A person who was employed as an ordinary worker in a tobacco factory soon learnt the entire art of the business and set up his own factory. He initially invested only Rs. 5000/- in his business but then by dint of fifteen years’ hard work, his business progressively increased until it expanded into a big factory.

It has been a fifteen-year struggle.”
