Death of Dharampal Gulati: Mahashay Dharampal Gulati of MDH Masala Dies at 98 | India News


NEW DELHI: Mahashay Dharampal Gulati, the owner of MDH Masala, passed away Thursday morning. He was 98 years old.
Gulati has been in treatment at a hospital for the past three weeks. He went into cardiac arrest Thursday morning. Gulati became synonymous with the brand due to the popularity of the MDH advertisements in which it regularly appeared.
The owner of MDH, who is affectionately called ‘dadaji’ and ‘Mahashayji’, was born in 1923 in Sialkot, Pakistan. Upon dropping out of school, Gulati joined his father’s spice business in Sialkot and, after the partition, moved to India, where he opened a shop at Karol Bagh in Delhi.
From there, it made the whole group one of the leading spice manufacturers in India and expanded to 15 factories. MDH has offices in Dubai and London. It has over 60 products, but it gets most of its sales from three variants: Deggi Mirch, Chat Masala, and Chana Masala.
The owner of the MDH runs several educational institutes and a 300-bed super specialty hospital in Delhi.
