This Chandigarh Grandma Launched Her Startup With ‘Besan Ki Barfi’! At The Age Of 90

Age is just a number when it comes to your dreams and this is rightly proven by Harbhajan Kaur who launched, ‘Harbhajans’, her food business at the age of 90 in 2020!

Starting out, she sold besan barfi at a local market for Rs 2000. This not only made Harbhajan happy but confident in continuing her business. She prepared mouth-watering barfis, chutneys, and pickles and sold them at the local market every ten days.

Her granddaughter helped her expand her business with branding and expanding digitally. She gave a tagline, “Bachpan Yaad Aajaye” to Harbhajans. Over the years, Harbhajan has made over 500kg of barfi, with 1kg priced at Rs 850, and made many customers happy.

From being an introvert to giving interviews, the business has made Harbhajan a strong and confident woman. It has completely transformed her life. For her granddaughter’s wedding, all the wedding invitations were sent out with a Harbhajans sweet box.

In one of his tweets, Anand Mahindra honoured Harbhajan Kaur as his ‘entrepreneur of the year’. Presently, Harbhajans is a family run business, and they plan to employ in the future as the business grows.

If you are in Chandigarh and would like to try the barfi, head to Four Folks in Sector 35 or Dastaan in Sector 7. You can also call +91-9888419943 to place your order.
