Entrepreneurship as a topic of discussion is one of my personal favourites. I'm a third-generation entrepreneur in my family, and back when I had just completed my engineering and management studies, I was posed with a question from my family. Would I join one of my father's businesses, or should I do something of my own? It was an easy question because I always had the urge to do my own thing. This was during the early days of the mobile revolution in India, and I knew we had great potential for this industry to grow.

I partnered with Telstra from Australia and launched India's first mobile network in 1995. This strategic partnership was the start of my entrepreneurial journey, and it remains one of my fondest memories. It was such an honour to know that the first mobile call in India was made on our network and to have seen India grow from then to now; being one of the largest data markets in the world, it has been nothing short of phenomenal. From then to now, a lot has changed. As a businessman and an entrepreneur, I changed strategies several times depending on the market scenario and the dynamic demands of the customers. Therefore, today, seeing new entrepreneurs enter the market fills me with pride. While one could say the growth of Indian entrepreneurship is slow, it is steadily changing, and the Indian mindset is accepting the role of entrepreneurship in the country's overall development. The government is doing its best to promote entrepreneurship to boost economic growth and increase employment opportunities. While watching Shark Tank, I had a wonderful and happy realization when I noticed that Indians are genuinely creative, and all they need is a little nudge in the right direction. Entrepreneurship is not so much about the idea, as it is about the courage to take that leap of faith and pursue the dream. I believe the times are changing for the better, and soon enough, we will see a wave of next-gen entrepreneurs who are fearless in their pursuit of success.
