When I was 17, I was in Ahmedabad and my father was running all of seven mills. However, I was not interested in the business. Instead I wanted to become a professor, a poet and an astrologer.

We were very rich and had everything. However, it was not a ‘zamana’ of love but that of discipline. My father wondered why I wanted to pursue other interests and not our business. So, he said very clearly that I must become a professor if I was not interested in working with him.
