The CEO of Zerodha Praises His Father-In-Law’s Grocery Store As “The Best Example Of How To Lead A Good Life.” : Nithin Kamath, the CEO of Zerodha, believes in the latter, and for a very good reason—after all, the businessman is learning life lessons from a veteran who has been leading a happy life.
The CEO of Zerodha, Nithin Kamath Praises His Father-In-Law’s Grocery Store As “The Best Example Of How To Lead A Good Life.”
The founder and CEO of Zerodha recently revealed the motivational life story of his father-in-law, retired Indian Army officer Shivaji Patil, who is still a man of regularity and work ethics at the age of 70.
On Monday, Kamath posted the moving tale to Twitter for the benefit of his followers. Zerodha boss shared a photo of his father-in-law along with the statement that Patil won’t retire despite his daughter and her husband’s financial achievement.
The CEO of Zerodha Nithin Kamath disclosed that after his father-in-law suffered frostbite during the Kargil War, he voluntarily left the army and opened a grocery store in Belgaum, Karnataka.
Even now, at the age of 70, he still frequently rides his outdated scooter to the neighbourhood market to buy supplies for the shop.
He is 70 years old, but he frequently rides his decades-old scooter for the differently abled to the neighbourhood market to get supplies for the shop. My mother-in-law, who assists him in managing the house and running the shop, is his only source of assistance, Kamath noted on Twitter.
When questioned about the state of his shop’s business, Patil, who refuses to give up, always has a sparkle in his eyes.
He still has a sparkle in his eye when I inquire about the margins for various items in the store. He mentions making a 25% profit on chikkis by purchasing a box for Rs 200 and selling each one for Rs 250, the boss of Zerodha said.
Kamath has learned from Patil’s attitude what actual contentment implies and how it leads to real freedom. Even regarding losing his fingers in the war, Kamath continued, “I have never seen him desire anything or moan.
Patil did make an effort to get Kamath to do anything back in 2007. In 2007, while I was still having trouble, I asked him for permission to marry his daughter. At the time, he did try to get me to pursue a career in the government.
Watching his father-in-law live a contented life without grumbling or making many demands has provided Kamath with many of the answers to his questions about how to lead a long and happy life.
“I have been obsessing over topics like how to prolong excellent health or how to lead fulfilling lives until the end. I am certain that the solution is to be content and to constantly engage in mental and physical activity. He is the perfect example of something that money cannot buy, according to the CEO of Zerodha.
