Leaving home at a tender age, how has your journey been to date?
Well, it has been a challenging yet fascinating journey. My father is an entrepreneur himself and I have grown under his magnificent love for innovation and new ideas. I was fascinated by the world of entrepreneurs and knew I could be nowhere else in my life. Leaving home was a difficult call at a small age but today it is all worth it. I started my career with a small online business, Har Aadmi Online. The idea was to bring each small business owner on the internet and use it to magnify their business reach. It was running well for some time but later, I had to shut it and move ahead.
I kept on trying new business ideas and it was a journey of ups and downs. But today I have embarked on some of my dreams but I have a long way to go. I believe there is no limit to dreams and accomplishments. I have my faith in Sai. He will guide me through all my endeavors in life.
“Your will decides the fate of your dreams.”
During my endless endeavors I traveled to various parts of our country, I witnessed a serious shortage of water in many villages. It was disheartening to perceive the lack of basic necessity of life – water. My conscience told me that I had to do something about this. Since then it is my major cause of social work. My aim is to reach out to more and more students and educate them about various methods to save water. A single drop of water saved is worthy of a countless number of lives. Moreover, I wish to help the society for the betterment and we should start with our basics. It is an honor to be working as a social worker and doing my best to reach out to people and help them.
How do you overcome the pressure of being a public figure?
I believe your own expectations pressurize your mind and nobody else. The only way to cope up with pressure is to bring calm and harmony to thoughts. Keep doing what you feel is right and what is best for society. Your will to make things happen will subsidize all kinds of pressures.
It is extremely important to build a calm and composed mindset to bring any plan to execution. The constant fear of failure is the chief of mishaps. If you are willing to fail and learn, all the expectations and pressure will take a back seat.
How do you feel about your work being featured?
It is an absolute pleasure and honor to be acknowledged for my work. I hope this inspires more young people to believe in their dreams and work hard for it. Every small contribution to the welfare of society will go a long way. All the people across our country should understand their duties as citizens and exercise them. Studies assume that the world will run off portable water by 2025. Hence, we need immediate action to conserve water. With the right guidance and education, each citizen will be able to save water in an effective way.
Accomplishing success at a young age, What are your future plans?
I believe working with the right frame of mind in the right direction and success will follow. Plans don’t work well for me. I hope to keep making a difference for entrepreneurs of our country and diligently work for my social cause. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I will work hard at every step of my life.
What do you advise our new entrepreneurs?
Everyone new will always find a new way to do things. I firmly believe that new ideas are the first step to growth. But one must always follow the Guru Mantra of consistency and patience. Both qualities will pave the way to achieve anything one desires. Hence, I advise everyone to be more patient and diligently work towards their goals. Being patient and consistently performing is the key to success.
