Woman on top!
- 03 May 2018
"When I tell people I’m a Marwari and I also do a full-time business, they’re always surprised. ‘How is your family so supportive?’ I had to break so many stereotypes, as a woman and as a Marwari. How is my business related to my caste? In fact, when I shared this idea of designing and manufacturing teaching aids for preschool, my father-in-law was the first person to encourage me. My husband also joined me in the same business after a couple of years of its commencement.
It’s sad that people judge your work based on your background, not in terms of education, but religion, sex, caste, and race. I’m proud to be a woman entrepreneur. In the beginning, I had to face a lot of hardships too, like any other business person. But I didn’t want to give up. I knew this is my dream. I had to be patient and determined towards my goal. And that’s exactly what I advise other aspiring entrepreneurs. Things take time. Be patient and work hard. If I would’ve given up on this idea because it was tough to convince schools to invest in it, I wouldn’t have been here today. I wouldn’t have been able to acquire an MBA degree from Indian School of Business through an initiative program of the institution and Goldman Sachs. The kind of learning, experience, and exposure I gained during that course is unmatchable. If life is ready to give you so much, the least you can do is stay hopeful, patient and persistent."
