As though he was born with inks in his blood, Satish Nayak, MD and co-founder of Bodhi Professional Solutions (P) Ltd is today a colour management expert from heart and soul. He still remembers how his father’s printing business inspired him in those younger years. “I was barely a boy in my early teens when my father introduced me to the world of printing that fascinated me like nothing else before,” he recollects. His father was one of the pioneers who founded the Karnataka Offset Printers Association (KOPA).

As time went by, Satish being passionate about printing and graphic industry eventually got the opportunity to work in the research division of Dainippon Screen Engineering of America (DSEA) and Dainippon Screen Canada for more than a decade before he returned to India over the news of his father’s demise in 2001. “I finally decided to settle in India to open a new company that can provide new standards which the industry has never been achieved,” says Satish.

Birth of Bodhi

“It was when I stood at a threshold with a little confusion and anxiety to open a new company, my mother went to Bodh Gaya in Bihar to conduct last rites for my father. She brought home a Peepal leaf used in the ritual at the shrine. It was the leaf that instilled me everything about my current company Bodhi Professional Solutions,” narrates Satish adding that company’s logo was derived from the carbon-dated Peepal leaf his mother brought from Bodh Gaya. He further explains that business is all about connection with customers and the concept is represented by the connecting vein loops showing in the divine leaf. The term ‘Bodhi’ literally meaning ‘knowledge’ in Hindi was what it finally coined the company’s slogan ‘Our Knowledge, Your Future’ to signify their standardisation activities for customers.

Packaging parameter has been one such area which Bodhi has pulled off big achievements. “Apart from other domains in the current print market, packaging segment is now growing and expected to expand extensively in near future,” remarks Satish
