Dr. D.Y Patil Institute of Technology, Pimpri, Pune.

LAJA: Tell us something about yourself.

Bhavna: I am an educationist – soon to start my entrepreneurial journey. I am a dreamer and also have the determination and passion to make my dreams a reality. I am first and foremost a homemaker as my family is my topmost priority.

LAJA: Tell us something about your family background and education.

Bhavna: I belong to a very cultured and educated farmer family from a small town Hingoli in the Marathwada region. My father was a merit student, but had to quit his high post job when my grandfather was unwell. He took to taking care of his younger siblings and became an educated farmer. Growing up, I never faced any problem except for lack of awareness of higher education opportunities. I feel that if I was aware of such options, I would have been an IIT pass out.

LAJA: What are the challenges you faced in your entrepreneurial journey?

Bhavna: I am an educationist and dean of a premier education institute at Pune. I am now wanting to start my entrepreneurial journey. The biggest challenge that I am facing is to launch it.

LAJA: What are your most satisfying moments in your career?

Bhavna: Learning to my heart’s desire and achieving a respectable position in my career, being instrumental in getting laurels for my institution – all this has been extremely satisfying for me.

LAJA: What are some of your failures and mistakes and your learnings from them?

Bhavna: The one mistake I always make is to think that everyone else thinks like me – even though it’s for everyone’s benefit – sometimes others don’t think the way I do and I fail to see that.

LAJA: How would you define success?

Bhavna: Self-contentment about anything spells success to me.

LAJA: What advice would you like to give your fellow woman entrepreneurs?

Bhavna: Firstly, have faith in yourself.  Secondly, love everything and everyone unconditionally. Last but not least, life is a team game and not a competition.

LAJA: Do you feel formal education play a role in being successful?

Bhavna: Yes, it is important. But what is more important is that it is appropriately applied.

LAJA: How do you generate new ideas to keep your family happy and grow your business?

Bhavna: I share my work stories with my family and make them an extended part of my work family. Together, when we discuss things, new ideas crop up effortlessly.
