The man against hunger

The man against hunger

(Penguin Petit)

Milind Khandekar
Select Preferred Format

Sarath Babu’s mother used to drink a lot of water. He always thought it was just a habit, but only on growing older did he realize that it was because she’d given all the food to her four children.
Sarath’s exemplary academic record brought him first to BITS Pilani and then to the prestigious IIM-A, where he could have had his pick of jobs. However, a month into placements, he opted out of interviews, in order to cater for them. Hastily licensing his business under the name ‘Foodking’, he made Rs 70,000 in his first month through sheer chutzpah, and went on to build a nation-wide catering empire offering the good, wholesome, inexpensive food of his childhood.
Sarath’s poverty has made him sensitive to the grave social injustices in the country, and he wants, more than anything, to ensure that sustainable employment and development is accessible to people below the poverty line. Now joining politics, he hopes to be able to leave behind a legacy of determination and change—find out how here.
