The Sustainable

India, the land of opportunities, has witnessed an exponential growth in the number of startups from young brilliant minds adding a good boost to the economy while fulfilling the gap for job vacancies. India ranks third worldwide for the highest number of unicorn companies. From a lot of startups, one that we should look out for this year is an Initiative of Creative Ideas, ‘The Sustainable’ which envisions to promote sustainable living in India.

This unique initiative is on a mission is to spread awareness about sustainable living. In an exchange with The Talented Indian, Jinal Ajmera & Vivek Ajmera, the co-founders of The Sustainable stated, “Let’s face it, we all need to do a lot more for the environment to make it more sustainable and quite frankly, it doesn’t require a lot of effort. A few small changes that we make in our day to day lives will go a long way in providing a sustainable environment for future generations. So, let’s join hands together to build a greener planet and build a sustainable lifestyle for the next billion users, one product at a time,”

Thesustainable.in is a green marketplace allowing access to fifty plus eco-friendly products from India to around two hundred countries. Some of their mean-green product is Organic Dates, an organic calendar with seeds in it and which once planted can grow into a beautiful tomato tree; Organic Pencils wrapped with seed paper on the other end, which can be planted once the pencil shrinks and the national flag made out of seed paper. For the special occasion to celebrate the 71st year of Republic India, they have created tri-coloured pencils.

“Although the startup ecosystem has been prevalent in the country for a while now, not many have managed to make some serious change in our environment. Sustainable living is definitely the way forward to a better and greener future and the more aware we are of or surroundings, the better it will be for future generations. I believe if you keep on innovating and give your 100% into it, the challenges seem very meager. It’s the simplest and smallest things that make the most impact and that’s what makes this challenge exciting,” Jinal says.

The team at Sustainable openly invites one and all to join them in spreading awareness about sustainable living for a better and cleaner future.

The Inspiring Journey Of Feeding India’s Ankit Kawatra

Published

on

Ankit Kawatra

Globally, hunger kills more people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined together. Poor nutrition causes the death of nearly 31 lakh children every year. Worldwide, 16.1 crore children suffer from hunger and malnourishment. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, about 79.5 crore people, one in nine of the global population, suffer from chronic undernourishment. These are some facts which show the dark side of life.

Hunger is one of the biggest killers in the world. But what makes the situation worse is that around 40 percent of all food produced in the world is wasted. So the actual problem is not the lack of food but its wastage and inefficient distribution mechanism.

To change this grim picture, Ankit Kawatra along with his friend Srishti Jain started a great initiative in 2014. In a life-altering experience at a wedding, Ankit realised the real problem, when he saw food for almost 10,000 people being wasted. Without any delay, he left his corporate job and started Feeding India. With five volunteers initially, he started collecting excess food from restaurants, hostels, weddings, parties, canteens, etc. and donated it to people in need. Over the years, Feeding India has grown over 20000 plus Hunger Heroes in around 80 cities across India.

Recognised globally for his initiative, Ankit has been conferred with Queens Young Leader, Forbes 30 Under 30, United Nations Young Leader and National Youth Awards. It is the leadership of such incredibly talented and amazing people like Ankit that will lead India into a better future.

Acquired by Zomato, now Feeding India can create a bigger impact in ending hunger and food wastage in India and around the globe. Recollecting his journey in a TEDx talk, Ankit inspires us to contribute to resolving some of the major global challenges. Every minor step in the right direction will aggregate towards greater impacts.

An Inspiring Story Of A Young Entrepreneur: Swati Jain

As a young entrepreneur, Swati Jain is setting her own rules of success and inspiring others to do the same.

Published

on

Swati Jain

Anne Sweeney, the Co-Chair of Disney Media Networks once said, “Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.” Swati Jain, a young entrepreneur from Bhilwara, is redefining and achieving her own rules of success.

Born and brought up in Bhilwara, Rajasthan, Swati graduated in B.COM (Hons.) from the prestigious Shri Ram College of Commerce in 2015, post which she worked with A.T. Kearney, a leading global management consulting firm for around three years. Despite having a successful corporate life, she felt that something was still missing. On her journey to find her passion she turned to her roots.

As a young girl in the Textile city of Bhilwara, she grew up in a family of businessmen. So naturally, her perception and outlook towards work life were shaped as a result of those factors. Along with it, the simple moments of clarifying the doubts of her friends in school to the volunteering experience with Pratham to teach young kids at Balwadi in Mumbai, made her realize the true calling of her life. Over the years, through her keen observation, she noticed that the process of learning through games and activities leads to greater involvement and higher learning outcomes in children. With this invaluable lesson at hand, she started her entrepreneurial venture Shikshanad.

Aiming to make learning fun, Shikshanad converts important academic and general knowledge based lessons into educational fun games, along with building social intelligence. Her journey as an entrepreneur so far has taught her that there are a lot of uncertainties, doubts and insecurities in the initial days. In those moments of tough times, her family became her support system.

Her message to every dreamer or passionate person is “to find a way to pursue it because regrets can be really haunting, much more than the tough days in pursuit of passion!” But she also cautions the youth to take calculated risk in life. Along with pursuing a passion, one should have a plan to fulfill the basic needs.

She concludes by saying that, “A side income or safety net and a bag full of courage, patience and perseverance are all that one needs to beat the challenges in pursuit of one’s passion.”

The Talented Indian Community extends best wishes to her for a successful, impactful and fulfilling career ahead.

Taameer : An Initiative by Rubhen D’sa, A Social Entrepreneur

Published

on

Taameer, Initiative, Rubhen D’sa, Social Entrepreneur

Rubhen IIT Delhi

Rubhen D’sa appreciates art- writing and poetry in particular. He loves music, plays guitar and spends his free time listening, singing and composing music. He loves dogs, walking around Delhi observing, meeting, talking to strangers and trying new food joints. He has recently developed a taste for travelling and someday wishes to have a lifestyle, where he travels and writes. He is a nineteen years old English language writer from New Delhi. He is pursuing his graduation from Delhi College of Arts & Commerce and is passionate to become an author in the near future.

He was excellent in academics till the eighth grade. Then after, he decided to give academics a break and focus more on co-curricular activities. His grades in the mark sheet deteriorated with every passing term and the certificates he won in competitions kept piling up. “That’s gloomy, dark and depressing”, remarked his school teacher on the first poem he showed to her. It was seven pages, fourteen stanzas long poem. She gifted him the book later that month, ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’, a fable written by Richard Bach. She wanted him to read it and hoped that he would learn from it and do well in his life.

Rubhen performing in cafe

 

Rubhen is a state and national level award winner in creative writing. He was also seen reciting poems on Doordarshan- Indian television channel. He represented his college among the top 25 colleges all over India at the ‘National Youth Poetry Slam’, organized this year at Bengaluru.

He is always financially independent, as he started earning at a very young age by giving his hands on all kinds of odd jobs such as giving guitar and academic tuitions, writing for agencies, composing jingles, performing music at cafes. He not only earned for his survival but also for savings and investments. He likes money and thinks that everyone should do what they love to do and earn enough money to fulfill their needs in the world. He believes in the fact that being rich is not bad so long as the means adopted for it is right in all respect.

Rubhen with kids

Rubhen is also the founder of an art-social enterprise Taameer. Among the old and newly founded art groups in Delhi, Taameer stands as a lone wolf for its discrete core vision. It was founded on 21st July, 2016. Taameer is a community of artists. The group has many young, talented singers, musicians, painters, dancers, writers, poets and even college professors. Rubhen visited many poetry slam events and art meets and found that all of them are revolving around the same cultivated ideas of glamour, glitz and commercialization. He could never connected himself to them. They gave him an impression of ‘art for the elites’. A few spoke to him, a few listened to him and he noticed that there was a sense of art in the air but only confined to the rooms. These organisations lacked what is being imbibed in the core of Taameer- a vision to transform the society through the art.”

Rubhen Taameer event

 

With four successful events in Delhi, Taameer, the group of highly passionate artivists, as they call themselves, is thriving across various platforms. This group of artists has organised art events and meets at Friendicoes- the famous animal shelter home, an old age home in Karkardooma and recently organised a fun event for more than fifty underprivileged students near Tihar Jail. “If science can help us find life on the Mars, art can help us continue life on the Earth.”, proudly says Rubhen D’sa.

The best part of Taameer is that the majority of its members are students, who are still pursuing their graduation. Taameer is run purely by the passion for art and social service. Taameer runs a Facebook page with original writings. Taameer also has foreign language professors from the University of Delhi and Amity University as its members. Taameer wishes to reach out to every artist in the country, as he says with a sparkle in his eyes, “We wish to continue to grow as a family of artivists. Art heals what science can’t cure.” says Rubhen.
