Meet the Founders
Coming from two different worlds and backgrounds, what grounded them is a resonance with the mantra: To Serve is the Highest Joy.
They have missed the boat on many occasions chasing the obvious materialistic pursuits. And then the Eureka moment had happened! ‘For one to experience pure happiness, they must become consciously aware of each precious moment of Life by first savouring it and then living it authentically to connect with their Soul’s essence.’
Anu believes that, “You can teach people to do anything, but when you teach them to create a mindset to support it, they are gifted with a chance at perseverance, adaptability and resilience!”. Combine that with Deepankar’s belief “Generate enough revenue to be able to sustainably serve society with a meaningful purpose.” and you can perhaps see how the resonance “To Serve is the Highest Joy” is achieved.
What aligns best with them is: When we connect to a higher purpose that is beyond ourselves, that’s when Life truly begins for us.
They say: “For us, after the conception of TSE, Life has truly begun in its purest form.”
