Its already mentioned in Himalya Website, how he had struggled in the past.
Man Mohan Malik, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Himalaya International was thrust into business at the age of twenty on the sudden demise of his Father. Six years of multiple adolescent debacles in diverse businesses, Textiles to Bullion, Commodities to Stocks Markets, did not decimate his will to succeed. With just a Penny in his pocket in 1979, he launched Himalya with a green field project in a backward region of India. Even though his education had previously revolved around Physics and Law, he quickly became a self-taught business leader in the small township of Paonta Sahib in the foothills of Himalaya Mountains in India.
Failure, hardship, adversity, nothing seemed to slow his ambition or drive. Not only is he committed to the entity he first created 38 years ago, as he still insists on living near the plant in the small township; he is passionate about the welfare of his employees and the surrounding community. He has consistently innovated programs to help surrounding farmers, to further the lives of employees, help youngsters to dream of success and to maintain the serenity and balance of the environment.
