JanadharIndia: modifying the way of fighting elections
India is the largest liberal democracy in the world divided by caste, class, demography, language, culture, and religion. Before the technological disruption, the election campaigns were managed using old-age methods. The systematic and organizational setup to manage elections was not quite available. Only big national parties took help of such service providers. JanadharIndia came into existence in the year 2014 when the firm’s brain located the requirement of an organized election campaign management service provider in the country.

What piece of advice would you give to youth in the business environment?
I want to suggest these young guns to keep patience. Always remember, Romans didn’t build Rome in a day. It took us four years to become sustainable and profitable.
How do you learn in your life and what is your biggest dream? Who are your peers?
I prefer learning from my mistakes, my clients, my team, and all those people I met on my journey so far. The simple mantra for success is to keep eyes, ears open. One should astutely observe everything happening around oneself. This minute observation definitely helps at times.
What was your journey like to get where you are?
Being an entrepreneur is a daunting task, at times I thought of giving up mainly due to the failures, financial challenges, and peer pressure. But these hurdles only made my resolve strong, I just closed my eyes and kept walking on the path until I achieved something.
Your take on the Indian Entrepreneurial ecosystem
Becoming an entrepreneur has always been tough in India. Due to the bureaucratic mindset, we prefer a secure job over the business. But the recent developments in government policies like regulating the bureaucratic intervention and embracing Neo-liberal reforms, it is now easier to start a sustainable business.
What is the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?
We all have a different mind, different background. So, our thinking develops considering these factors. It is safe to say people and groups are not a monolith in nature. So, making people understand and creating a compulsion is a great challenge.
What is the best thing about being an entrepreneur?
Being an entrepreneur is an art with lots of responsibility. Our nation currently is struggling with the issue of large scale of unemployment. An entrepreneur’s work is to generate employment and establish the business. I think it is a great achievement and contribution to the country in form employment and wealth creation.
