How a blind street vendor built a multi-crore business | Bhavish Bhatia | Sunrise Candles

Bhavish Bhatia, a telephone operator, was only 20 years old when he lost his eyesight and job in a hotel. Soon his mother also died. Now there was no source of income and the passion to do something was definitely there. He did not have the light in his eyes, but in order to light the houses of others, he started candle-making training in 1999. They make and sell candles in the local market. Which was the market of Mahabaleshwar.

It was very difficult, to melt the wax and used the same utensils for cooking. Bhavish says, remembering the old days when some mischievous people picked up their candles and threw them in the gutter. After a lot of struggle, his life changed when he met Neeta who is his wife. He would go to malls with his wife and touch and feel different types of candles which were quite mehndi.
That’s how he did market research and started making a lot of variety of candles.
