This US woman fell in love with chai in India; now she is worth Rs 200 crore
Brook Eddy came to India in 2002, and she not only fell in love with the drink. Eddy had actually come to India to join a social-justice movement based on Bhakti, which inspired her deeply, but during this sojourn she visited villages across Western India, and tasted her first cup of "chai".
Eddy's firm Bhakti Chai is stated to have earned USD 35 million (Rs 2,27,86,75,000), and this year's projected revenue is seven million dollars (Rs 45,57,35,000). Image source: Reuters
