Start up for India’s future

PM Narendra Modi’s thinktank came up with the slogan on startups after he met sundar pichai in silicon Valley, and though the future of startups seem bright now, it may not last for long

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” – Swami Vivekanand

When 24-year-old Amit Swami rejected Google’s package of Rs 80 lakh per annum, his parents’ and friends’ first reaction was dismay. But Amit listened to his heart and chose a path of entrepreneurship and launched his own startup. For the students who usually bunk classes, Amit made a scanner that can take real-time attendance. He designed software for class attendance report, which takes a scanned image of students. This software will trace the whereabouts of the student if he is not in the class. So class bunking will be very difficult for those students who just believe in enrollment but not attending classes regularly.
