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 Mrs Anjali. R. Kalan and Mrs Tejashree. N. Deshmukh.
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.
