India’s dependence on liquid bulk cargoes is forecasted to increase in

the next five years, particularly petroleum, oils, edible oils and other
petrochemicals. With increase in liquid bulk volumes, liquid bulk trade
will be a significant contributor to the Customs and Port revenues. Given
the enormous volume, the country requires mammoth infrastructure at
sea and land to keep the economy well oiled. Krishnapatnam Liquid
Cargo Terminal will be bridging this infrastructure gap.

PCN Menon, a college drop-out from Kerala in India

went to Oman four decades ago and established
a design studio on his better half’s name ‘Sobha
Hartland’. The company has a speciality of offering
designing, detailing, contracting and manufacturing
solutions all at one place. Sobha has entered into the
Indian market and will become a No1 brand in the
country in the next 10 years. However, the company’s
headquarters is still in Oman. Half of company’s
wealth goes into the charity.
Mr Menon shared his amazing and inspiring journey
and the lessons learned in life with Star Trekers


It is the passion which is the most important

thing in my life. The more you have passion about
anything you achieve much more than that. if you are
passionate about your work, you don’t need
Mr. Sasidhar. You need yourself to start believing in
yourself. And when you start believing in yourself,
I think you don’t need many people.
Today, you are not competing with India, you are
competing with the world. When you are competing
with the world then your thinking should be much
broader. Open up your mind, start thinking big, only
then we can achieve. You think small, you will get
small goals. Think big, you will achieve everything.
I suggest to everybody here, just start thinking and
you can achieve the ultimate. Depend on yourself,
that’s what I did in cricket. I know how much talent I
have and I work on that. This is the way I lived my life.



I get inspired by Dubai because about 44 years ago

there was nothing here and today you see everything
here. Krishnapatnam Port when I first saw it was all
like Dubai – sand dunes. But one advantage we have is
better weather. I used to tell some fishermen groups to
convince them, I am going to make this place like Dubai
someday, but they never believed me, but I used to have
that dream. Dreams have so much power, this is what I
am saying to you all – “Dare to dream.”
We never dreamed of all these companies which we
have formed, but today you all are like a great strength
to me. You have developed these companies and
now you need to dream more and try to make these
companies the best ones in India or the Fortune 500
companies in the world.


When Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister went to Japan,

he had to introduce himself as “I am from the state
where Krishnapatnam Port is located.” This is the type
of transformation that has been brought by the port, by
the Navayuga Group and our MD, Mr Sasidhar, because
of the self-belief we have. From being a port we have
evolved into a container terminal and further developed
into a large supply chain conglomerate. This growth is
just the beginning of a very big thing that is going to
happen. Today, Navayuga Container Terminal is the fastest
growing terminal in India, creating a lot of new business
opportunities and wealth for the state. This year Navayuga
Container Terminal paid 7000 crores in tax revenue.
