I used to think that in the era of money-making, anyone hardly gives a thought to education until I met Nakul, the CEO of Techamania, a startup that aims at providing education to all and “Make literate INDIA” a dream come true.
In a conversation with Nakul:
“The Difference between ‘Who you are & What you want to be’ is What You Do”
How did it all start? How did you get the idea for this?
I have travelled all the way from Bareilly, UP to Chennai around 2700 Km to study Nanotechnology and do something which would give me happiness. I was travelling in Chennai local during my 3rd year of college, found one underprivileged family where father was teaching 3-year-old son ABCD by overwriting on the newspaper. After my graduation, I had the chance to join PhD at Malaysian University but no financial support. So I came up with a plan to use technology in order to provide quality education at Rs 200 per month.

You have given so many talks in different institutions. What do you keep in mind while delivering a talk and how do you analyze your content to talk to people?
The prime goal of any talk is to add “VALUE”, the secondary goal is to inspire at least a few, who could be change makers of tomorrow.
