Water for the helpless
"After my graduation I wanted to do something
on my own, so I started the transportation company
as it was then the best thing to do",
said Dyaanesh Barguje, owner of Darshan
Darshan Transport was started in 1989 with just
one trolley tempo. At the moment,
Dyaanesh owns three Tata 407 trucks and one Tata
709 vehicle. The sphere of operations include
Maharashtra and Karnataka - up to Bangalore.
Most of the time he is picking up the material
from godowns and delivering it to the customer.
According to Dyaanesh, the competition in the
trucking business is very tough.
Due to constant water shortage in the area he
lives in, he purchased a water tanker. He uses
the tanker to supply water to the hapless water-starved
residents of the city. The tanker collects water
from the Municipal Corporation and supplies to
areas within a radius of 30 kilometers.
