Mr. Yogesh Kashinath Kalan (Co-founder), a renowned businessman and entrepreneur at Kalan Masale Wale, and a passionate poet saw his demise on 28th June, 2015. Though his honest living inspired many, his heavenly journey left behind a successful empire (wholesale and retail business set up in Pen) to be followed now by Mr. Ruturaj. Y. Kalan.
Born on 20th February, 1942, Mr. Yogesh envisioned a bright future from his youth, stepping into his father’s (Mr. Kashinath Kalan - Founder) shoes as he took over the enterprise of Kalan Masale Wale. The organization thrives in sales of Maharashtrian food, snacks, spices, pickles, grains, and a lot more, expanding its avenues in Mumbai, Pune, and Raigad.
He was also a man of words, and an eclectic writer, poet, and composer going over to pen more than 250 poems, out of which selected 100 poems were published in his book ‘Oonjal’- launched by his beloved daughter-in-law, Mrs. Anjali Kalan. His loving nature, struggles, and striving for making people around him content will be always remembered.
