Namaste! Thanks for stopping by, I am Uttam Singh Lingwal Owner & Director Swasteek Resort, husband to Shaily Lingwal & father of Swasteek Singh Lingwal. Born and Brought up in Mumbai, spent by childhood in IIT Bombay campus with my father Late Mr Chiranjilal Lingwal (Ex Indian Army & Land lord Swasteek Resort), mother Mrs. Deveshwari Devi & siblings Ms Lalitadevi Gosain & Mr Preetam Singh Lingwal (Founder trustee Shiva DMD & Owner Gayatri organics).
After completing services with Indian Army my father started working with security department in IIT Bombay & mother was house wife & one of the first entrepreneurs I observed, to think of why me & my brother are entrepreneurs ourselves is we inherited mother's qualities. I did my schooling from KVIIT & went on to do my graduation in commerce from Tolani College of Commerce (Andheri). I always thought I will do a 9 to 6 job post graduation & as planned I started working in accounts department. I went on to get placed in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Airlines Catering where I spent 5 years and then joined Gulf Catering & Skylink U.S.A (Air & Logistics) posted in Iraq where I spent 3 years out of which first 2 years were like 2 decade. Living in the US army camp under the threat of getting bombed everyday was nothing less than hell of an experience. This is where I realized what I will be doing next and where I want to be in future.
Like all young Indians I also dreamt & earned dollars but still I had a feeling something was missing. I have always read, money won't buy you happiness and was starting to realize the same living in the war zone. So I decided to give farewell to my friends from US & Iraq and returned to my mother land.
Back in Mumbai I had 2 choices, taking up a 9 to 6 job or set up my own business to spend rest of my life happily. But I knew this will not serve the purpose, I will still be missing that certain element in my life which made me leave behind a lavish life & Dollars in Iraq.
In search of my next dream venture I spent a whole year with no luck, the search ended when I was on a family friend trip to my native in Uttarakahand. I reached my village Thamana in Pauri & what I saw was something I always mesmerized, the freshness in the air and the scenic beauty took my heart away.
I reached a certain hill top from where I encountered the ultimate "art of God" a panoramic view of the celestial Himalayan mountains, the scene of the snow capped mountains took me into a different trance & the ambiance helped me forget all the worries & tension. I realized what was missing; it was the "Peace of Mind". For the next 6 months I spent exploring rest of Pauri & Uttarakhand to visualize my next venture, which I call now "Swasteek Resort".
