Software Engineer Quit His Job To Start His Own ‘Chai’ Business

| Published on September 7, 2020

At some point in our lives, we all have had a thought of quitting our jobs and follow our passion. While there are lucky few who have made their passion into a career, there are many who are just compromising with our dreams.

Starting your own business has always been on everyone’s mind. But it takes a lot of courage to give up your earning job to do something that is risky and unpredictable.

A Software Engineer who once had a high paying job in reputed multinational companies, such as Wipro, has given it all up to start his own tea business. A picture of a Chaiwala is going viral on social media who has hung a banner on his tea stall which roughly translates to,

I am a Software Engineer essentially. I have worked in many companies like Wipro where i got paid well but had no mental satisfaction. I always wanted to start my own business. I always got served with a cup of tea which was never up to the mark for me. I have always been a Chai-lover. I always wished to have an amazing tea for that I decided to start my own small Tea business and now I have become… Engineer Chaiwala.”

It was Awanish Sharan, IAS, Chhatisgarh Cadre, who shared a post on Twitter with the image of the tea stall.

As soon as the image of his tea stall went viral, people couldn’t stop applauding his courage to start his own business. People were quick to point out that what he did to follow his dream is not something everyone is capable to do.


Though making a living has always been essential, following your dreams and working for your mental satisfaction is not something everyone can have. What has been your dream that you would give up everything for? Do tell us in the comment section.
