45764576a1

Libmyth, a knowledge sharing platform was started in late 2013. Libmyth‘s aim is to bridge the gap between academics and knowledge!

They aim to elegantly spread awareness among people the science behind everything. They dream of educating people about the miracles of science, the beauty of nature and the bliss in existence!

Techaloo got an opportunity to have a chit-chat with Sanketh, founder @ Libmyth. Let’s see what he wants to share with us?

Techaloo : When did you start your journey?
Sanketh : We started it in the end of 2013. But I can say that the seeds were sown right from my school days, I always wanted to give back to the society which has given me so much. The urge to reach out to people helped us start our initiative.

Techaloo : What motivated you to join the entrepreneurship community?
Sanketh : It can be attributed to many reasons. The urge to do something innovative and solving a big problem was there right from my school days. It is such a simple concept that you try something new and with that you change the world. In the process of solving the education/learning difficulties and to create joyful learning to bridge the gap between academics and knowledge, I entered into the entrepreneurship community.

Techaloo : How did this Idea come to your mind?
Sanketh : The reason why I started Libmyth was because whenever I looked at the study materials/handouts for preparing for extra-curricular activities and other competitions it was difficult to search information in millions of books. And also it was difficult to sort it as important stuff. So, we thought of creating something which would be a solution to all science related problems! And here we are with libmyth!

“You only live once! And if you don’t take the chances and risk it when you have an opportunity, you may regret it for the rest of your life “

Techaloo : Why the name “Libmyth”?
Sanketh : When I asked one of MY friend for a name. She suddenly said, “Libmyth”. She came up with this name which says MY Zodiac sign according to English and Indian Astrology. We decided to have this name because it is attractive and abstract.

Techaloo : What was your vision/mission while starting “Libmyth”?
Sanketh : We aim to bridge the gap between academics and knowledge!

We aim to elegantly spread awareness among people the science behind everything. We dream of educating people about the miracles of science, the beauty of nature and the bliss in existence!
We need the common man to realize that Science is not rocket science, but something beautiful and interesting.

We urge you to take time and discover the pleasure of learning and the Joy in Science.
From pin to pen, we are dependent on Science. So, let’s enjoy science and its simplicity!

Techaloo : Who is your inspiration?
Sanketh : Parents, few of MY teachers and some of MY friends are mainly an inspiration for ME. I like bits and pieces from different people.
To start with during school we were inspired by the work of great scientists like Sir. M Vishweshwaraiah, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Einstein etc. During our college days as we came to know about the stories of companies like Microsoft & Infosys, it felt magical.
I even draw inspiration from Bhagat Sing, Azad, and Dr.APJ Abdul kalam

Techaloo : What hurdles did you face while starting?
Sanketh : We too had problems like how other startups have. Funds were the main problem and is also a problem now.

Techaloo : Tell us something more about Libmyth?
Sanketh : We dream of making science accessible to the layman. Not merely science, but everything informative and worth your time!
We plan to release our own magazines very soon and also certain tests where you can test your GK and many other interesting stuff! (And also an android app). We try everything we can to shape the future of Learning and making it a joyful experience.

Techaloo : Tell us something about “Shushrooshaa”.
Sanketh : Shushrooshaa is a non-profit organization founded by a group of youngsters who believe in the power of action and responsibility. We at Shushrooshaa believe in the principle that service to mankind is service to God. We are a group of young people who have joined hands to target problems which have been hindering the progress of our Country. We plan to tackle issues which have deep roots in our country curbing our developmental issues such as poverty, child labor, child and women abuse, malnutrition, illiteracy, and many more.

With this initiative, we aspire to reach out to people in distress and renew their belief and strength. We hope that our small acts of kindness and love will brighten someone’s tomorrow.

Techaloo : What are the topics you are focused on?
Sanketh : We believe in Multi-disciplinary approach. Be it Science, Arts, Technology, History or Environment, you get everything at one place with Libmyth.

Techaloo : How are you managing the content?
Sanketh : Presently, all the content is managed by our little team of three.

Techaloo : Have you got any kind of funding? Or are you planning for the same?
Sanketh : We are now sustained by our own money. Yes, we have a plan of approaching for funding/investing.

Techaloo : How is the response till now?
Sanketh : Since the time of our launch. The response is good and decent.

Techaloo : What are your plans for next 3 years?
Sanketh : We have so many plans lined up. Keep checking this space again for more developments.

Techaloo : What do you think about techaloo.com?
Sanketh : TechAloo is a good initiative to foster entrepreneurship among the young generation and even at college levels.

I like to thank many people who have helped ME to achieve and to stand where I am today. Firstly, I thank MY Parents for everything they have given ME. I thank some of MY teachers who really have helped ME till now. I thank MY close friends who have not let ME down in any situations. I even thank MY friend who has influenced ME a lot, and tried to make ME better especially mentally strong. I gladly thank MY other friend who stood beside ME always and was a sinkhole to drain away all MY sadness/tension etc. How can I forget you mates, I really thank Mayukh Saha for having a similar thought and to join hands with ME, Amulya D, for being the content creator and Prem L for being with us.

So we are more thankful to Techaloo.com for giving us this platform to reach out to more and more people.
