Dr. M.K. Shingari

Born in 1942 amidst the turmoil of the partition of British India, the author’s family migrated from Pakistan to India when he was just five years old. He began his education under a neem tree in Aligarh, completed his 10th standard there, and later graduated from Delhi University with a focus on Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

Financial constraints forced him to work instead of pursuing an engineering degree in India. Dissatisfied with a Government job in Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh, he moved to the UK, where he achieved his dream, earning M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering on a full scholarship by 1972.

Returning to India, he founded his own company, pioneering the "Make in India" initiative long before it became a National campaign. For 52 years, his company has thrived, earning him Life time Achievement Awards and recognition for his technical contributions.

At 82, he continues to follow his routine of Exercises, Gardening, Medical care, Factory Management etc. in a strict disciplined way daily from 4 AM to 8 PM, aspiring to celebrate his 100th birthday with friends. His life is a testament to Resilience, Innovation, and Enduring Spirit.
