UX is a rather new field and there is a lot of uncertainty, as no one can give a straight answer to what it truly means. For a young person who is interested in this field, a lot of questions go unanswered. Anirudh says, “The Internet is full of unorganized and un-categorized resources but the best part is that if you know the way to dig in, you have pure gold of knowledge and resources in your hands.” But for a person to be successful, especially in terms of entrepreneurship he believes that, they must necessarily have proper discipline, consistency and persistence. When one has these virtues, a lot of gates are opened, that will help one achieve great heights. Having said that he also appreciates how many young entrepreneurs are finding success in India today. The awareness of industry and the adoption and inclusion of principles, values and diversity are at an all-time high. Anirudh maintains that when young entrepreneurs focus on the need of the hour, plan and prioritize their roadmap, network with like minded people across industries, and take risks, formations of successful brands and entrepreneurs are going to be ever increasing.
