Atul Ashtekar said, “We have been into jewellery business since the past 400 years. Hailing from Ashti Dhotar Joda village in Jalna district in Marathwada, our ancestors conducted business by visiting various villages and town bazaars on weekends to trade in jewellery. But during the British era, the British had put a halt to all the commerce and forced the traders to deal only in indigo, which resulted in shutting down of local businesses.”
