She Got Inspired By Prafull Billore aka ‘MBA Chaiwala’

Tuktuki gave away free tea to many of her clients on the opening day of her tea shop as a gesture of her gratitude & Happiness.

Earlier Her Family Was Unhappy with Her Decision

Tuktuki's parents weren’t sure about the concept of selling tea. They expressed their sentiments with their educated daughter's decision to operate a Chai Counter.

Tuktuki began persuading her parents that starting her own business was not easy for her. "Initially, I was not satisfied with her decision, we educated her with the expectation that she would become a teacher, but she ended up choosing to sell tea." I paused for a moment, thinking to myself, "If this is her decision to become self-sufficient, then that's great." Said Tuktuki Das's father, Prashanto Das.

Tuktuki was always very confident of her idea to open a tea stall and now, just as her inspiration Prafull Billore aka ‘MBA Chaiwala’ did, even she hopes to expand her idea to many places & become a Successful Entrepreneur.
