Balkrishan Goenka

Balkrishan Goenka was born on August 15, 1966 in Mumbai, India, India. Textile billionaire Balkrishan Goenka's fortune took a beating last August when customers such as American retailers Target, J.C Penney, Wal-Mart and and Bed, Bath & Beyond ended their relationship with his Welspun India because the company used inferior cotton for making Egyptian cotton bedsheets. While the stock has recovered somewhat, Welspun, run by his wife Dipali, still has lawsuits pending against it in U.S.courts over the false labelling. He also owns stakes in pipe manufacturer Welspun Corp and a privately-held steel outfit. Spurning his family's trading business, Goenka borrowed $100,000 from his father, took a bank loan and started Welspun in 1985 to make polyester yarn. Expanded into home linen, focusing on the export market and got a break when Wal-Mart gave him a $1 million order for towels in1998.

🌙 Zodiac

Balkrishan Goenka’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
