#45 If you’re going to create another data point and say you’re changing the world, it’s an escape mechanism.

I think you have to change the composition of the atmosphere. You can't do that with words, you can only do it by actually changing the composition of the atmosphere. And you're going to use scientific principles and implement hardware and chemistry and biology at scale to make it happen. Data doesn't solve problems, data points to problems, hardware solves problems. Without hardware, without science, and without implementation of biology at scale, climate change is not going to be solved. You can put out as many satellites as you want, and you can build as many API's on climate as…

#43 From not knowing how instagram works to now inspiring a community of 255K lead a sustainable lifestyle through it.

When you start your sustainability journey, then don't feel overwhelmed.  You only can judge your sustainability journey and you only can improve by learning from your own mistakes. In my journey, most challenging part was to push myself , mummy used to see the compost and say, what are you doing, there will be flies in house and she saw the bio enzyme, it has a white layer of yeast on bio enzyme and she was like don't do it. When I shared the idea of composting with my husband, he said no, we don't want to do it. Sometimes…

#42 The power of Augmented Reality- Puppets and Animation to communicate climate action.

"The main characteristic of Priya and the challenge that she always overcomes in the comic is overcoming fear. Fear is the one thing that I noticed a lot of survivors have to overcome, in order to get to the point of understanding and healing. And that's what Priya really emphasises and even emphasises, in this comic book about climate change, our fear of this overwhelming problem should not stop us from taking action. " - Ram Devineni "Any kind of oppression or injustice usually involves trying to make the victims feel like they're alone. And so, so many different types…

If you believe in your product, your patience multiplies. You want to stick with it for longer.  So one order, no order, zero order, we had nothing to lose, we had only one thing, that was to just grow.  That was the idea that we cannot go beyond zero order. I mean, we cannot go negative, right? One thing that we were certain of  is the products that we were trying to sell, and we are still selling the products that people need in their life. And now there is a huge gap in terms of brands not talking about…

#39 We have all the ingredients to effect action for climate change more than we had ever before

We are one of the third largest startup ecosystem in the world. But more importantly, in the last four years, or five years, we have risen from a global innovation index of 81, to a position of 46. Now, that's an amazing growth. But I personally believe that we are in India, because of the focus on education that we have had, 1.4 million schools, 10,500 engineering institutions, 39,000 colleges, and 150 million young students entering into the workplace. And we have the need, the need for innovation, and the need for entrepreneurship. So we need climapreneur, climate entrepreneur,  we…

#38 I am willing to push beyond what I think is possible for me.

I started with a podcast where I interviewed my, my dad and stepmom, and you can say, at that very beginning that first journey, well, you're not really doing anything. I mean, you're just talking, you're recording a call with your family. This is very cliche, but you know, a 1000 mile journey starts with a single step. The point is that, I started with that call, and then a second call recording podcast recording, then a third and then eventually, it turned into 80. And in the meantime, we had started this Instagram thing and every single time you…

What are you doing? Why are you not doing the climate? Why are you working on anything else?
