It was indeed a moment of pride for all of us as a family. Highly educated engineers after having trained and gotten work experience in US come back with a mission nearly 3 decades ago and later joined by their children to set up a project in unfriendly environment where entrepreneurship breeding is not a norm , is really commendable. Many talk about it but very few can really do it for many reasons.
They would never compromise on values for pursuing their goals.
