VG Siddhartha, The 'Man Behind Cafe Coffee Day'

You must be familiar that entrepreneur VG Siddhartha who is best known as the ‘King of Coffee’ among everyone has put his life to an end. Yes! this is utterly shocking that the man behind coffee is no more between us. He had committed suicide and his dead body has been found on the banks of Netravati River in Dakshin Kanna district of Karnataka after two days after he went missing.

We can’t express our grief in words that how the man has impacted the lives of millions of people by introducing the coffee in a beautiful way which has helped us to make the bonds of relationship between our friends or closed ones stronger that we can never forget. Curious to know more about him? Let us take you through the journey of his life from the very beginning.

Read on to know more about VG Siddhartha, the chairman of our very favourite coffee chain ‘Café Coffee Day’.

And, in the year 1994, he launched his investment firm by the name ‘Sivan Securities’.

Siddhartha's letter to CCD employees

via: Siddhartha’s letter to CCD employees via: Twitter

Since Monday when he went missing, people were blind guessing about him and his whereabouts. Finally, the police had found him after performing extensive research for more than 36 hours. Even he wrote a heartbreaking letter explaining the reason for his sudden breakdown.

The reason he mentioned there in the letter was his incapability of creating a profitable business model for CCD despite putting many efforts. After listening to the news of his demise, people have started condoling the tragedy and have shared their favourite memories which they have made over coffee.

Many of them even tweeted on the Twitter platform also regarding their sweetest memories, where everyone has appraised CCD and its mind-blowing outlets that have made people enjoy a lot.

Women spoke about how CCD washrooms have helped so much to them while travelling on long routes:

A mother was fascinated once by the kind act of CCD workers when he wanted milk for his son:

So, this was Siddhartha’s inspiring story and how he ended up his life on a sad note leaving all the coffee lovers in tears behind.

Places in India That are Dedicated To Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi to whom we love to call as ‘Bapu’ needs no introduction I guess. He is the man who struggled a lot to give us Indians the freedom that we are enjoying today. He led so many movements like Dandi March, Satyagraha. He made us learn non-violence, harmony, peace, and love. On his 150th birthday, we are paying him tribute and remembering all the good deeds he did for us and for our nation to get the freedom. So, here I am listing some of the places which are associated with the life of Gandhi Ji.

One can go and visit these places and see what all is there and get to know what he did for India. Scroll down to see the list of places.

1. Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad

This is one of the best places that remind us of Gandhi Ji. He and his wife Kasturba Gandhi lived here. It is located on the bank of Sabarmati River, Ahmedabad. This is the place where two of the most important were started which were Dandi March and Salt Satyagraha. The Ashram gives us a quick recap of the pre-Independence history of India and the life of Mahatma Gandhi.

2. Gandhi Smriti, New Delhi

This place was previously known as Birla House or Birla Bhavan. At this place, Gandhi Ji spent 144 days of his life before he was assassinated. The property belongs to Birla’s, but now this museum has been dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi. The place has some of the popular exhibits which attract tourists from different parts of the world like Gandhi Ji’s room where he lived, the prayer ground where he was martyred.

3. Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum, Mumbai

This is the place where Gandhi Ji has started his political movements. This place remained as the political headquarters for 17 years. The movements that were initiated from here were Non-Cooperation, Satyagraha, Swadeshi, Khadi and the Khilafat movement. And, do you know this place has one major attraction that garbs everyone’s eyeballs and that is the huge library on the ground floor which has more than 50,000 books dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi.

4. Aga Khan Palace, Pune

Do you know this place actually served as a prison for Mahatma Gandhi, his wife, and secretary Mahadevbhai Desai after the launch of the Quit India movement? In fact, Kasturba Gandhi and her secretary passed away in this jail itself. It is located near River Mula in Pune. This place was also the shooting location for Sir Richard Attenborough’s iconic film, Gandhi.

5. National Gandhi Museum, New Delhi

National Gandhi Museum is located in the popular Rajghat area in the national capital region, New Delhi. This is one of the places that remind us of the great deeds done by Mahatma Gandhi. It was opened after Gandhi Ji was assassinated. It is famous for its impressive collection of art pieces and Gandhi’s personal memorabilia. The museum also has Gandhi Ji’s slippers, spectacles, beddings, jail bowl, a stick which he used in Dandi March.

6. Sevagram, Maharashtra

Sevagram is a small village which remained as headquarter for Gandhi Ji for long 6 years until 1940. He lived here this long because he has planned not to go back to Sabarmati until India will get free.

James Anderson Offers Plumbing Services

This is a bitter truth that we all know is no one does anything good for your free. But there are some persons like James Anderson who is proving us wrong by showing his act of kindness and good deeds that he is doing to everyone. Do you know recently, this kind-hearted plumber has gone viral for fixing the boiler of a 91-year-old cancer sufferer for free of cost that touches everyone’s heart? Besides helping everyone, Anderson also runs a non-profit organization that takes care of the elder and disabled people with plumbing issues for free.

His act of kindness made him receive £80,000 as a donation from his clients whom he helped

Seeing his kindness, one of his clients even named him as an “angel dressed as a plumber”. After he has gone viral for his kind acts for helping people, many of the peoples have donated him a hefty amount of money as donations to praise him for his kindness that he shows to everyone. The donation that he had received is nearly £80,000 ($99,400) so that he could keep up the good work.

And now, he is planning to come up with really something great which shocked us and that is he is planning to extend his free of cost plumbing service across the whole country.

He owns a non-profit company ‘Depher’ that offers free plumbing service to elderly people

He opened a non-profit company known as Depher in 2017 to help those people who require plumbing services for free. Till now, he has provided this free of cost plumbing services to approximately 2,000 people in Lancashire.

Hats off to him to come up with such an idea of helping people for free which no one does in this era. To keep his services go on he would require a huge amount of funds which he doesn’t have. Even the donations which he got from his clients failed to cover all the expenses and have put him in debt of around £8,000. But these things did not let him go down. He says, “To me, debt is debt… I would rather owe some money to somebody and another person be alive and happy and safe,”.

Coming to know about him after going viral on social media. People were very eager to help him and have donated as much money they could to help him. And in a week, he got £80,000 as crowdfunds. On receiving such love from the people, he says, “I’m overwhelmed. It makes you realize how kind people are and how amazing our country is. I don’t think I’m doing anything particularly kind. I’m just doing what I feel is the right thing,”

The kind act of people has motivated him further to expand his services nation-wide.

Long live Anderson is all we can say after coming across what he is doing to help the elder and disabled people who die just because of cold or who don’t have money to repair their boilers. This is what prompted him to offer these services for free to them so that he could bring the death rate down. Seriously, what a kind-hearted man he is.

5 of The Most Expensive Things That Dan Bilzerian has

Dan Bilzerian is a famous American poker player who is famous for his bizarre posts on Instagram along with half-naked women and his favourite machines like guns, cars, and bikes. I know every man out of there must be jealous of him as such an outlandish life he lives about which most of us could not even think of. He is also popularly known for throwing expensive parties in a pair of shorts and t-shirts which has become his ultimate style. Apart from all expensive labels, cars, machines, he also has a huge candy dispenser where he loves to store candies from all over the world.

Now, look at some of the expensive things which his closet has about which we could only dream of.

Like many billionaires, Dan Bilzerian has the walk-in closet for which most of us could only dream of. In fact, he has a $40,000 (approximately Rs. 28.72, 020) suit which he has never worn.

Do you know Dan Bilzerian is fond of guns, machine, guns and of course, his long and hairy beard? When he was India, he was gifted a customized deep red jacket by NM design studio which has the initials of those things which he likes the most as I told above. No one could afford such an expensive jacket as NM studio design is itself a big name and usually worn by celebrities like Emmy and Ranveer Singh.

Now, this is something crazy which we can’t even think of. We know he is a man who is too hairy so that’s why he would have decided to purchase a personal hair removal machine and keep it at home and sue whenever he feels like. Not only this one, but he also has many others too. Even he posted a picture of his machine on social media with the caption, “Bought another laser hair removal machine to help combat my shitty hairy genes.” Damn!

5. Movie Theatre

The movie theatre is also one of those luxuries items that you will find at Bilzerian’s house. Half-naked women all-around along with some popcorn and a cozy movie theatre in the house itself. Now, who would not like that in his/her home just like him? But that’s pretty costly and sadly, we cannot afford like him.
