“The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one else has ever been ” – Albert Einstein

Vivek, the 15-year old boy from Bengaluru, is the youngest Entrepreneur in the Wooden and Carpentry field. He defined his odds to find his true calling. The boy who was called the “Slow” during his days at Montessori is now the supplier of teaching aids for Montessori. His journey has a lot to be noticed and has to be learned by every responsible parent.

Impact of Parents Children

It is usual in India, the largest democracy in the world where schools and parents decide what the child should become or do. Most of the parents want their child to be a doctor or engineer which are the two most popular study courses in India. Parents deeply influence the children at the very young age and are seldom given freedom to choose what they are interested.

Impact of Traditional Educational system

Parents do anything to fulfill their dreams through their children irrespective of what the child dreams to become. Like a fire supported by wind, most of the schools and educational institutes provide additional support to the parents offering that limits the child’s knowledge. They increase the count of unhappy and impaired adults in the workforce.

“Education is not the learning of facts. It’s the training of the mind to think.” –  Albert Einstein

The people behind his success

But Rashmi and NageshBabu, the proud parents of the young entrepreneur stood against the traditional system. Vivek’s dreams couldn’t have seen the light without his parent’s tremendous support. During his days at school, when Vivek was in class 6, he was unable to keep up the pace of his academics. It doesn’t take much time for her parents who realized that the traditional school curriculum is suppressing their son’s talent.


“It doesn’t mean that he had no interest in studying. In fact, he was very receptive to learn via practical examples. But, everything he learned in school started becoming hard for Vivek to cope with after a point” – Rashmi, Vivek’s mother

 They watched their son struggling for academics and getting stressed. They were even tires of receiving complaints during the PTA meetings. His mother,  who is a Montessorian along with her husband Nagesh decided to switch Vivek to a new learning environment and an alternate mode of education.

The Academy that turned his life

After spending an ample time researching, Rashmi came to know about the Aurinko Academy, a progressive learning space that offers a free-learning environment to children.

  • Within a few months, Vivek changed a lot and found himself comfortable in carpentry.
  • Vivek then enrolled in a full-time course in Aurinko.
  • He got freedom from fear and stresses which allowed him to think creatively and find solutions for whatever challenges he faced.
  • His interest, dedication, and hard work impressed none other than AnoopKeni, the Principal of Aurinko Academy.
  • Anoop decided to help Vivek to shape his talent and made him involved in his projects.
  • Anoop and Vivek completely lost their track of time working on projects.

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain as an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso

After learning everything he can from the academy, he started learning through YouTube. Vivek started a facebook page to showcase his articles. He has been supplying the wooden artifacts to India and as well as to foreign customers. He wants to enroll in management studies and wish to inspire other children to pursue their dreams through workshops.
