“Opportunities lie around us…It is our responsibility to recognize and seize them to make the most out of it for the benefit of society”

Her determination to contribute to the society and create opportunities for many others has been the driving force towards being one of the few Women Entrepreneurs in the Packaging Industry in India.

She belongs to an extremely conservative family with orthodox perceptions and restrictions on higher education for girls and faced several oppositions from her family and society owing to their orthodox beliefs. Nevertheless, her strong determination and aspiration to become a self-dependent person kept her moving and could overcome all odds and constraints to pursue her Masters Degree in Computer Science (MCA). After working in an MNC for couple of years she joined an IT start-up company and contributed immensely in the growth of the start-up. Owing to her active participation, she acquired an in-depth knowledge of structure and processes of a large technology company as well as understanding of chaos and unpredictability of a start-up.

She follows the words of Eleanor Roosevelt “I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.

During the setting up of Jagannath Packaging, the manufacturing unit she had faced several challenges and adverse situations – Financially, Physically, Technically and Operationally. As she belonged to non–technical academic background in the Packaging Industry, her responsibility to learn the technical aspects was increased and has to put in extra efforts to understand the minute technicalities to learn more about the industry. Her passion towards providing the best quality products and services has gained her many accolades as the First Female Founder in the Packaging Industry in the Telangana State with many satisfied customers. With a burning desire and untiring zeal to bring change in the society, she could attain a distinguished Image not only in her society, but also in the Packaging industry at the National and International level.
