Jai Xavier Prabhu David

"India needs a million entrepreneurs and more. But what's stopping us? Perhaps it is because we are a country of great followers, not leaders. And to add to our problems, there is this fatalistic attitude inherent in all of us, born out of misinterpretation of the concept of destiny to constrain ourselves to a box. The way out is to evangelise and encourage entrepreneurship at the grassroot level and across categories. Today, we only celebrate the mighty entrepreneurs. By nature, it is difficult to get too many of them. And by logic, it is impossible. We need to realise that an entrepreneur with 25 people in a place like Kurnool or Thalassery is equally important. These guys address the key problems that India faces today, like urban migration and unemployment."
