A versatile personality
Dinesh Rawat was born in a middle-class trader’s family in Kolkata in 1953. He completed his academic degrees in B. Com and LLB from Calcutta. He worked in blue-chip companies like Texmaco, Hindustan Development Corporation, and Electro Steel Castings for thirteen years and, in 1986, started his own without any capital. For nineteen years, Rose Upto has had a premier position in the export-import and international trading business. He held directorship of over twenty companies and membership of many Chambers of Commerce, Export Promotion Councils, and business fraternity groups.
During his business, he got the opportunity to travel to sixty countries. Along with business activity, he used his travels for two causes. One was to research the real and unknown history of the world, and the other one was to research palm trees and gather the latest landscaping concepts.
Although he was doing exceedingly well in business, his heart wanted to spend his life on something that would genuinely contribute to humanity. He was concerned about global warming and climate change and decided to establish Green Mall in Kolkata to inspire people to go green and live in harmony with Nature. He shited his abode from Kolkata to a village called Samukpota, contributed his might to the cause, and helped people green their surroundings. He introduced to India the use of coco-pith in pot plants and the technology of excavation and replanting of big trees and palms in the urban landscape. He authored Palms for India, Green Your surroundings, and Green-Guru’s Gardening Guide.
He helped Indian Botanical Garden, Kolkata Corporation, Dakshineswar Kali Temple, and various government environment departments with his expertise. His articles are well received in magazines and newspapers. For the first time globally, he has produced two music albums on the environment- Prakriti Ki Pukar” & “Prakriti Vandana.” He received several national and international honors. He is elected as the President of the Indian Nurserymen Association (Eastern India)
He loves plants. Nature and environmental services are his passion, but he realizes his higher responsibilities to the nation. During his thirty-year research, he observed that Indians are unaware of their glorious past. They are blind to the fact that India was the wealthiest nation in the world for 4800 years. India has been projected as an impoverished, poverty-stricken, backward country with a mostly illiterate population. He is pained to see the cruel joke on the nation and its citizens’ dignity.
After the emergence of the pandemic COVID 19, the world will not remain the same. India has a significant role to play in the universe. The world must understand the real worth of India. And the people of India must know the real history which has remained concealed from their minds for centuries.
Considering the importance and urgency, He has embarked on a journey that would raise the self-esteem of all Indians.
The history of India is in a pathetic stage. Foreign invaders and rulers did their best to hide the glorious past of India. He has brought many startling facts to the public through his website www.gloriesofindia.in and videos on Youtube.
