Enduring five years of bed rest following the onset of polio, Ramachandra refused to succumb to despair. Instead, he pursued woodcraft training in Hubballi, where he honed his skills. Over the course of five to six years, he served as an apprentice in carpentry and wood carving under various mentors in Ankola and Hubballi.

Ramachandra’s proficiency in wood carving soon garnered widespread acclaim, with the people of Ankola specifically seeking out his craftsmanship for their furniture needs.

Now 29 years old, Ramachandra established Sri Rama Enterprises, a furniture-making and retail outlet, four years ago. Through his venture, he has not only realized his entrepreneurial ambitions but has also provided livelihoods for eight individuals.

Much like the inspiring story of successful blind businessman Srikant Bolla, whose life is the subject of the movie ‘Srikant,’ Ramachandra Nayak’s journey exemplifies triumph over adversity. Despite facing significant challenges, Ramachandra’s unwavering determination and entrepreneurial spirit have propelled him to success, making him a respected figure in the business community of Ankola and an inspiration to many.
