Recently, he founded a start-up called GreenBull and is working towards it. In conversation with Ila Dhond, Content Editor at What according to you is a future of Goa?

Shubham: Goa has been exponentially rising. I see a bright future for my state. Having said that, it is only possible when talented people come out and pursue something they actually like. I have seen talented people going shady way and not making use of their potential. What were the difficulties you faced during Covid?

Shubham: I do not think it was a difficult period for me. I had a lot of productive time for myself. I also got fired from two jobs which was a blessing in disguise. Resources were provided by MLA. Everything was smooth for me. Do you think India is heading in the right direction?

Shubham: I think, India is trying its best to be on a good path considering the current situation. However, it is a democratic country and it is tough for it to do its best as people tend to choose power over talent. What according to you, is hindering the growth of India?

Shubham: The ecosystem of how the country is built is quite unsatisfying. There are many intellectuals here but they either do not get a chance to showcase their knowledge or if they at all do get a chance, they are put under pressure by power seeking entities and are prevented from working on their full potential. How do you think Goa CM is currently handling the situation?

Shubham: As far as I have understood, he does not know what he is doing. He must re-consider his opinions before making public statements. I am disappointed with the Mhadei River case. Why according to you, people are moving out of India?

Shubham: There are many opportunities in India but there are more in abroad. Even I had a chance to move abroad. But I did not. I wanted to do something for my country. I stayed loyal to it. People like me exist who want to contribute in its growth.
