It began with a simple man
wanting to do the right thing.

A simple man with lofty ideals, a visionary in the truest sense of the word, Shri. N. Ranga Rao, displayed exceptional entrepreneurial traits, since an early age.

He had his share of troubles and hurdles in his formative years, but used them to hone his business and life skills. Before long, he dreamed of founding an incense stick manufacturing company, and envisaged it as a leading company in the country.

The right thing at the right time,

year after year.

Journey through our timeline.

A fragrant story about
70 years of purity.

With inspiring

passion and

determination,

the prolific businessman gave wings to his dream with the launch of Mysore Products and General Trading Company in 1948. His vision stemmed from the conviction that "Quality backed by services will pay".

Legacy

Within months of its inception, the business grew satisfactorily. It was time for brand Cycle to be born. Committed to quality, Cycle had a series of firsts in the incense manufacturing history. Cycle was the first company to obtain design copyrights to make an exciting range of incense sticks, cones, and sambrani.

In order to create exquisite fragrances in the perfumery industry, the company set up its own in-house fragrance creation workshop.

Despite the heights of success that the Company went on to reach, Shri. Ranga Rao remained grounded. He stayed devoted to the wellbeing of those around him, and committed to doing the right thing.

He saw the relevance of his products and realised the sacred role they played in the hopes and aspirations of people. To uphold this great responsibility, he constantly strived to instill a strong sense of ethics in the business, and even took on the greater responsibility of the well-being of society at large.

Over the decades, Shri. N. Ranga Rao's dream has been taken forward by the successive generations, and today Cycle Pure Agarbathies is a world leader in puja-needs and home care, and

is exported to

over 65 countries.
