Mahashay Dharampal, born on March 27 in 1923 in Sialkot (Pakistan), has been one of the most inspiring personalities when it comes to spices. The face of MDH for almost a century has been a personality of many dimensions and achievements. His immense modesty and down to earth charm have inspired many over the years.
Son to the philanthropic couple, Mahashay Chunnilal and Mata Chanan Devi, who built an empire
Gulati, who came to India after the partition of the country, with the help of his father in 1937 set up a small business of looking mirrors and thereafter soap business and carpentry job, cloth merchant, hardware business & rice trading. Somehow these petty businesses could not hold him for long and he again joined hands with his father in his parental business of spices under the name of Mahashian Di Hatti, popularly known as 'Deggi Mirch Wale' people.
