Tell us more about yourself and what you do. :
I run a company by the name of Dizuna Communications Pvt Ltd. Our main focus is supporting and providing technology for public initiatives in India.
What was the motivation behind starting Dizuna?
I love working and always dreamt about running my own company. It took me 3 years to understand and find my calling. There were two things which always attracted me: Governance and being an Entrepreneur. That's how Dizuna came to life.
Do you think e-governance can help in better governance? What is the future of e-governance in India?
Absolutely. Technology makes life easy and a Government which supports an entire nation cannot live without bringing in better technology. There is no future but only present. We need to develop such projects which makes our Government so innovative and modern that it encompasses all the issues needed to be addressed to make us a better Nation. Infact, this year's budget has really been a very positive step towards this effect.
A message to all SHEROES out there.
I think it is important to realize the immense potential that we women have. Once we do, we can be the best that the world has ever seen. Let's nurture our powers and keep improving with time.
