Interviews

Mr. Tarun Mathur knows well what changes recognition can bring to a person’s life. He is the founder of the organisation Hamari Pahchan. It is a NGO which is very much different from other NGOs. Here Mr. Tarun Mathur shares his experience and story behind Hamari Pahchan.

 

Mr. Tarun Mathur

 

Mr. Tarun Mathur realised the importance of “recognition” when he was very young. From his school days he was very much interested in sports and he was a talented chess player who won many awards at national and international level. Air India recognised his talent and offered him an honorary position. Even today he is working in Air India. But people did not give much importance to this game. And in India he did not get the recognition he deserved. This triggered him to start Galaxies Production House.

Galaxies Production House was started to help talented people to showcase their talents and get the recognition they deserved. People skilled in any field like sports, music, theatre arts, standup comedy were able to get a recognition through Galaxies Production House. Talented people from underprivileged sections of the society, those who cannot afford to pay for a coach or join a practice session to improve their skills were recognised by Galaxies Production House. They were helped to hone their skills and got recognised by winning competitions. Sometimes people were aided to polish their talents and then they made a livelihood through it.

Harish Sharma, son of an autorickshaw driver, was a talented chess player whose talent was recognised by Mr. Tarun Mathur. He helped the boy to develop his skills and he became the Champion of Delhi State Chess Tournament in 2010. He is now working in Northern Railways.

Mr. Tarun Mathur is definitely a man with a golden heart. Right from his school days he has been helping poor and sick people. Even his parents did not know about it. He paid the school fees for his friends who were unable to pay it due to the financial condition of their families. His wife Ms.Anjali Mathur provides huge support to him. She also had the habit of helping sick and poor people. This made them to think about starting their own NGO to help the needy people. This paved the way for Hamari Pahchan.

Hamari Pahchan helps all people without differentiating them according to their gender, age group or social status. It helps elderly, sick and underprevileged by providing them with food, clothes, medicines and even counseling. It also conducts awareness programs for women and children and skill development programs for all. They help talented people to utilise their skills and set up their own business. Those who benefitted motivate other people with talents to approach Hamari Pahchan to hone their skills and get a recognition.

The Save Delhi Brave Delhi drive was initiated by Mr. Tarun Mathur and his wife. The Nirbhaya incident affected him deeply and it was the reason behind this. He wants to make Delhi safe for women and children. He joined hands with President Mr. Venkaiah Naidu to install multiple cameras in various places in Delhi to bring down the crime rate and eliminate it completely. Later this was followed all over India.

Mr. Tarun Mathur wants the children to be aware of their “right to play”. He points out that playing is important for a child’s development. Hamari Pahchan also provides education to slum children. They also educate the children about Good Touch and Bad Touch through their Drishti project.

Mr. Tarun Mathur is a man who provides relief and spreads smiles. He is also a debater and a panelist in many debate shows regarding social issues in channels like Sahara Samay live, News18 and News 24.

Mr. Tarun Mathur urges the youth of India to take efforts to develop their skills and lead a happy and successful life. Every person deserves a recognition. Getting a recognition gives him more satisfaction than anything else. So Hamari Pahchan is undoubtedly the best organisation which helps people develop their skills and empower themselves. It will help them to create their own identity and lead a life with dignity.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Shruti Kapoor is a renowned economist, women’s rights activist and social entrepreneur from India. She is the founder of Sayfty, an initiative that aims to educate and empower young women and girls against all forms of violence.

Recently I had the privilege to interview Dr. Shruti Kapoor who currently resides in USA. She is a morale booster for women and girls who are being victimized on the basis of gender inequality and violence. She established an NGO called The Sayfty which is recognized internationally and is a forerunner in the upliftment of the status of women and girls in the society.

What motivated you to start the Sayfty NGO?

I was motivated to start an organization right after the Nirbhaya incident (December 2012). I wanted to attribute something about the safety of women. After going out of India, in the 70’s and 80’s there were not much conversation about women’s safety. Most of the time we tell our girls to ignore if somebody harasses them or if they experience any sort of sexual violence and are asked to stay quiet about it because it is a shame to the girl and her family. So I wanted to change that aspect and I wanted women and girls to feel more confident about safety, speak out against violent experiences, to report it and tell the Indian community to remove the shame around the topic of sexual violence. This is the reason I started working in this area and that’s how Sayfty is formed.

What is the motto of Sayfty?

Our motto is to educate and empower women against gender based violence.

You studied in India as well as in the US. Whose style of teaching did you like the most?

I definitely enjoyed the US style of teaching more, especially after high school because there was more stress on understanding concepts and applying those concepts. In India when I went to college, the main crux was about learning all the information and later using that information in the exams, getting good marks was more important. Whether or not you understood the concept is not important and most teachers often don’t pay attention or care. It’s all about notes, learning the notes and later using them in the exams. (bolte hai na ratta lagake exam dena – as they say mug up everything and give the exam) . That I did not enjoy much. Everyone gave importance to marks, how much you scored and how well you did.  In the US it’s all about how you performed overall and not only studying. they give you more opportunities to excel.

Tell our readers about Sayfty chat, zero tolerance and voice of the weak programs.

So Sayfty chat is our weekly prep chat. Every week we invite our guest organization and guest experts to come and speak at the chat for one hour (every Monday) from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM (IST) and we along with the guest choose one topic which is related to women’s safety in general. For example,  we talked about cyber safety. There was an expert from Canada who discussed about cyber safety and answered 5 questions. Our global community on twitter follows and addresses these questions. For example, how do we keep our stuff safe online? Or what are the things we do online? If you being harassed online then what do you do? How to reach out for help? We pick a topic and discuss it in the Sayfty chat. Every week, we pick one person from any country in the world to be our voice of the week. We use twitter as the platform to raise awareness about women’s safety, gender based violence and gender equality. For example if you be our voice of the week you can use our twitter platform and raise awareness and talk about these issues. Zero tolerance is the campaign that we started in collaboration with The Red Elephant and our aim was to pick one topic each month and talk about it. For example: what is marital rape and how do you define it, what are the Indian laws associated with marital rape and how do you know if you are experiencing this problem and what should you do. Let’s say you are a victim of marital rape and what do you do next? For an entire year every month we discussed one specific topic related to gender based violence in India. We talked about the concept, the laws, how to identify it and what you should do if you are experiencing it.

When you were nominated by the White House as a change maker for the United States for Women summit 2016, what were your feelings?

It was obviously very prestigious that I was nominated as a change maker for all the work we have been doing and I was very excited. All the nominated change makers attended the conference in Washington DC where we had President Obama, Michelle Obama, people like Oprah and Vinci who came and motivated us. It was definitely a moment to celebrate and we were excited and joyous about the work and also inspiring because we met so many other women who are doing such good work and also connect with them which inspired us to do more better work.

Do you think media can act as a tool for gender equality?

I very strongly believe that media acts as a tool for gender equality. In today’s world media reaches out to millions of people. For example in India, Bollywood reaches out to millions of people. It is a powerful tool to spread the right message. In our Indian movies, we can talk about justification of women and girls by producing more movies like Dangal which are topics of women empowerment. I think the message through media to larger audiences will be great and impactful. Media whether it is TV, radio, movies or social media should be used to advocate gender equality. Media is very powerful and should definitely be used as a tool for gender equality.

You worked for World Bank. Can you share your experience with our reader’s?

I moved to the US in 2000 to pursue my Masters in Economics and when I graduated in 2002, I got a job as a consultant in the World Bank. It was my first job experience right after college and was a truly remarkable experience because I got to work on various projects and started working on development of Central Asia and human development sector at the World Bank. As a graduate, it was a great learning experience for me as I learned to work on projects like poverty, shelter and nutrition. I contributed to projects like rural electrification, its impact on education and shelter. People at the World Bank are very inspiring and motivated to me pursue to Ph.D in Economics. It was one of my dream jobs as an economist and working at the World Bank is really a dream come true at that time.

What are your future plans on uplifting the status of women?

I am a very strong gender equality activist and I am very passionate about women empowerment and safety. In the near future this is something I will be advocating using my voice and platform to speak out against gender based violence and ensure that we as citizens in our day to day life should contribute a bit for gender equality. A lot of people ask me what is that I can do, and I always tell them to start with where you are and what you have. Like today you can provide your boys and girls in terms of education and opportunities. In the next 2 years I will be advocating more and more on gender equality and women’s safety. People should be reminded that girls are equally important and equally capable as boys.

What is your message to youth?

Youth must actively engage and get involved in every sustainable goal and whatever you are passionate about like climate change, gender equality. Youth today has the power of social media. They are creative, intelligent and smart. Youth should use their voice and platform to make a difference and create an impact in whatever they are passionate about through the social media.

 

“Disability in women doesn’t mean lack of capacity.” This is what Dr. Lavanya Seshasayee is steadfast to prove. And she, herself is a proof. Once a woman with Schizophrenia, Dr.Lavanya Seshasayee is now, the founder of ‘THE GLOBAL WOMEN’S RECOVERY MOVEMENT’ which was started in 2017. Previously, the movement was called ‘THE INDIAN WOMEN’S RECOVERY MOVEMENT’, and it was started by Seshasayee in 2011. GWRM with its headquarters in Bangalore, India, is led by women, of women and for women across the world. The need for GWRM/IWRM dawned from her own personal journey with Schizophrenia. Back then, there was gender insensitivity in the context of mental health in India. Also, the women entering Psychiatric clinics were never empowered. The movement addresses these issues and now women across the globe connect and contribute their ideas pertaining to how women’s mental health problems can be resolved. She, in earlier days worked with many NGOs for over six years before starting GWRM.

IWRM working at Bangalore Beggar’s Colony in 2013

Ironically, in the late 90’s, when the doctors had declared her a ‘medical failure’ and said she was incapable of doing anything, she made quite an impressive academic achievement. She did PhD in Mental Health which dealt with mental health problems Indian Women faced during various phases of their lives. Her passion for Psychology goes way back to the time when she was doing her bachelor’s. She passed out of BA in Journalism, English literature and Women’s Studies with a silver medal when she was undergoing her journey through Schizophrenia. She says she came up with a support system called “FSA- Feminist Self Advocacy” during her lucid moments between her episodes of Psychosis. FSA is now named “WSEA – Women’s Self Empowerment and Advocacy”. She never believed in implementation of only biomedical therapeutic models on patients which is why she devised this user survivor system to be combined with biomedical approach. Her mother implemented this support system on her and with continuous feedback of her caregiver’s behaviour towards her, about her needs and regarding what it felt like to be her during those days, this model was a success.

While this may be how she dealt with Schizophrenia, she aids her ‘Clients’ with similar User-Support Systems.She says the most dignified way to address the people entering Psychiatric treatments would be ‘clientele’, not as patients. The movement is all about empowerment of women with gender sensitive cum rights based approach in solving mental health problems and issues of women. Here, the psychiatrists are trained to implement a ‘capabilities informed approach’ and caregivers are trained to relearn communication with their clients in an empathetic way. She points that the movement is all about clients, they can interact with professionals at every step and can decide their own model of recovery. Clients learn to be very strong and learn strategies to deal with cultural imperialists. She thinks being ‘anti-establishment’ is an asset to solve problems of Psychosocially Challenged women because it means that you have the grit to disagree with the unjust system and fight against it without being antagonised by your surroundings.

A man with mental illness sharing his story

Seshasayee was one of the 9 people who were completely funded to attend the Global Mental Health Summit held in 2009 in Athens, Greece by the World Psychiatric Association. The conference was about scaling up biomedical solutions in tackling mental health issues in developing and underdeveloped countries. She disagreed with that since she thinks it engages in commercialization and over medicalization which in reality can be solved by changing social attitudes and environments that are incapacitating. She was also invited to draft a white paper by Indian Government in 2009 to rewrite laws for mentally ill. She and other experts advocated various changes to be made in Mental Health Act of 1987. She tried to make the laws more in consonance with UNCRPD United Nations Convention For Rights Of People With Disabilities, which attributes social, political, cultural, economic and legal barriers rather than biomedical reasons to disability.

She is a part of the ‘VOICES’ PROJECT instituted by the National University of Ireland-Galway [NUIG]. She wrote a chapter “The Phoenix Rises” sharing her story pertaining to deprivation of full legal capacity, how it affected her and changes to be made in legal laws. NUIG plans to release it as a book with stories of various other distinguished disability advocates. She is also writing a book on realities faced by psychosocially challenged women which is basically from her life experiences. She gives individual counselling as well and looks ahead to open a college for mental health and train more self advocates to share their stories which she believes will create a snowballing effect in the recovery of clients.

Today, she is one successful self-advocate for mental health promotion who was trained by her Guru, Dr.Bhargavi Davar whom she aspires to emulate. Dr.Davar is a strong mental health activist and founder of the Bapu Trust for Research on Mind and Discourse, who promotes creative and non-psychiatric approaches to treat mental illness. GWRM has had phenomenal response from around the globe and she says the attitude towards women are no better in foreign nations but the tremendous family support  provided to  clients can be an added advantage in India despite the shortage of psychiatrists.

Finally, she says a likeminded individual can contribute financially or as a volunteer to any of their many programs like The Women Hand-holders’ Program, Habilitation sessions to create Sister Self Advocates, Corporate Projects, Barefoot Peer Supporters. People can also link up with her movement if they are an art therapist, a musician, a body movement therapist, a theatre artist, a legal expert or a women’s activist.

Once, when people thought Schizophrenia would dilapidate her life, she was actually much stronger and used it to make a difference. She is now a doctor who was once a patient. This is what defines Lavanya Seshasayee today. Disabled or not, there are truly no limits to what a human being can do!

“Abled does not mean enabled. Disabled does not mean less abled.” ― Khang Kijarro Nguyen

 

Anil Annaiah, The ChangeMaker, was fascinated with the art of capturing images in a frame at an age as early as 11. Also, passionate about writing poems and essays, he was self-employed as an young entrepreneur. He was the founder and CEO of Annleela, a visual media company  started by him in 1989 during his college days.He worked as ideator, photographer, writer and filmmaker across corporate brands and development world for over a decade. In 1999, he collaborated with International Institute of Sustainable development (IISD), Canada, on a film production. He worked on 5 social marketing feature films about water, empowered by International Organisations, with well known actors across 5 states and in 6 languages.

These experiences made him to use his passion to bring about a change in the society. This is how he became a ChangeMaker. “BrandRadianz – Me The ChangeMaker” was founded in 2001, the same year his first book, “Nobody Speaks To [ME]” was released. He says [ME] is the true inner person residing within each of us. The book was about the need for brands to build radiance in the global society. He says the concept of Brand Radianz was introduced in that book and ideally calls it an “idea book”. The book’s core message stands till this day and it shows the value of the book and more urgent need for all to practice it.

Being a creative storyteller, he creates awareness among people about environment and nature through Art.

 

“Nature is Art for Conservation” is one among many projects of Brand Radianz which is a citizen science initiative using photography where the images challenge our perception of reality. According to him, a citizen scientist would be anyone who becomes aware of nature around him, observes it keenly, tries to understand its changing patterns and becomes an empathy-driven contributor to the larger pool of science data. Through films like “Discovering Science Through Lens,” he reveals nature’s secret for a sustainable environment. Discovering Science Through The Lens was a part of Swissnex – ScienceComm’17, India at the National Institute for Advanced Studies, IISC, Bangalore in June this year. On the account of Earth Day on 22nd April 2017, for the 4th consecutive year, the exhibition ‘Nature is art for conservation’ presented urban green gardens of Singapore in the name ‘City in the Garden Singapore’. In the creative concept of “A New Life Pledge”, he looks to inspire people to take a pledge for Conservation of Biodiversity and to become a citizen scientist.

Annaiah says the need of the hour is to protect our planet from climatic changes and to understand our environment in a holistic manner which is why he encourages people to live with nature and uses powerful and innovative tools to make people consider behavioral changes through projects like ‘SwachaGraha – start 3 Green Spots’. Annaiah says he had an opportunity to interact with leading experts of waste management domain – SWMRT and was inspired by their work before he could design SwachaGraha. 3 Green Spots is for composting your green waste, growing your own greens and using them in your kitchen. Apart from working diligently to bring about behavioral changes in our carefree perception of the environment, he also worked on different societal challenges like Education, Water and Autism awareness over the last two decades. “Now Get In” is a campaign for Autism awareness which is one of his future projects, it features his award-winning documentary “Let’s Leap Forward” as an important learning tool.

To him, Technology is a wonderful tool which would help protect our world. Using this, through Brand Radianz, he aims to impart a constant deep understanding of our problems and to get people engage in issues in which they can participate. Annaiah’s wish is to inspire each person on this planet and make them become ‘Me The ChangeMaker’. Being an author, he is an avid reader and has special interests on autobiographies. He believes that every good book offers us a valuable experience. He also authored 3 other books – Simple Perceptions, New Clouds, and My Mirrors which he says are writings of his thoughts.

Annaiah is multi-talented. Being an artist, filmmaker, photographer, ideator, storyteller, author, and CEO, he knew the techniques to blend those in right proportions to incite changes for social good. Anil Annaiah has a message for aspiring Indian youth, he wants them “to find goals for themselves that are meaningful and to work towards them sincerely. The fast-paced changing times calls for clarity of thought. One should apply their youthful energy and talents wisely. All should choose positive domains to work in and make a lasting contribution to the society we live in.”

If you want to change something, anything, you need to change first. You should be the change. Annaiah is one and wants us also to become one. A change.

                     “What you think, you become

                     What you feel, you attract

                 What you imagine, you create”                                        – Gautama Buddha

Prateek Yadav, memory athlete, 4X Indian memory champion and also the first and only International Grandmaster of Memory from India.

Yadav, 24-year-old is simple, shy, emotional guy who loves to teach others and has an eagerness to learn something new.

Prateek Yadav was naturally blessed with good memory, at a very young age he was able to memorise all the capitals of the world. However, his journey of being a memory athlete started in 2012 when he accidentally came across the championship happening at the global level. It’s been five years now that Yadav is into this field, his success has been embarked by being the first Indian International Grand Master of Memory.

In his whole journey, he pointed out that his parents have been in a great supportive role, who never pressurised him choosing any other “sophisticated” field. His parents had always given him the liberty to try new and unconventional things.

He attributes that  consistent efforts along with perseverance is a prerequisite to succeed. Yadav analyses things very deeply and his life mantra is to keep learning every single day and also to try and help others in their struggles.

Yadav has recently delivered a TEDx UPES talk and stated that it was ecstatic as he had been following it since his college days and had always dreamt of sharing his experience on a global platform like TEDx.

In a country like India, where sports starts with cricket and ends with cricket, being a memory athlete is never an easy call and on being asked how government contributed towards the upliftment of this sport, his answer was quite disheartening as he hasn’t got any kind of help. Despite this, he is very optimistic about the future of such Championship, he asserts that it will take a huge effort from all people who are into this sport like Omkar and Sri Vyshnavi Yarlagadda but India has a good future in this sport too.

According to him, following steps can be adopted by the government to popularise this sport:

  1. By creating awareness in schools and colleges which will change the people’s mindset of believing that only savants can accomplish such sport.
  2. He is particular about the role that teachers should play by focusing on talents and qualities of a student. He suggests that teachers should try to incorporate creative and fun ways to make studies more interesting and claims that a student shouldn’t be judged only on the basis of grades.
  3. Moreover, digital memory competitions are becoming more popular and exciting, hence through rigorous training and with the advent of technology one can make a huge difference.

His “memorable” story has just got wings, and he wants to fly as high as possible and become the World Champion one day. His determination, zeal, enthusiasm to take this sport ahead will surely make India do well in this untouched sport.

One important message that Prateek gave during his interview:
Love what you do and don’t get bogged down by minor ups and downs and give your hundred percent in whatever you do, don’t listen to the sceptics, don’t get bogged down by peer and parental pressure, have faith in yourself and you’re good to go! 

By this, let me conclude with a hope that soon India will be a “memorable” country!

One of the most important topics that have come to debate in the recent past is the one where one’s culture is being influenced by the west. India is a culturally rich country having more than thousands of diversifying cultures which have their history dated back to the beginning , yet it has now fallen prey to the western influence. Thanks to globalization and education. In this forum I would like to bring to the reader’s notice that this has been written in a completely subjective note and hence it is merely voicing out my opinions.
The culture and heritage that we have inherited from our forefathers and ancestors have definitely created an identity for us, a one that has strongly established our existence in the world and making a stamp on everyone’s page signifying our importance and what we represent. There were/are some conditions and superstitions that we would question and yes we have succeeded in removing many forms of evil from our cycle. But at this junction right now, we are blatantly beginning to question the basic elements which are the roots of our culture. The questioning spirit brought about by the rise in intellectual knowledge has fuelled our inquisitiveness to an extent where we question our own identity (indirectly). Further the concept of the world as a global village has further reduced the proximity amongst the different nations thus bringing them closer. This has resulted in cultural interaction and learning one another’s culture. This interaction is very beneficial for all cultures as it educates the others and also increases their knowledge. It might also help them in a certain way to counter problems they face. However the people have now started blindly accepting the western culture without any basic questioning or logic. They have rather started to accept the culture largely because it is followed worldwide and is a pseudo trend. The world then believed that racially the westerners were superior to the rest of the world and now they believe that the lifestyle and culture of the westerners is the global standard for people and society. They however fail to realize that their own indigenous culture is the oldest and has some original meaning concealed in various layers and also it is the one which the world respects. Unlike the American culture which is borrowed from all over the world, ours is one which makes us proud.
We have seen people who forget their mother tongue to start conversing in English so that the world believes that they are educated and literates. We have seen people move on from dhotis and pajamas to jeans and t shirts. People have also moved on from roti and ragi to pizza and pepsi. Let us not forget our staple food is staple to us because it suits the climate and the weather and not because it is the only thing that we could afford. Let us remember that with questioning comes logical thinking and scientific reasoning. When 3/4th of the world respects India today, it is not because India is changing rapidly. Its because India has still managed to retain its vibrant culture even though so many centuries have gone past. Unlike what we do always we should not let our cultures go extinct and then try to revive it back. Rather let us set out on a path where we pay equal importance to all cultures and yet forget none.

Paritosh Sharma, leading entrepreneur of his third venture UnCV (first was social media B2B startup, which failed and ‘hashtaag’ from which he withdraws). An author of “lifetime” book: Patanjalize your brand. Consultant to giant startups like Jabong, Paytm etc. One who believes that female charm works for him (his mother, wife, and daughter). His life mantra is quite simple: “Keep giving”, not for the sake of getting back but for the sake of giving. In short, he is a personality whom one can always look for.

“When every company (FMCG) was interested in marketing their product, Patanjali invested in infrastructure”: Paritosh Sharma said. He realized that this story needs to be captured and thus, an entrepreneur transformed himself to an author. This is despite the fact that Patanjali today doesn’t need any recognition as it has become a “source” of happiness, health, and purity.

In his book, he sums up the success of a ‘Desi’ 10,000 crore business which is led by a yoga guru, whose qualification is not more than 10th standard along with a spiritual friend, Baba Ramdev and Acharya BalKrishan (MD of Patanjali). He went on a visit to Patanjali center at Haridwar and describes how Patanjali is rearing the highest breed of cows at the largest Yog Bhawan in the world.
Paritosh adopted hard work, honest intent, unfailing grit and determination from Patanjali to name a few.


Patanjali is such a company which uses “Made in Bharat” over “Made in India”. The reason as stated by the author is that “language” is the source of evolution and it works as a strategy for Patanjali.

However, at the same time, above stuff may inspire or encourage you, there is a need to put some light on the struggles of both Paritosh Sharma and Patanjali because a successful story without struggle is like a body without the heart! He failed twice not because of earning less money from his venture but not providing the satisfactory services to customers, not fulfilling the purpose of establishing that venture.
This failure moved him so much that now, he has the vision to inspire at least 100 million people so that they can work beyond their comfort zones.

Both Paritosh Sharma and Patanjali are real life examples for all of us to show that go for a goal, target it, put the best in it and the world will acknowledge it.

Lalit Gotham, sole founder of Handscart, a social startup working towards uplifting the status of artisans living across the globe. A typical Indian guy who calls himself an “accidental entrepreneur”, done his B. Pharma and MBA in finance. Switched to 6 different jobs in the span of 1.5 years in the search of a something that suits his personality and then, landed in business.

Handscart is providing a 360-degree development to artisans, society. However, the thing that made Handscart different is that it is the sole startup in India to acquire three European Visas (France, Italy and Spain).

What made Handscart different from all?

Well, Handsacrt provides a solution to artisans problem ranging from lack of education, exploitation from different NGOs, association groups. It provides knowledge via workshops, making one of the artisans as the coordinator who is obligated to teach and represent artisans at different platforms. Skill development is what the main motto of the startup. Along with, artisans are able to earn the good sum of money from this venture.

In order to understand the variety of goods that are listed on the site, it would be enough to say that orphanage children, refugees from across the globe are contributing and above all, their work is getting international recognition. Start up being environment-friendly in nature has recycled products too.acquiring them was a tedious job for Lalit Gotham because his own co-founder left the competition in between. Then, he got it out of 800 new startups across the globe, which added to the competition level. These visas will enable Lalit and his startup to establish his business freely and an opportunity to work with the respective nation’s government.

Acquiring the start-up was a tedious job for Lalit Gotham because his own co-founder left the competition in between. Then, he got it out of 800 new startups across the globe, which added to the competition level. These visas will enable Lalit and his startup to establish his business freely and an opportunity to work with the respective nation’s government.

This is all despite the fact that Lalit Gotham has faced many challenges while establishing his business. Because his target audience- artisans are exploited by different communities so in order to develop that faith was a difficult task. Then, infrastructure is not appropriate, the poor communication network in rural India adds up to his problems. Maintaining a supply chain management effectively was a difficult task too.

This all never stops Lalit to do something which he loves, he is living his dream of exploring different cultures and making money too. He is truly an inspiration for all the youth across the globe.
