Hrishikesh Raskar, a 25-year-old from Pune, is a vegetable vendor's son. Raskar recently landed a job at Amazon against all odds. The IIT-Roorkee graduate worked 12-14 hours a day to perfect his skills.


At first, he was unable to get a job he wanted right after graduation, and after a few attempts, he joined Scaler Academy, an ed-tech start-up and was building his skill from there.

He would also occasionally take up freelance tech writing and online tutoring since he was aware of his family's financial condition and was doing everything he could to help.

"I brushed up my fundamentals and re-learnt engineering concepts better so that I could truly apply my knowledge to find solutions," said Raskar in a statement given on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day.
