Excellence in academics merely to acquire a good job cannot be the ultimate as it does not necessarily bring joy and happiness in life. It is important to spend time with one’s inner self to analyse and recognise where his or her strength lies. The realisation in those quiet moments and enhancing these strengths will bring certainly bring success joy in life.”
Pendharkar added that every human being is unique and enhancing this uniqueness to convert into a start-up or entrepreneurial venture would be a win-win situation, which would earn one fame, money and joy.
