Could you please tell us about your professional background and academic achievements?
I am a commerce graduate and I have been an entrepreneur for the past 25 years. Initially, we were into different supplies and later, I moved into exports of garments which I initiated 15 years ago.
When did you start your business?
I started my first business in the year 1993 and that’s the year I formed my company. I became the director of this company while I was still pursuing my graduation.
How well do you believe in Vaastu?
I strongly believe in Vaastu based on my own life experiences for the past 18 years. I have gone through a very bad phase of my life and I have seen things change the day I started following Vaastu. My life experiences have a very strong belief in Vaastu.
What setbacks have you faced in your business before you resorted to Vaastu?
On my business front, I realized that I had my house boring in South West. I didn’t realise it could create problems before consulting for Vaastu. The day I closed the South West boring and moved it to the North East, I saw a positive change in the way events unfolded for me. That’s one thing I would suggest, that the boring shouldn’t be in the South West of the house.

I met Dr. Rao in January this year and found that he is thoroughly acquainted with the subject on Vaastu. What I had known was very basic; however, he has a more holistic view not only for business, but even personal life problems. I feel that he has been quite instrumental in my association with him.
Did you make any changes to your logo as per Vaastu?
I wasn’t very serious about getting my logo as per Vaastu in the beginning; however, it was only when I visited Dr. Rao and interacted with his team members that I developed an understanding of Vaastu importance in Corporate logos. Now, I am pretty confident that the change of logo is inevitable in our business and the experience he has been sharing with us has been phenomenal.
Do you think the upcoming entrepreneurs would believe in Vaastu / your personal views?
It all depends from person to person. Some people are not interested in making changes as per Vaastu and are comfortable with the way things are at their business. So, going and convincing them doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s just the belief that has to come from within. One cannot push anyone to follow this science.
What are your thoughts on GST? How does it affect your business and your consumers?
To me, GST is a welcome step for the industry as a whole. The timing of its introduction was maybe, a bit untimed because the market wasn’t prepared and the implementation initially wasn’t correct. Considering our business, we are exporters and importers. The imports have definitely become more economical. It would be too soon to talk about exports; however, looking at the current scenario, we believe that exports are also going to be beneficial from GST viewpoint.
