Mamata said, "I am saying, take one thousand rupees, buy a kettle with it and buy some earthen pots. Have some biscuits with it. It will increase slowly. In the first week, take some biscuits, then in the next week ask your mother to make some ghugni. Next week, fry some Telebhaja. Sat down with a tool and another table. Durga Puja is coming. I assure you that you will not be able to match the demand of the people. If someone sarcastically says you are doing this? Say this is how I will become a millionaire."
