Tell us something about your education and family background?
Yes, I was born in Bihar. But I was brought up and educated in Punjab. My family is from Bihar and they shifted in Punjab when my age was around 8 years. I have listened to thousands of stories about motherland from parents. So, I have experience in both Bihari and Punjabi culture. I use to Visit Bihar on regular basis as our routes are very strong and still most of the family members staying in Bihar. I have done B.Tech in Computer Science and have successfully built my career as a Digital Marketing professional after doing several developments and testing related jobs in first phase of my career.
What you think about Bihar is there any difference in Bihar and other states?
Undoubtedly, the Youth of Bihar is rising. They are more educated today; take on new challenges, and settling in modern cities. Education is one of the main differences, along with the professional approach that separates youth from Bihar from other states. Still, I would like to add, the gap is now too narrow, and we might see a change in the next generation. I am associated with business since 2013 so I have met lot of other business owner from my hometown and I have seen lot of passion and zeal to achieve something in their life.
Have you any interesting story about Bihar and you are missing this in Delhi?
Several things actually, my elder brother (Kaushal Jha) and I did study from same college and I have recalled all the memoires during these 4 years of education. Especially we use to do Myntra chanting during evening time ( in Childhood as grandfather use to teach us) and that moment use to be divine. My routes are from Mithilancal and I hardly missed any special moment like Bhoj, Marriages, food of Bihar and culture of bihar (Someone from Mithila can easily recall it). Maithali language, pure air, greenery, water pound and culture are the main things that I miss most living in Delhi.
Tell us in short how did you come into this career?
Since my college days, I wanted to build my own agency and when the opportunity came. I grabbed with both hands. Things started on different note and struggle but things become better with adding values into professional life. Digital Marketing is one of the most promising fields today, with all brick and mortar stores now transforming into online platforms.
Which was the turning point in your life?
In the early phase, I was more inclined towards web development. But changing to digital marketing added more perspective to my profile. And then joining the Digital marketing institute, PIMS was a dream comes true as I always want to teach and train more people.
I always wanted to motivate the next generation and use my skills to drive the next generation of marketing professionals.
