The Kali Ghat in the city of Calcutta saw the birth of Rajnarayan Dube in the year 1910 on 10th October. He was alumni of the first oldest modern educational institution in Asia Hindu School Kolkata. Rajnarayan Dube went on to become what people called him Pillar of Indian Cinema. His grandfather was one of the closest associate of greatest revolutionary Chapekar Brothers and prestigious wrestler of that era. He used to teach the students of Akhada. His father Seth Badriprasad Dube was one of the prestigious business tycoon from India and was the financier of first talkie movie of India, Alam Ara in 1931. Rajnarayan Dube started early at a young age of 16. Moving to Bombay was the first step of his journey. In Bombay where his father Seth Badriprasad Dube, a business tycoon had a running business of financial services (money lending) got great help with his joining. After starting young Rajnarayan Dube with guidance of his father went on to establish Dube Industries which played a vital role in development of Bombay at that time. It had a diverse portfolio of Construction, Finance and Share Market.
Dube worked to explore the possibility of respectable business. It was 1929. The Britishers were ruling India, the time when the young sanatani Dube saw patriotic revolutionaries were sacrificing their lives for the freedom of their motherland. The business tycoons were wholeheartedly dedicated to feet of so called pacifists who wanted to have a transfer of power with the enemies of the nation. The poor slave Indians were shouting slogans for the pseudo peace lovers and were beaten mercilessly by the British Empire and our own Indian Englishmen were making accords shamelessly.
The industrialists funding the pacifists shamelessly, but intentionally. The young dreamer of mere nineteen years Rajnarayan Dube understood the bitter truth of Indian independence movement. Rajnarayan Dube's heart was disturbed. Only due to the lack of money, the empty stomach, deprived of every facility Crusader sons of Mother Bharti were going to the gallows, but no one was there to support them financially. They couldn’t get any medical or legal help... Rajnarayan Dube took a historic decision after seeing the capital flows in the footsteps of the facilitators in the name of freedom movement. With the intention of generating capital and reaching it to the real needy and the real cause and purpose, he started Dube Industries in Mumbai. He was blessed with passion, patience and unparalleled business skill. Rajnarayan Dube established his Dube Industries, in the most unfortunate circumstances as the most successful industry of his time. On one side, Rajnarayan Dube presented himself as a dedicated industrialist from the outset and, on the other side, with the voice of his soul, he kept discussions with revolutionaries and started the secret donation process. Due to the very act many obstacles, inconveniences faced by the family. Family, friends, relatives and the society tried to convince him several times, But Rajnarayan Dube was the master of his mind. When the devotional sanatani voice rises up, when does the crazy person listen to anybody? On one hand, he continued to expand his business. From finance to agriculture based business wherever there was business opportunity Rajnarayan Dube Spread his skills to expand his ambition. Rajnarayan Dube met Chandra Shekhar Azad, the great revolutionary at Jhansi in 1930. It needed great courage and daring for a twenty-year-old boy to meet a lion like Azad. Azad was delighted to see the well-built physique with six feet two inches’ height of Rajnarayan Dube. Rajnarayan Dube told Azad that they both are followers and belong to the Akhada culture. It is said that Rajnarayan Dube used to fund the revolutionaries secretly in a pseudo name, which seems to be true according to the personality of Rajnarayan Dube.
Rajnarayan Dube kept the Dube Industries engaged in the bondage of ethnicity among all business obligations. It is an old saying that emotions do not have any value in the business, but Sanatani son of the sages Rajnarayan Dube had never made business-wealth, capital unethically. Rajnarayan Dube, as an engrossing art lover evolved in the form of a boon to cinema and established Bombay Talkies with Himanshu Roy in 1935 to fulfill the great purpose of bringing the cinema out of the perimeter of the then-occupied beliefs. In the history of Bombay Talkies , the beauty of cinema began to shine like the sun. Due to his commercial intelligence, vision and dedication to the art, science and commerce Rajnarayan Dube evolved as a reasonable norm and example in the business and art circles. The time is mighty. Time decides the fate, Bombay Talkies got the eclipse of self-interest-ego-deceit of its own people. This was the biggest blow to Rajnarayan Dube's eternal soul, and Rajnarayan Dube with a heavy and broken heart wrote the final chapter of Bombay Talkies with his own hands. Bombay Talkies closed in 1954. Now it was time that when Rajnarayan Dube concentrated all his energy on the Dube Industries.
