Leaving all that he had in Bhiwani, Harayana in early 1947, he came all by himself to explore Bombay and to start something on his own. Coming from a joint family that had more than 25 members living in a house and running a Ration Store, which catered to all of Bhiwani, he came to the city that was full opportunities to try his luck.
Being experienced in owning and managing a ration store, he started off with trading Pulses & Katha. Within few days he added Indian spices to his list of trading. Looking for a better and bigger business, while opening his office in Kalbadevi & Cotton Green Area under the name Baijnath Melaram, he entered into trading of chemical products, within the same year. As soon as business was good within a couple of years, Shri Baijnathji called all his relatives to establish themselves in Bombay.
