Excerpts from an interview with Lakshmipraba U S, the founder and director of Prithvimitra Innovations(OPC) Private Limited, which offers consultancy and advisory services on waste management solutions, composting, and toxin-free living.
When did you start Prithvimitra Innovations(OPC) Private Limited and what was the intention?
In the words of Lakshmipraba U S, the founder and director of Prithvimitra Innovations(OPC) Private Limited–
I started my company in April 2021 formally but my journey of sustainable living started as seed 8 years ago to be a conscious consumer without burdening the earth, water and air.
The intention of starting my Company Prithvimitra is to promote conscious living and enable a low waste and toxin-free world.
I want to bring available and accessible waste management solutions to communities, and build capacity for people to handle their programme on waste management, composting and toxin-free living.
I want to work with schools to create traction on the issues early on with children and enable small businesses to become changemakers. The aim is also for livelihood generation through clean eco-services.
The idea is to convert my passion to purpose to inspire 10 million people across the world.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in starting the company?
The biggest challenge I would say was finance and the belief in success to reach high impact.
What is the biggest mistake you made while starting your company in the initial few years?
At that time clarity was missing on what my core strength areas were. I got the clarity with the help of business mentors, networking groups like HEN, TLC, spiritual mentors and emotional intelligence mentors.
If there was one thing you could advise to a budding woman entrepreneur, what would it be?
Believe in yourself and venture out on the idea that you enjoy and that can add value to you and society.
Learning never stops. Invest your time, money and energy to upgrade yourself as an ongoing process and be in the sangha of mentors and people who can uplift you.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo. She worked on an ad film starring Saif Ali Khan and eventually landed a full time job with designer Vikram Phadnis. Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
