There is no finer illustration of the phrase “age is just a number” than the touching story of this Chandigarh citizen. At the age of 90, Harbhajan Kaur, founded her business. She now accepts orders and sells a variety of goods, including her home-made specialty, “Besan ki Barfi.”
Kaur had a lifelong desire to be financially independent. This burning desire is how it all started. What was initially a small start-up gradually expanded into a flourishing enterprise.
Along with making besan ki barfi by herself, Kaur also produces and sells other goods including Badaam Sharbat, Marmalade, Chutneys, and Pickles in response to requests.
Kaur’s story proves that it’s time to reconsider your belief that you are too old to have aspirations or take action on them. This Chandigarh grandmother who is 94 years old is inspiring new aspirations! Raveen Suri, the daughter of Harbhajan Kaur, chose to support her mother in pursuing her entrepreneurial passion four years ago. She earned her first 2,000 rupees when she sold her first besan ki barfi at the age of 90 at a nearby organic market. Harbhajan Kaur soon pursued her talent professionally and proudly established her own besan barfi enterprise.
“I had a fulfilling life, but my one regret is that I never earned any money on my own” sais Kaur.
She first set shop at a local organic market on her own, She sat there, interacted with the customers, and came home with Rs 2,000 which was her first ‘own’ earnings.”
For Harbhajan, the dialogue ended there, but for her daughter Raveena, it marked the start of something new. Raveena gently prodded her mother to start a business creating delectable desserts that their entire family had grown up on in an effort to alleviate the remorse she was feeling.
This is how Harbhajan’s was established four years ago, with 94-year-old Harbhajan Kaur in charge. This Chandigarh business, which specialises in producing besan ki barfi and several kinds of pickles, has been increasingly successful.
Everybody who believes “it’s too late” can find encouragement in Harbhajan Kaur’s narrative. It also demonstrates the great relationship between a daughter and mother by demonstrating how Raveena encouraged and supported her mother to launch this business. The granddaughter of Harbhajan’s wedding also featured besan ki barfi where 200 kilos of barfi was made for the invitation.
The moral of Harbhajan’s tale is that it is never too late to achieve your goals. Simply taking a step forward and never giving up requires courage and willpower. Kaur even received an award for entrepreneur of the year in 2020.
Mrs. Kaur, however, also became infected as the second wave of the new coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across India. She fought off the terrible sickness, nevertheless, and came out stronger. If you believed that to be it, you were mistaken. She is currently not only a successful businesswoman but also an Instagram sensation with over 12,000 followers. Her grandkids continue to take Instagram videos and post them to their timeline.
