In the meantime, he divulged himself into planning trips for his family and friends, fulfilling his desire to take people to places they had never been before.
Now along with his two sons, he has expanded his business into a global enterprise with seven offices across India, USA and the UK. Over the years, Mr. Shah has donated significant funds worth £200,000 to organsiations such as Big Hug Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Akshay Patra and Oxfam since 2008.
