Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka, has been famous as the Silicon Valley of the country, but there is a story of this city which is not known much by the people of other parts of the country. This is the story of Vijay Sankeshwar. Leaving his ancestral business of book publishing, Vijay decided to try his luck in the business of transporting goods and once used to pay his telephone bills by taking loans, Vijay now runs Vijayanand Road Lines (VRL), the largest logistics company in the country. The company also holds the record for having the largest number of commercial vehicles in the country. The trailer of Vijay Sankeshwar’s film ‘Vijayanand’ based on this inspirational story was released by Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and Health Minister Dr. K Sudhakar in Bengaluru on Saturday night.
inspirational story of victory from struggle
The life journey of Vijay Sankeshwar has been wonderful and exciting in itself. He started his life in a very simple way and his family background was also very simple. Later, due to his hard work and dedication, he became the owner of Vijay Karnataka, the biggest newspaper in Kannada. The newspaper was later bought by the Times of India newspaper publishing company in 2007. After fulfilling the five-year condition of not taking out another newspaper in its competition, Vijay brought out another newspaper named Vijay Vani and made it the number one newspaper in Karnataka. He also has his own TV channel. Even in the newspaper business, when he had to face a lot of opposition in the initial days, he reduced the price of the newspaper to just one rupee. The Government of India has honored him with the Padma Shri.
