My father always says, “If people remember and miss you months and years after
you are gone, you have truly lived your life the right way”.

I experienced this on my recent trip to Chikmagalur.

If you ever visit Chikmagalur in Karnataka, India, do talk to people there and
ask them what they think of the Late V.G. Siddhartha, founder of Cafe Coffee
Day.

I met an old coffee estate owner, who got emotional while talking about
Siddhartha.

He murmured in Kannada, ‘ We wish we had known the reason for the drastic step
he took. Had it been financial issues, every man of this town would have stepped
forward to support him. After all we have seen glory, only because of him”.

Truly, the extent of efforts he has taken to uplift the coffee plantation owners
and also to spread the coffee culture in a country obsessed with its tea, is
mind blowing.

You feel the impact even more when you visit this small town, which was barely
heard of earlier.

An Entrepreneur can truly do so much for people and create a legacy.
