Issue No. 9

To all Indians Happy Independence day !

My Dear Pranavite's It's my pleasure to express my views about our Pranav Group via 9 th issue of Nav Udyog. Our growth of the group is very healthy and we stand very strong in the Indian Agri Processing Economy. We have acheived last year turnover of Rs. 625 crore and now we will have target of Rs 750 crores for financial year 2011-12. I am very glad to see our new generation from my family as well as young managers, who are all moving the company's core values at great speed & dynamism. It is always our endeavor to add value added products & protect our company from the economy's speculative and volatile commodity markets. Our R&D team is also making good progress and making our product lines unique in the market. Our all time green division AFS is consistent in their growth plans. Our CSR under Suraj Foundation has updated its prospectus by adding new courses which are catering to our society's requirements. As they say, so far so good‌ The monsoon's have blessed us with good showers and as a result we are expecting good crop in our region hence leading to positive crushing for the group this coming season & year ahead. Our Human Resources department is working hard round the clock to maintain sufficient labor force throughout the divisions. We know we face the challenge to keep our labor force available throughout the year. Young managers, dynamic and multifaceted minds will be the key driver for our growth. Job related skill training will be our thrust area. ISO certification will enhance our performance further with discipline in our day to day working. Lastly, we have a new addition to illustrate our group. Our new logo, which I feel will create a great presence for our group in our ever growing global arena of innovative industries. I wish you all the best of luck, Jai Hind. - Pravin S. Lunkad



Accept Responsibility : Responsibilities gravitate to the person who can shoulder them said Elbert Hubbard & how true this is. When people accept additional responsibility they are actually giving themselves a promotion. Responsible behavior is to accept accountability. That represents maturity. Acceptance of responsibility is a reflection of our attitude and the environment we operate in. Most people are quick to take credit for what goes right but very few would readily accept responsibility when things go wrong. A person who does not accept responsibility is not absolved from being responsible. Our objective should be to cultivate responsible behavior. People who don't accept responsibility shift the blame to their colleagues, God, fate, luck or the stars. Responsible behavior should be inculcated right from child hood. It cannot be taught without a certain degree of obedience. People who use their privileges without accepting responsibility usually end up losing their privileges. Responsibility involves thoughtful action. Pettiness causes us to ignore our responsibility. Petty minds are busy passing buck rather than doing what needs to be done. Let us be the responsible employees of our organization.




am very happy to publish Nav

Udyog after a commercial break. Nav Udyog is our internal circular that makes family members aware of activities in group . This is a window to introduce new employees and new technologies adopted. Attracting, keeping and motivating talent has become one of the main activities of organizations 'Stop complaining' This is easier said than done, but a simple trick may help to create positive attitude towards life. Now days employee retention plays vital role in Human Resource management Six job dimensions have been identified as important characteristics of a job conducive to job satisfaction. These are: (a) Mentally challenging job and the job content. (b) Opportunities for career growth. (c) Supportive co-workers. (d) Supportive supervision. (e) Conducive working conditions. (f) Personality-Job Fit profile (Holland's Theory).

Editor Mr. Sandip Kumbhar Mob. 9372106193 Publisher Mr. Kamat N.G. Mob. 9372105764 For PRANAV GROUP Ph.: 0233-2644521 / 22 / 24

This division is a new addition to the Pranav Group, An ISO 9001:2008 Certified Company The concept was initiated way back in late 2008 and the division, headed by Dr.Vedhakumar Valliappan and Mr Ravi Nersihan, has started production from May 2010. Operations is ably run by Mr. Sachin Terdale, Mr. Vijay Sunke and Mr Ashok Mane and supported by divisions like refinery, packing, maintenance, boiler, electrical, etc. What are Speciality Fats? Speciality fats are used widely in the food and other industries where special applications require specific physical properties and the largest single user of Speciality Fats are the chocolate and confectionery industries where several factors like : • meltdown in the mouth, • flavour release, etc. are extremely critical and are usually compared with industry's standard of excellence - cocoa butter. Speciality Fats are thus, tailor made to imitate the many positive traits of cocoa butter or other properties to make them more suitable for specific applications. Traditionally, natural cocoa butter was the only fat that possessed the most desirable properties for making chocolate. The premium qualities of cocoa butter led to a pricing of the fat above all others. This attractive price consideration was one of the main factors which motivated research to find replacers for cocoa butter. This soon led to the development of many other types of replacer fats that were mixed with cocoa butter and other materials to make chocolate confectionery. These fats came to be termed generally as Speciality Fats. Speciality fats are not only used in the Chocolate Industry but also find uses in: • Ice Cream Industry – ice cream fats, ice cream chocolate coatings. • Confectionery • Pharmaceuticals – suppositories/binders • Milk fat replacers • Non Dairy Whipped Toppings • Cosmetics – lipsticks The division processes and supplies Cocoa Butter Equivalent fats like Kokum, Sal, Sal Stearin, Mango, Mango Stearin and Mango Olein for export as well as the domestic market and Cocoa Butter Substitute fats to the domestic market.

Attitude... The key element for success Everything begins and ends with your attitude. It is the foundation for our success. In fact, in many companies a good attitude is not only nice, but also essential. Improper Attitude can hold back people from getting hired and in other cases it is a reason for dismissal. For example, if you apply for a job at one major hotel chain and you do not smile at least five times in a five -minute interview then your chances for getting hired are almost non-existent. In another instance, major enterprises have managers at different levels who observe employees and if they see anyone with a bad attitude they relieve them of their duties immediately. All this "attitude" stuff may seem fluffy to some, but to attract and keep clients we must project an upbeat, caring and concerned attitude. To keep attitude adjusted at all times follow these three mantras: 1. Flip side exercise - This exercise is based on the principal that no matter what goes wrong there is always something good that comes from it. For example, if you hate your job, the flip side would be that at least you have a job or if you put a dent in your new car the flip side is at least you were not hurt. The man who recently got divorced stated it best, "I'm not divorced, I've just been traded." These guidelines are easier said then done. To make the flip side exercise work for you take a small notebook with you everywhere you go and when something goes wrong, write down what went wrong and what is good about it. Try this for a month and you'll find that you're not only thinking this way, but you're enjoying life even more than before. 2. Count your blessings - Count your blessings, not your worries. Too many times we let every little problem affect us. This causes us to be less productive, less happy and our attitude suffers. For example, if we lose a sale many of us become disappointed and we let the negative energy affect us. To combat this we need to appreciate all our blessings such as family, shelter, friends, our job and others. We then need to put it all in perspective and focus on what is really important in life. 3. Simplify your life - Make your life simpler and watch your attitude improve. For example, one client of mine was going to fire one of his employees because of his poor attitude. The reason he had a poor attitude was that he had to drive a long distance everyday in terrible traffic. Realizing this may be the problem, the employee moved to a new apartment, which was only 5 minutes from work. Almost immediately, his attitude changed and he was like a new person. Simplify now and you'll see a change for the better. Attitude is a choice we need to make. So please, keep a positive attitude on life, work hard towards your goals and keep the positive attitude going under all circumstances. Eventually, we will all reach our destination and achieve our desired goals and the world will be a much better place.
