Meghna Beauty Parlor Completes 40 Happy & Successful Years with Sincerity & Dedication

Hariet Tubman had once quoted “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

And a recent visit to Meghna Parlor in Green Park, Delhi made me believe in this quote from the core of my heart. Meghna Parlor recently celebrated its 40th successful anniversary and the occasion was truly grand.

Since the last 40 years, this beauty property has been serving I was fortunate enough to meet the shapers behind this prosperous venture. Meghna Beauty Parlor is a plush property that began its journey through the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Goel, two passionate dreamers who believed in the core mantra that dedication and determination can overpass anything. And their dream baby completed 40 glorious successful years with all charm and might a few days back.

I happened to be a part of the celebrations and learn a lot about this journey. Meghna Beauty Parlor named after Mr. And Mrs. Goel’S daughter Meghna, had been started 40 years back just as a small dream and an equally small set up. With only two staff as the team, Mr. And Mrs. Goel themselves, Meghna Parlor seemed a hard dream to pursue. In the words of Manish Goel, the renowned television actor, Mr. Goel’s son, Continuing Meghna Parlor was challenging but Mr. Goel had a single mantra; Never to return a single customer from the desk.” Mr. And Mrs. Goel were both the beautians, the hair stylists, the laundry staff, the cleaners at once. At present Meghna Beauty Parlor boasts of a huge team of minimum 100 staff with an elaborate setting of three spacious floors.

M

Moreover when asked about Meghna’s plans about extending franchisee into other cities, Manish Paul said that Meghna is like a baby that has been nurtured by his parents since the last 40 years and hence passing it’s legacy to somebody else’s hands would not be a wise decision.

This parlor situated in the bustling hub of Green Park has been the reason for beautifying thousands of people. Generations after generations have been their customers and the only reason for their success is the humility and dedication with which they offer their services.

Beginning from usual beauty treatments to a host of other treatments like nail studios and make up packages, Meghna believes in providing an array of services in the most affordable ranges.

We wish Meghna Parlor many more years of success just like this. May your magical hands continue beautifying people just like it has been doing since the last 40 years.
