  4. Namaste, I am fortunate that I was associated with this project for a very long time indirectly. Lot many products have been developed, new ideas emerged, and many go failed also but this is how we develop a social enterprise. It is a lesson to learn for other development partners and government bodies also that how government and private can work together for the welfare of the community. One unsung hero is missing from this PPT presentation and discussion and his Name is Vinit Prabhakar. He was the cornerstone for this unit from 2013-2022 without whom it could not grow the way we see this unit today. All the Best to the team, hope better judgment prevails during final selection.
