Live within your means and save for your fu­ture, says the RC Manubhai Group of Com­pa­nies, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Di­nesh Pa­tel. He shared this piece of ad­vice with em­ploy­ees who were gath­ered at the RC Manubhai Group of Com­pa­nies, 2016 Awards Night held at Xavier Col­lege in Ba on Satur­day evening. Mr Pa­tel raised a ques­tion for his em­ploy­ees on how many of them were ac­tu­ally sav­ing for their fu­ture. “Quite of­ten we see peo­ple liv­ing be­yond their means and sim­ply de­pend­ing and liv­ing on their wages on the week to week ba­sis,” Mr Pa­tel said.

“To keep abreast of this chang­ing times life­styles fash­ions and other things, this no doubt is a dis­as­ter in mak­ing as this sort of ad­dic­tion will al­ways see you, in blunt terms, broke and look­ing for more money.” He added cur­rently peo­ple were very for­tu­nate that the Govern­ment was pro­vid­ing such help as free ed­u­ca­tion, sub­sidised elec­tric­ity and wa­ter, and fi­nanc­ing for new home own­ers.

“Sim­i­larly in times of dis­as­ters, the Govern­ment turned up with the help for homes ini­tia­tive to help re­build the lives of those who were af­fected by the cy­clone.” He said the Govern­ment must be com­mended for less­en­ing the bur­den of fi­nance from peo­ple’s lives.

“Most of these ben­e­fits were not here when our fore­fa­thers were here,” Mr Pa­tel added. “So the mes­sage I’m try­ing to give you – is ob­vi­ously with the help of the Govern­ment you have got the op­por­tu­nity to save and I hope you would be sav­ing for the fu­ture.” “So live within your means and save for your fu­ture.

“If you learn to do that I am sure that you can own much trendier mo­bile phones, watches and shoes etc, in time to come.”

Mr Pa­tel at­trib­uted the suc­cess of his fam­ily busi­ness to his fore­fa­thers who, he said, sac­ri­ficed a lot to en­sure they were what they are to­day.
