Alang-Sosiyo, a very famous place of Gujarat for shipbreaking industry. More than 100 ships of 20-25 k tons weight are parked here and nearly 3000 workers from Jharkhand, UP, Bihar and Orissa are on job here to dismantle them. Rs. 2/kg profit can make you crorepati in 3 months here provided you have a plot and liquidity of money. The major scraps is of iron, disposed off from the site. Other than iron, more than 300 plots are flooded with goods from the ships (furniture, plywood, kitchenware, decorative, etc) for home consumption and commercial use. Individuals, Hotel industry and community centres are buyers of such goods. Many people visit the place everyday.

When he used to read news about Alang no.1 in Asia but no facilities of lodging, he decided to start a hotel. He used front site of his farm for the hotel, and rest of the farm is serving him as backhand support supplying vegetables, cereal, milk products and fruits. Whatever served here are home made from his house and farm. Everything is "made in Popatlal".
