He also quoted the report of ASSOCHAM stating that the companies are not getting worthy candidates. He implored the students to go for start-ups. In USA, roughly 70 % of the jobs come from start-ups. Indians need to follow suit. He described about a woman who started a nail paint business some years ago and is now earning in millions.

He along with CS Akansha Jaggi responded to the queries of the students. It was a very informative and educative session.
The program culminated with ‘Votes Of Thanks’ delivered by Mr. Shivendra Singh Choudhary. The significant contribution made by Dr. Sunil Shukla, Ms. Anu Sayal, Mr. Shivendra Choudary, Ms.Vijay Lakshami and Mr. Ravindra Singh Rawat towards the success of the function deserves a special mention.
