Neither penury nor a ten-crore loss in a super cyclone could keep down Sarat Kumar Sahoo,Son of Late Banamali Sahoo born on22nd July,1950. Who rose from a tiny food stall to build a company with Rs 250 crore turnover and more than a thousand employees.
The industrious life-graph of Sarat Kumar Sahoo, Managing Director, Om Oil and Flour Mills, is not obvious in his simple living; it is evident in his work. Sarat, now 66, was born the second of three siblings to a middle-class family in Cuttack. His father ran a tiny five-seater eatery, barely enough to feed their family of five. Sarat remembers his nursery education near his house at Ranihat in Cuttack, “a temporary arrangement under a tree.”
After his higher secondary exams Sarat took admission into Christ College in Cuttack, but his brother went to Chennai to do a course in automobile engineering and it fell upon Sarat to assist his father.
His own children, Arbind Sahoo (41) and Rashmi Sahoo (38) are now directors in the company and follow their father’s mantra of ‘Hard work, honesty and no compromise on quality.’ Sarat says, “I had vowed never to give unhealthy food to my costumers and I request the younger generation to follow the same path.”
