ran out of patience. “Khud, kuch karo,” Janaki Devi would often snap in frustration. “I don’t think she advised me to start my own business but that’s what I ended up doing. There was no joy in working for someone,” says the 61-year-old, who today is the chairman and managing director of Bhopal-based Dilip Buildcon.
