Ravi Shetty – Mangalore's Pride in Qatar
By Gladson Almeida and Alexis Castelino

Daijiworld Media Network - Doha

June 26, 2011

It is not 'achievement' that makes one great but the way achievement is handled. Being successful is not the issue but 'living the success' surely needs a character of steel, resolution of a sage and hard work of an ant. No one is born great and therefore whoever achieves greatness must pass through testing times and turbulent storms in life. So those who emerge victorious through this grinding, often have a level head on their shoulders and a firm feet that is rooted ever. They are not only successful but also lead others on the way to success. They pick each stone pelted at them with equanimity and build on.

Ravi Shetty, the managing director of Advanced Technical Services (ATS), Qatar is the living example of this. He is fondly known by his peers and well-wishers as Ravi Anna and truly he is an 'Anna' to his staff too. Ravi is a man of few words but great deeds. He is an unsung hero who has come triumphant in life through sheer dedication and hard work. Today though he lords over a successful business venture, he still remains unassuming, approachable, soft-spoken and perfectly poised. He is a perfect role model that aspiring entrepreneurs should look up to.

Ravi Shetty, hailing from Doninjeguttu family in Mangalore taluk, was born in Moodambail, Bantwal taluk as the eldest of the five children of pious couple Thimmappa Shetty and  Sarojini Shetty on December 4, 1963. Few might have thought then that the studious Ravi would reach to these heights. Perhaps being the eldest among two brothers and three sisters helped him to learn a few lessons in life at a tender age itself. He had the responsibility of his younger siblings and naturally this responsibility instilled in him the spirit of hard work and dedication.

He was always good at academics and right through his school days, whether as a student at Moodambail primary school or at well-known Deepika high school at Modankaup, he topped the academic charts. In fact he stood first at the school in his SSLC public exams and pursued his pre-university studies at SVS College, Bantwal. He chose to be a mechanical engineer and came out with flying colours from the prestigious SDM Engineering college of Dharwad. His brilliant academic record secured him a trainee job with the reputed Simon Carves India Ltd, at their Mazgaon Dock (MDL) Yard in Mangalore from where he swiftly climbed on to the ladder of success and joined Tata Projects in Mumbai in the year 1987. He then moved to various Projects all over India and finally settled at their head office in Hyderabad and continued to be with them till 1997. As destiny had it, owing to some invariable personal and professional reasons, he moved to Doha-Qatar in 1997 and joined Mannai Corporation (MECON), one of the biggest business empires in Qatar as senior engineer. His commitment to work and his single-minded dedication soon helped him to climb the rungs and he was appointed as the Proposals Manager and was responsible for securing many major contracts from local and international companies.

It was perhaps at this stage of his life that he felt that it was time for him to venture into his own business. By then he had about 20 years of experience in India and Middle East in the field of construction in oil and gas industries. He had got the necessary opportunities and exposure in the line of contract negotiations by visiting many countries across the globe. Further the desire to help people to achieve greater goals and give back to society in his own way had always been his inspiration. Though he was the first-generation entrepreneur in his family, he had the experience of establishing and running two successful A Grade restaurants (vegetarian) and a boutique while in Hyderabad. He had a taste for business and a constant itching to script great things. So after studying the rudiments of business carefully, he established Advanced Technical Services Co. WLL (ATS) in 2005. ATS was established with the main objective of providing professional and efficient services to the industries in Qatar by undertaking construction works, providing highly skilled manpower, plant and machinery, construction consumables, camp furnishing materials and also specialized services directly or in the form of representing international companies. Today it also owns fleet of specialized testing and construction equipment.

Ravi always had belief in his credentials and knew that dedication and hard work was his forte. But more than this, he had the blessings of his parents and unflinching, constant support of his life partner Jyothi. Ravi Shetty tells that his wife has been his real pillar of strength and has stood by him in thick and thin eversince their marriage in 1992. Jyothi is the daughter of Yethamogaru Krishna Alva and Kolnadguttu Vajrakshi Alva. Ravi and Jyothi Shetty couple has been blessed with two children. Roshan, the eldest son is studying in 12the standard while their daughter Rachana is a Grade 5th student at Birla School, Qatar.

ATS Qatar which was started with just one person in 2005 today employs over 350 people. Ravi Shetty proudly states that more than 50% of his work force that consists of Hindus, Muslims and Christians alike, comes from the undivided Dakshina Kannada district. “Business interest has always been there and that has motivated to move further. But right from the day one I knew my social and corporate responsibility. This helped me to contribute in whatever little way towards the development of society, my native and people of my native land,” states Ravi Shetty. Just like any other business he had initial times of struggle, rough weathers. But he prevailed over them and is quick to say that as a successful business man he still has a long way to go. “Further whatever ATS is today, is owing to the dedication and sincere services of many loyal and dedicated staff," he adds.

Ravi Shetty knows the necessities of times well and despite his busy schedule, has kept himself updated with academics too. He has completed his MBA which further shows as how dedicated and passionate is he towards his business. He is also the director of Modern Safety Glass Company and CP Agencies in Hyderabad. But he is still as humble as he was and commends immense respect from his employees, friends and near and dear ones.

Ravi Shetty is known for his charity and contribution towards social causes both in Qatar and back in India and he tries his best to support those associations which are actively involved in humanitarian activities such as Integrated welfare Society in Hyderabad. Here in Qatar he has always been in the forefront in reaching to those expatriates who are in hospitals or in any other need. “I could never say NO to anyone who came to me anytime. Even while I was working, many a  times went out of my way to help someone, especially those seeking jobs here in Qatar. I never helped anyone based on their community and hence today I am accepted and welcomed by people and organizations of all communities, languages and cultures,” he opines.

Apart from his business and professional interests, Ravi Shetty is actively involved in many cultural and social activities in Qatar through various organizations. He is the founder member of Tulu Koota Qatar and has led the organization as the president too.  Back in Hyderabad too, he was the founder secretary of Tata Sports and Recreational Club. At present he is leading the Bunts Qatar and is the life member of ICC, ICBF and Karnataka Sangha Qatar. He is also a great sports lover and a sportsman himself. He has always highlighted the native culture and traditions even during the annual celebrations of his company and also has lent support to talented artists from his native place to perform in Qatar. ATS Day, which is company's annual day celebrations every year is an unique event wherein all the employees get an opportunity to celebrate, enjoy  and showcase their talents, is being loved and appreciated by one and all. He was the man behind staging yakshagana for the first time in Doha both for his company and during Vishwa Kannada Sammelana.

Ravi Anna is a rare gem and an even rare Boss. A true gentleman, a thorough professional, a perfect role model and a loving and caring human being. In these modern times, when it is becoming extremely hard to find entrepreneurs with hearts that beat for others' welfare and upliftment of society, Ravi Shetty stands tall as a beacon light. Youngsters who take leaf from his life will surely meet success. He is a businessman who is to be emulated. Ask his employees about him and they all will speak about his generosity, affection, friendship and down-to-earth nature. He is a true Mangalorean who has added a glittering feather to the cap of Mangalorean expatriates not only in Qatar but across the GCC countries.

I must admit honestly that the article made me feel touched. Even though some of the points mentioned seem to be more than what I deserve, I humbly accept the accolades in the article written carefully by my dear friends Alex & Gladson with the patronage of Daiji world. The web as we all know is an effective & powerful tool to reach out to the people & Daiji has done a fantastic job of using it to the full potential. I sincerely appreciate the subtle efforts put in by Daiji world team who tirelessly & dedicatedly put Dakshina Kannada in focus all the time with timely articles & news

I am grateful to my Colleagues,Family,Friends,,elders,well wishers who have supported me selflessly all through out my entrepreneur efforts.. I am so lucky to get such a wonderful team of people, may it be friends, colleagues or my family. These acted as the very pillars of strength when ever I needed.

I would also like to place my sincere thanks to all of you who have responded with your heart warming comments & wishes. I believe that all this will give me more encouragement & incentive to work harder & to set new bench marks & strive to achieve them. I have read all comments & wish to state here that some of them I need to personally address especially the ones from elders. I feel so happy to get in touch with so many of my old friends.

Sandhya Rai, DohaFriday, July 01, 2011
I always heard many narratives from my husband about Ravi anna and his family and wondered if they were true. This article proves them all and much beyond my imagination.
Being new to Doha had strange feelings going in my mind about the place but i received the much needed comfort zone from Ravi anna and Jyothiakka. Be it an infant or an old man, rich or poor I witnessed same amount of respect giving from Ravi anna. I agree to the fact that if you go with some problem to Ravi anna, you will not be sent back without a solution. It’s surprisely and rare to see a spirited “business tycoon” with such a down to earth attitude.
It might be easy to earn money but a hard task to gain people’s respect and blessings. The enormous list of comments on this article wishing you luck and success is one of the proving fact that you have been accepted heartly by all of them.You have and will be a clear inspiration to the upcoming entrepreneurs.
We wish you and your family heartly congratulations for all the achievements so far and hope you will succeed to greater heights in the years to come.
And as the famous quote states ‘Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you will land among the stars.’

It is really Ideal story, and model to all. It is not money makes a Man. It is idealogy, vision to service and grow. He has made Mangalore/Karnataka proud. I happened to play Badminton against him. His approach is excellent. Hope this inspires others and make Mangalore/Karnataka shine in the world.

Let me on the out set congratulate Mr.Gladson Almeida and Mr.Alexis Castelino along with Daiji World for bringing out an article with immense commitment on Ravi Shetty!!I believe that subtle points of Ravi’s benevolent character have been touched upon in an excellent way! To read an article about a person whom you have seen from close quarters is inspiring & heart warming…I am sure a lot of his admirers whose tribe grows will agree with me today here is a self made man with no ‘God Father” who believed in himself who worked sincerely & dedicatedly for making a modest career but achieved much more than what he set out for.

I believe that he carries along all his associates on his broad shoulders not letting go any one be it a family member, Colleague, friend or an acquaintance through thick & thin….

I wish to add here that whatever he did he did it with utmost commitment & this I believe is his mantra for success business wise or otherwise.We should consider ourselves lucky to have him in our lives,,,, God bless

SANDEEP, PutturWednesday, June 29, 2011
When I was young I heard about him through
my elders. When I grown I had chance to see him from very near.
Ravi shetty a thoroughly a gentleman , I seen him building ATS
brick by brick.
In my opinion he is less a businessman ,but more a great human being.
Unlike other businessmen, I seen him even during his tougher days
he was not behind the money. Money followed him he never followed the money.
Most noticeable thing today is , he achieved a lot from his humble roots.
He helped many who approached him. Back home hundreds of families thank him
from the bottom of the heart for his service to the society.
At this moment I pray almighty god give him much more energy to build ATS,
So that back many families would benefit. Finally I wish him and all family very happy
and prosperous future for him.

A prodigy,everyone's dear Ravianna and my very dear Ravi mama,a benevolent personality,a rare gem to my grandparents,a boon on this earth and to our family is what I would rather proudly say.
Stepping on the rungs of oppurtunity and climbing the ladder of success with grit and determination,perseverance and dedication is what I've actually seen in him all through from years back and am sure it'll continue as to reach greater and greater heights.
And ofcourse,I owe the credit of his laurels to my loving mami too,an unflappable personality I always admire.

Ravianna is much more than described in this article-a pure soul with smile always.I am fortunate to have been associated with him since 1998. Even then he was a simple 'Mannai Man' in Qatar on toes caring,sharing & extending all possible help to others selflessly-a friend whom i cherish wholeheartedly.A true friend worth being emulated.
Hats off to you Ravianna.

Shettys` mostly excel in Hotel and Catering business, but Mr. Ravi is an exception. It is pleasing to note that he has almost single handedly built up his engineering services company and doing all the good work mentioned in the article. Keep going with your entrepreneural and philanthropic work Ravi, especially keeping your employees happy. God Bless you and your lovely family.

I had got an opportunity to meet Mr.Shetty and be a part of their cultural show that was organised couple of years back. Frankly , i havent read this article yet. But its just the 'Title' of this article makes me write a comment on this man. He is a person to be admired. I wish him success all while.

Antony T. D' Souza, Karkala / QatarSunday, June 26, 2011
Combined effort by locally based Daijiworld reporters, Mr. Almeida and Mr. Castelino, the prime space occupied here for the article itself shows how important person is Mr. Ravi Shetty for Doha society, GCC and back in Mangalore or Hydarabad. Each words ed in the article are commendable shedding perfect light upon Mr. Shetty’s dedication to once own brilliant qualifications, leadership qualities, affection to his employees, sportsmanship, communal harmony, an educated businessman and entrepreneur , to raise to the occasion to upheld traditional culture and folkways in Doha. Nevertheless, for myself, above all what impresses is his level headedness, gentle approach and shrewd smile, helping the needy to find a job is itself a huge virtue, down to earth men of divine qualities - serving the humanity selflessly.
Furthermore , what can I write more but only in wishing Mr. Shetty to raise to the stature of Mr. Alva, Mr. Hegde, Mr. Shetty with whom he is intermingling in above photos perhaps to assimilate them sooner which is not beyond his capabilities and humble virtues. Such leaders should be encouraged. Good luck ‘Ravi Anna’.
