His son-in-law, Nishan, joined him in managing the growing business, with Sheryl overseeing the administrative aspects.

Prakash has been actively involved in the day-to-day operations of Jaisher Logistics until his unfortunate demise.

One of Prakash’s notable contributions was his innovative approach to rejuvenating Mercedes Actros trucks.

He had a unique method of purchasing just the cab and meticulously rebuilding it, giving these trucks a second life on the roads.
