The great Albert Einstein once said, “One sheet of paper never decides my future”. Likewise, Tejas Lengre neither bothered about studies nor his future as he believed in himself that he would achieve success in his own style. He is one of a kind.
Usually, students after completing Class X, think about their next phase of life, the turning point of their career. But Tejas Lengre had other tactical plans in place before making the biggest decision of dropping the school after passing Class X in 1999. Yes, he is a school dropout. You read it right!
There is a huge difference between a student studying in school with no ambition and the student dropping out of school with an ambition in mind. Tejas Lengre followed his heart. He preferred business over studies and this is how his venture kick-started.
Tejas is a resident of Bamni village in Sangli. Tejas carried goats in his auto for about a year. He had many thoughts about transforming his business with his innovative ideas and one such idea gave rise to a new evolution. He planned to start a modern goat farming business.
First of all, the money was a big factor for him to start the business. But that didn’t demoralize him. He initially borrowed some money from someone and then bought two goats of the African Bore species in a bid to start ‘Mahakali Bakra Farm’ near his home. This was the turning point of his career.
The confident Tejas expected a good start. Much to his belief, in a few years, his business clicked quite well wherein he started making lots of money. He made a profit of a significant amount of around 20-22 lakhs. Slowly, the numbers turned to 250 goats. Apart from selling goats, he also makes money from the dung compost as well.
Tejas takes special care to the animals as they are given grass for three meals a day. He mixes protein powder in water so that animals would increase its weight. After 21 days, animals are prescribed drug and injections so as to avoid illness and diseases.
Each goat is sold for around one lakh rupees and Tejas has more than 100 goats of African bore species whose weight reaches 120 to 150 kg in a year. He is earning 1 crore per month according to the Marketing Mind. Never did Tejas go to the market to sell his goats. Customers pay a visit to his farm and have a deal. Especially during Eid-Ul-Azha, Tejas’ goats are sold for a handsome price tag, where his business saw an epic inflation.
