Vetri was once a successful business man in Coimbatore. Vetri Constructions, was once a leading construction company. His company constructed many shopping complexes, houses and a few apartments in and around Coimbatore. Everything went well, until his father died. After his father’s death, his brothers demanded to split the wealth as they wanted to start their business separately.
From then on Vetri found it difficult to establish his business. He took loans to run his company, but he could not pay the loan. So, he sold all his properties and paid the loans. Vetri’s family now lived in a very small home.
Vetri found a job, and started to lead a normal life. But he always longs to start a new construction company. But, he did not know how to get money to start a company. No one was ready to lend him money. One day, as he discussed with his wife. His wife said, “Why don’t you ask your friend Asif? You often said that you were good friends.” Vetri replied, "Yes, but he is in Chennai. He is very busy with his business, I don’t think it would be easy to meet him.” Wife asked "Why don’t you give it a try?” Vetri said, ”I haven’t seen him for a long time. What will he think of me? If I ask him to help now.” Wife said, ”Then, forget the idea to start a new business.” Vetri after deep thought decided to meet his friend. He told his wife about his decision and took the next train to Chennai.
