Late Sri Om Prakash Ahuja (Founder)
Om Prakash Ahuja founded this company in 1973 in Haridwar, the holy city situated on the banks of river Ganga. Even though the official registration of company was done in 1973, he had been dealing in this line of business since 1960.
Since his childhood, he was fascinated towards Rudraksha and Gemstones. As a keen reader, he studied a lot about them before deciding to enter this field of business and establishing Om Prakash & Sons. During this time, the subject and knowledge of Gemstones and Rudraksha was limited to saints and astrologers. He wanted to spread the knowledge about these power objects with the people, and that is when he decided to write a book. This book was called “Ratna Rahasya” (Secret of Gems). Later, he also wrote another book called “The Power of Rudraksha”. Both these books became very popular and were appreciated by people worldwide. Om Prakash Ahuja was instrumental in spreading awareness about Rudraksha & Gemstones, and his contribution in this field can never be forgotten.
Mukesh Ahuja is the eldest son of Om Prakash Ahuja. Under the guidance of his father, he spearheaded Om Prakash & Sons along with his brothers to becoming one of the most renowned names in the field of Rudraksha and Gemstones. Passionate about his father’s mission of spreading awareness about Gemstones and Rudraksha, he worked hard towards making Om Prakash & Sons a reputable & recognizable company not just in India but across the world.

He heads the department of Rudraksha at Om Prakash and Sons. From sourcing / buying of Rudraksha to sorting on the basis of size, weight, faces (mukhis) and origin, he handles it all. The most premium quality of Rudraksha comes from Nepal and Pawan specializes in sourcing of these divine power objects right at the source in Nepal. With his constant efforts & hard work, Om Prakash & Sons is now the biggest dealer of Nepali Rudraksha in the world.
