What is your first name?
Does Your name have any significant or sentimental meaning?
My grandfather named me. I lost my father a few months before I was born. He was a great leader, loved by everyone in the community due to his kindness and willingness to always help fellow dwellers of the village. He participated in various community services just to make sure everyone lived happily. He later fell ill and lost his life. This was why I was named Khan – “Leader, Ruler, Nobleman”
What is your background/heritage and why is it important to you?
I’m Hindu. I lost my father before I was born. Family members deserted us. All the burden of upbringing me and my 3 other siblings was left for my mother. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t easy at all. Had to do lots of petty chores, sell wares to survive. I used it as a good opportunity to train myself. Hard work, patience, focus, dedication, commitment, and perseverance. These are the traits every man needs to be successful.
What is the most challenging experience you have faced or are currently facing in your life and how did you/are you facing that challenge?
My most challenging experience was when I was young. Lots of nights going to bed without food, wearing tattered clothes, and so forth. It wasn’t a really good experience to be proud of. That was why I made up my mind that I will try as much as possible to bring up my family in a better way, compared to how I was brought up. I made up my mind to always strive hard to come out top in anything I do. After saving some money, I left my village to learn a trade in the city. I started my business later on, which later transformed into something big today. I am proud to say I am a successful entrepreneur today.
What do you think will make the world a better place and what role can you play?
I think the world will be a better place if we learn to deal with every situation as it comes. The fact that things are not good today doesn’t mean tomorrow will not better. Always believe in yourself, keep working hard, remain focused, and be optimistic. This is the path to success.
What do you wish others would know about you that they cannot tell on the surface?
That I am hard working and focused. I also believe in being different to the rest. This is my main selling point. As a business minded person, I offer my services in such a way that you simply have to keep patronizing. I will like everyone to emulate this quality of mine.
