Description

125 years ago, Ardeshir Godrej, a young man of 29 years, set up a small factory in Lalbaug in Bombay to make locks - the first of its kind in India. This was the humble origin of what today has become a trusted household name—‘Godrej’.

Ardeshir Burjorji Godrej dealt with personal tragedy and many disappointments before finding his true calling - making complex mechanisms for locks. As an inventor, who was infuriated by India’s impoverishment at the hands of the British, the call to action of the Swadeshi Movement resonated deeply with him. Pirojsha expanded the business further, while being careful of quality, customer satisfaction and worker’s welfare. The story of the Godrej family, which started with Ardeshir and Pirojsha, is a tale of courage, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Srinivas Rao commented on Ardeshir and Pirojsha Godrej from Ardeshir and Pirojsha Godrej: This story actually made me feel very proud and surprised at the same time. Proud to know that we had such great people who dreamed and made India self reliant during the British era. Surprised that how I was not aware of such amazing personalities till now. In my opinion it's a must read for all the Indian kids.
