At a later age he went to Kolkata from where he completed his education, and entered the sphere of productivity as a spanking new Chartered Accountant. After working at it for some years, he moved to Europe, and in the year 1989, finding value in converting industrial and other waste into reusable material, he took the plunge and founded his own company in Antwerp, Belgium. His company, and established under the name of Gemini Corporation, began dealing with the sourcing, processing and logistics of recyclable raw materials. In its first month, the company shipped just one container of plastic scrap. Today, some 5000 containers of steel, plastic, rubber and other industrial grade scrap that come from all across the world are shipped by it from over 100 seaports every month.
