While he sold newspapers in South Extension area of New Delhi, his father took children’s tutions to support the family.
His family has been through a time full of struggles and various ups-downs. Rajiv shares that there were many days on which they had to sleep empty stomachs because the hard work didn't pay off very well sometimes. Which inspires him to say-
“I don’t want to live for myself, I want to work for poor people. I feel the pain which feel because I have experienced what it’s like!”- said 27 years old Rajiv.
When he grew up, he went to Mumbai searching for some work opportunities, while as a side part he played guitar on the streets and beach which helped him to survive for food and living there. Later he came back to Delhi for his studies at NIIT, GNIT and started with an idea of setting up a business After struggling for a very long period of time good days came into Rajiv’s life when he got his first click in LED appliances.
