Around 18 years ago, a 21-year-old youngster,Mr. C. Y. Aasife Ahmed, who could not study beyond Class nine due to financial difficulties at home decided to use the Rs 4,000 he received from a LIC ‘Money Back policy’ to start a small biryani business from a thallu vandi (pushcart). He has started the Company Aasife Biriyani and now the Managing director of the same. He is the most experienced Biryani chef working from 20 years. His innate entrepreneurial skills, passion for cooking and some experience as a biryani master under a veteran cook gave him the confidence to start a venture of his own.
