What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
My life events and achievements are my inspiration. I born in a middle-class family and struggled very much to get money for my needs when I was a child. I love computer very much and have the keenness to learn computer & IT related things.
At the age of 11 my father bought a second-hand computer for me because of my daily request for the same. Since it was a secondhand computer I met many problems while using it. During that time, I tried to repair it myself and gradually studied some basic computer hardware.
My school also helped me learned a lot about computer and other IT related things. I was student IT coordinator there. I participated in the Webpage designing competition when I was in 8th standard, and that turned out to be the turning point in my life. I couldn’t make it to beyond the sub-district level, but that only inspired me to learn more about web designing and other technical stuff.
What is your life mantra?
‘You learn more from failure than from success. Don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character’
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
During my higher secondary studies, I didn’t get much time for blogging. My parents forced me to concentrate more on studies since they have great hopes on me. Also, there was no proper internet connection available. I was using 2g internet data connection at that time. These all delayed my works. But ultimately now I am managing more than 4 blogs at a time.
How did you overcome those challenges?
I didn’t do anything extraordinary. I just continued doing my works and learning. If something helped me in overcoming above challenges, it is my Mother and the web world.
