From the humble village of Rohini in Shirpur Taluka, Dist. Dhule, Mukesh Patil embarked on a remarkable journey in the textile industry. Growing up in a lower middle-class family with limited means, Mukesh's pursuit of education led him to enroll in the Diploma in Textile Technology program at the Center for Textile Functions (CTF) after completing his 10th grade at Mahatma Jyotiba Phule High School, Shirpur. Despite the financial challenges, Mukesh's determination and talent shone through as he secured a life-changing opportunity at Welspun India Limited's nonwoven division in Anjar, Gujarat. With a firm belief in the future prospects of this specialization, Mukesh persevered and honed his skills, gaining invaluable experience in the industry. His hard work paid off as he steadily climbed the career ladder. Recently, Mukesh made a strategic move, transitioning to Vision Non-Wovens Private Limited in Jamnagar, where he currently serves as the Process and Production Manager. Today, he takes immense pride in his achievements, knowing that he has not only transformed his own life but also created opportunities for others.
Hailing from the serene village of Torkheda in Taluka Shahada, Dist. Nandurbar, Bhushan Kumbhar's journey into the world of textile technology is inspiring. Following his 10th grade education at Kadma Bande High School, Bhushan set out to explore employment-oriented courses, eventually discovering the Diploma in Textile Technology program at CTF. Coming from a lower-middle-class family, Bhushan recognized the significance of education and seized the opportunity to pursue his dreams. He enrolled in the program at CTF in 2016. During his time at CTF, Bhushan and his peers were exposed to state-of-the-art textile manufacturing machinery at the Shirpur Textile Park, allowing him to gain hands-on experience and practical knowledge. Upon completing his diploma, Bhushan secured a position at Alok Industry's garment division. Subsequently, he joined Banswara Syntex Limited in Surat, further enriching his experience in the field.
