Sonu Bhasin, a family business historian, marked her debut in the literary world with her 2017 book, ‘The Inheritors – Stories of Entrepreneurship and Success’ which garnered great reviews. Her second book, a biography titled ‘Unstoppable: Kuldip Singh Dhingra and The Rise of Berger Paints’ is equally engaging; it will be released in July 2019.
Unstoppable: Kuldip Singh Dhingra and The Rise of Berger Paints is a biography of Kuldip Singh Dhingra, the patriarch of the Dhingra family and the man credited with building Berger Paints.
He is low-profile, eschews media and continues to operate from a small office in Delhi. In this candid and captivating biography Kuldip reveals his story for the first time.
Kuldip lost his father to an accident early in his life. He and his brothers, Sohan and Gurbachan, started as shopkeepers in Amritsar. From an annual turnover of Rs. 10 lakh in 1970, the Dhingras have built a business with an annual turnover of over Rs. 7,500 crore today. They are among the top thirty richest families in India with a net worth of over $ 4.5 billion.
This never-before-told story of Kuldip moves from Amritsar to Europe to Delhi where he became the largest exporter to the Soviet Union in the 1980s. In 1990 the Dhingras bought Berger.
From dealing with the Soviet Authorities to negotiating with the flamboyant Vijay Mallya; from being pushed to sell arms to challenging big businesses-Unstoppable narrates what a man can achieve if he pursues his dreams relentlessly.
Bhasin’s Unstoppable: Kuldip Singh Dhingra and The Rise of Berger Paints is a story about how do you go from being a shopkeeper to multi-billionaire in forty years. Read it to find out more.
