Ramesh Chauhan , owner of Parle group sold his soft drinks brands to the Coca Cola company which snoozed this brand.---Parle sold Gold Spot along with Thums Up, Limca, Citra and Maaza to Coca-Cola in 1993 (which had just relaunched in the Indian market), reportedly for $40 million. In spite of its wide popularity, Gold Spot was withdrawn by Coke from the market in order to re-make space for Coca-Cola's Fanta brand.--- Credit - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Spot?fbclid=IwAR0TzDVzvpNjSzWGZ3Xkfq9OM6vdyggkMQ4Bj8NlMzrLA5ataSVHkrzHaCs

We belong originally to Khanna . In 1948 our family started RMI Cycles at Rajpura . In 1962 minority shareholders' group headed by my real Fufaji, Mr. Hari Chand Goyal bought us out in a Board Room coup . Later our family put up Rieta Biscuits in Industrial Area near Anaz Mandi in Patiala . This was also sold out to Mr.Sanjiv and Mr. Rajiv , sons of Seth Charan Das of Malwa / Phul Cinemas . Rieta Biscuits became Bakeman
A Personal / Family Anecdote
Immediately after Independence our family was granted a licence , on very liberal terms ,to set up a Light Engineering Unit at Rajpura ( Punjab ) .
When one of my Uncles ( Taya ji ) , Late Sant Lal Aggarwal JI was in England ,around 1948, ( as nearly all the bicycle manufacturing machinery was imported ) he went one evening with friends / relatives to a Restaurant in London.
After the meal my Uncle gave a tip of 1 Pound to the English Waiter. The Waiter , in return , gave a Majestic Salute to my uncle.
My Uncle , again , took out another Note and gave tip and the White Waiter , again Saluted.
My uncle went on giving the notes and receiving salutes till all the money in his wallet was exhausted.
His co diners were , naturally , very surprised and asked him the reason.
Uncle replied :-
" YEH ANGREJ JO KAL TAK HUM PAR RAAJ KARTEY THEY AAJ HAMAREY EK NOTE DENEY PAR HAMEY SALAAM MARTEY HAIN. ISS SEY JAYADA JINDAGI MEIN HAMAREY LIYE AUR KYA KHUSHI HOGI .
