Though these students had good knowledge & thinking power, lack of good support and proper guidance became a hurdle for them to perform well in academics.
What is the idea behind EasyShiksha?
India is growing very fast in all sectors right now but still in education sector we have two big challenges –
1. Social Barriers – From my childhood and till now, I don’t see a big difference in educating a girl child. In rural parts of India, parents still hesitate to send a girl alone to a city for education. Be it a school, college or university.
2. Economical Barriers –Approx. 60% of talented students are facing problems due to insufficient funds for Higher education at good institutes.
To overcome these hurdles I have started EasyShikska.com.

Career helper program tells you what type of occupation you should opt for which matches your interests, value and aspirations. It consists of mainly 4 types of tests which are IQ test, Basic test, Advance test and Psychometric test.
It tells the students about their strength and weakness on which they need to work on. Career guidance from the experts is also available where you can ask your queries. Thousands of students have benefitted from career help program.
Career helper is an attempt to map the competencies (The skills, knowledge, attitudes) of an individual to the desired/ required competencies. EasyShiksha has robot platform.

Even after a lot of optimism, online learning has failed to become a huge force till now. What do you think have been the reasons and how do you see the trend changing?
There are thousands of enrolments for the free courses and hardly 5 to 7 percent people are bothered to complete the registration. When it comes to volunteer participation people do not show their best in achieving that. In case of online learning, it can be successful if you are able to access it properly. Lack of access can be due to logical or economic reasons. This is a major issue in rural or where there are low socio- economic conditions. There should be minimum literacy in students and teachers to handle the computers and work successfully.
Some of the subjects like public learning and hygienic issues need practical hands on and students need regular motivation to excel in these subjects. Trend is changing from traditional learning to online learning. But in my point of view there should be a blend of both in learning.
What is your advice to the aspiring entrepreneurs?
First piece of advice is to challenge yourself daily so that you get the biggest motivation to do challenging things. Work only in which you truly believe in and can give your best. We do not know the result of the inputs which we put in to do any work, so take risks in order to succeed even if you face failures. Next piece of advice is always have a clear vision in your mind and make best of the effort to achieve the objectives which you want to achieve.
