1) Jo baka apdu setting che tya!

This quality has to top the list for sure. Gujjus are the masters of jugaad. When things go out of course that’s when the game begins for them.

 

 

 

2) The only P of marketing – Patels !

Ditch the expensive Philip kotler marketing journal and spend an hour with a Gujarati friend. You will learn more and save money as well.

 

 

 

3) Their risk appetite is larger than their actual appetite.

Gujjus are known all over the world for their food habits. Playing well in the courage zone also falls into our basket of awesomeness other than food.

 

 

 

4) Resale value bolo pehla!

Apart from all those technical functions of any project or investment, Resale value is what a gujju will always ask for. Value for money is what excites them and not just fancy packaging

 

 

5) It is not “ Maru” it is always “ Apdu” !

“Its not me its we “ Was coined by modern day management books in recent times. Being a team player runs into our history. Don’t you question us!

 

 

6) Dignity of work.

Sounds like a management answer book excerpt, trust me it is not. Most Gujratis are self made and are amazing examples of rags to riches. A Gujarati will never be ashamed of what he does and will equally respect what others do.

 

 

 

7) Self Starters.
