Our newspapers and TV channels are filled with coverage which incites us not to trust anybody, feel we are in continuous danger and that the world is ending on the coming weekend. We fill our mornings with such horrific news. Though they are true, is it fair for your mind to consume such negativity first thing in the morning?
We pay an enormous amount of attention on what kind of food are we eating so as to provide the best things to our organs, then why ignore our brain. The continuous negative news affects in more ways than we know, and this is why this young entrepreneur from Bhopal started a media platform, delivery only positive news.
Tanishka Patidar and her college senior, Mukesh Pathak started Indian Achievers Story, a web platform for success stories of ordinary people around us. Tanishka was in the first year of college and Mukesh had just graduated.
“How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world? “- Anne Frank
Both enthusiasts are from Bhopal, M.P., where Mukesh handled the technical duties, Tanishka got her hands-on content creation. Indian Achievers Story has published stories of people who have done something very remarkable as per their potential and the place they belong to.
Some examples are – a woman being the first female auto-driver from Bhopal, earning to support her family after her husband left her or a 60-yo man feeding 200 people daily by earning from his small tea and snack stall.
Tanishka wanted to bring out the good in herself, that’s how she started teaching underprivileged children and then those who had discontinued their studies. Till now, 14 of her students have graduated in Senior Secondary in just 3 years. This count is impressive because the change is brought by one single person, with the help and dedication of all those students. And this journey towards good started when she was 18 years old.
A newspaper dies in 18 hours, in today’s world – the internet keeps things alive and active for a much longer time.
Tanishka and Mukesh plan to keep going with their journey of telling stories. After all, as Anne Frank said: “I don’t think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that remains”.
