The dream does not change at night, the caravan does not change the destination; Keep the spirit of winning because luck may not change, but time definitely changes.
Seeing my courage, my destination… I also felt scared seeing the distance, but I kept moving forward seeing the path, automatically kept coming closer to me, my destination seeing my courage.
The one who writes intentions with the ink of sweat, the white pages of his destiny never become blank… There is something else in fighting the storm… Do not be disheartened by the politics of pleasures, ‘Fani’, there is a gentle sight in every layer of the neck comes

4 great business ideas
Here are the possible businesses with an investment of two to five lakhs.
1) Gym or Fitness Center
It is necessary to have open space for the gym.
It is said that health care is better than cure. Means ‘Prevention is better than Cure’
Due to increasing pollution and unhealthy lifestyle (due to stressful environment) now people are becoming more conscious about their health. The diet of people in India is also carbohydrate and fat-rich. We also include a lot of oil in cooking which creates extra fat in the body.
So gym or fitness center has gained good popularity not only in metro cities and not only among rich and elite people but also among small towns and middle class. Nowadays even in small towns, wives have started giving gym membership to their husbands as birthday gifts.
you with an investment of 5 lakhs a small gym Can open up and expand the machines as more and more people join the gym. To start a gym, you will need a big space and basic exercise equipment, AC and a music system.
The gym can be combined with a yoga and meditation centre, laughter centre, Zumba club etc. Due to this the membership fee can be increased.
Caution – You have to study the technical things related to the gym very well. One has to learn the link between human body and exercise from experts.
2) Manufacturing of disposable paper plates, cups, glasses and glasses
Paper cup and plate making machine can come with low investment.
Almost all activities, such as weddings, birthday celebrations and business events require disposable cups and plates. Apart from this, these items are also required in office etc.
With the increasing awareness of the environment, many people now prefer to have these things made of paper instead of plastic plates, cups, glasses, etc.
This business is eco-friendly and profitable. The machines used for manufacturing paper plates, cups, glasses and tumblers are not very expensive and you can easily start your manufacturing unit by investing in any one machine in less than 5 lakhs. Then with time the machines can be increased.
Caution – It is necessary to have complete knowledge of government rules related to this business.
3) Pest Control Business
Knowledge of chemicals is necessary for pest control.
Most of the houses have cockroaches, flying bugs and other insects which cause great inconvenience. Insects can endanger farms and gardens by destroying crops and vegetables. Hence, people search for pest control services.
A few decades back, this business was considered very basic and simple. But, in today’s time, it has become refined, And it requires a lot of equipment and insecticides to effectively repel anything from rats, cockroaches, bedbugs to termites.
Before starting this business you have to invest in resources and chemical sprays to eliminate pests. Firms, Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, Corporate Offices, Housing Societies and others can be your potential customers.
This is a low risk and low investment business that you can start with an investment of up to ₹5 lakh.
Caution – Start this work only after learning everything from experts. It contains dangerous chemicals.
4) Photo Studio Services
Consider opening a studio only if you have the skill of photography.
The concept of the studio has already changed. Now is the era of lifestyle photography.
People these days want to get good photography done professionally for their wedding, babies, pre-wedding, pregnancy shoots, birthdays and many more. They want to capture every moment of their life and for this they are ready to spend a lot of money. With the advent of social media, they now have the means to share these photos as well.
To be a good photographer, you need to have professional skills, and not everyone can do it. You must have come across many photo studios where people get photographed for ID, work or personal use but professional photography is much more than that.
Wedding photography in India is a profitable business as people are ready to spend huge amount of money on their wedding, especially in their photographs and videos. To start this business, you have to make a studio and for that you have to take a place on rent. In the beginning you can start yourself with good cameras, lenses, lights, tripods and as the business grows you can hire a team of talented photographers.
Nowadays it is a trend to print photos not only on film but also on cups, T-shirts, pillow covers, tiles etc. You can also take this type of work and without investing in the machines of these things yourself, you can get them printed from other places and make them available to your customers. Along with this, the business of photo framing can also be started.
Caution – Taking photo with mobile is not photography. It’s an art form, so don’t jump in right away.
That’s all for today! In the coming articles, I will keep telling you about more such creative ideas.
