Struggles & Encouragement
We all can agree that an entrepreneur’s life is full of struggles, but what majorly hit him was, creating a perfect team, not getting funds just getting fake promises. Through these struggles, he has learned how to manage his company without funds and it was quite difficult to overcome but he did it by raising crowdfund.
And, on the other hand, when he came to Varanasi for his studies, he was an outsider who didn’t know much about the city to find the perfect accommodation. Problems like, finding a lodge near to his university at a pocket-friendly price which was hygienic as well, was tough. These problems made him realize that searching for the perfect accommodation is tough. Hence, he took the idea and made it easy for others.
“never run after money or funds, always try to solve the problems in the community and money will end up following you”
He is a businessman, more concerned about his customers rather than money, and being an entrepreneur made him deal with a lot of failures and rejections.

And, yes, currently, he is the Eurasia World Record holder. Finally, India’s book of the world record holder had been awarded to the best deserving person.
