Luckily for Madan, his grandparents loved and cared for him and at the age of 23 he decided to venture into tailoring:
“All I have to do in my life, I do it with my feet; Cut the fabrics, take measurements and sew “.
At first, no one was willing to train him, and so he traveled all the way to a different town in search of a tailor who would give him a chance.
