Tushar Shinde

Hi, this is me Tushar. And you have probably got here because of my one of the article or via my resume. It my honour to get a moment to chat with you!
Well, I am not so grown up till now to comment about ‘The Life’, but I can certainly walk you through my journey in couple of seconds. Keeping it short, studied for IIT, got into NIT, explored the possibilities of how exciting a college life can be, felt the feeling of what it is like to awake and grow the dead college club with friends, tried my hands in entrepreneurship (which is still inside me), founded two failed small companies, lost my CGP in between, but didn’t forget to add skills in my sack. That’s pretty much of it!
A last thing I wanted to tell you guys is that a few sheets of paper cannot decide who you can be one day, in fact they have no right to. They matter and you gotta work hard to be good at them, but if you missed that somehow, it’s not a wise man’s decision to sit and cry for it. Life is not unfair to anybody 🙂

Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur
Computer Science and Engineering, (July 2010 - May 2014)

NIT, Nagpur era was what I call the golden pages. Made friends and few crushes! I learnt how to explore here. Few mistakes, many good things happened and so were the weird. That’s a hell lot of memories of those 4 years and still calling me to push my limits throughout the life 😉

On the go workman and CTO (April 2014 - December 2014)

Organolite was the start-up venture started by we, some VNITians, where we used to supply organic vegetables to the people across several areas of Nagpur. It was a layered structure, ‘a relation maintenance layer’ where we use to tie-up with farmers who produce organic vegetables in their farms, ‘storage layer’ where we procure the vegetables, clean and pack them for on-day or next day delivery and third was ‘distribution layer’ where we use to deliver the goods door-to-door to our regular customers as well as sell through the online orders. It went well, but due to our failure on spreading local awareness about organic food, some storing-costing issues and a lack of business experience, we had to shut down this start-up.

That drives me !

I am a short film lover and maker. My third short film, ‘The Last Day’ in which I have acted and directed was selected among top 30 college short films of India for Cinematography at DCS, University of Pune Film Festival.
