Although he is a successful entrepreneur, Dr. Vijay journey to success was not an easy way. As he started, the economic stability in Asia was under crisis, Vijay lacked financial support, he also had no connections, and no one believed he would succeed. His only relief came from his wife, and luckily he got supportive partners who shared similar goals. He still faces challenges even today, and he is ready to face them even tomorrow as challenges to him are signs of progress.
