There is no age limit to success, it is the result of sheer hard work and dedication. Challenges are part and parcel of life but survival is what makes your journey worth all the efforts. Today, we going to share with you one such tale of a 77 years old dadi who works for more than 80 hours a week.

Mumbai resident Urmila Jamnadas Asher, popularly known as Gujjjuben is helping her grandson Harsh to run a small food business called 'Gujju Ben Na Nasta' where they strictly deliver homemade and fresh snacks all over the city.

Dadi works for more than 80 hours a week. She starts her kitchen at 7am and leaves by 9pm after all the orders are completed.  Her staff includes two helpers in the kitchen and two men for delivery purposes. Her grandson takes care of the accounts and other aspects of the business.

As reported in Quint, the 77-years-old grandmother had three children, however, her daughter accidentally fell off the building and died when was 2.5 years old, her older son passed away of a brain tumour, and the younger one died due to heart failure. At that moment, Urmila Ben was the one who stood rock solid and motivated her family members to not lose hope. Also, later when her only grandson, Harsh Asher met with an accident and hurt his face, she became her family’s strength once again.

Dadi has cooking experience of more than 40 years. She used to get invites from people to visit London, Portugal and other foreign states to cook food. 

During the lockdown last year her grandson's job was too affected due to the COVID-19 situation. At that time she was preparing pickles for the family members, neighbours and close relatives. So Harsh thought why not convert this thing into a business. In the initial days only they received a huge order for making pickles.

Today 'Gujju Ben Na Nasta' offers a delicious menu which includes Poha, Upma, Puri, Sukhi Bhaji, Sabudana Khichdi, Thepla, Paneer Sabzi, Palak Sabzi and other delightful snacks.
