This was followed by the journey’s first site visit to Bangaru Irrigation Systems and a tour of their farms and factories, offering insight into the agricultural industry so important here in India. Transitioning to a completely different field, the Prayanees then visited local media network Media Vision and K6, learning how the studio runs and interacting with the chief of the channel and getting the chance to be featured on a live stream.

The group’s 3 days in Hyderabad were jam-packed with sessions, site visits, and inspiration. The first stop was IIT-H and T-Hub, where the Prayanees interacted with budding entrepreneurs and got an opportunity to better understand the highs and lows of building your own business. A tour of the beautiful 5-floor T-Hub and sessions with Prof. Madhavi K. and Prof. Krishna Raju of IIIT-H rounded out a day of entrepreneurial learning.

The second day in Hyderabad marked Republic Day, so the Prayanees connected with their roots by visiting a local Goshala and joined the enthusiastic students of Saraswathi Vidya Mandir school to hoist the nation’s flag. An afternoon of site visits, first to Hyderabad Golf Association with Mr. Dayakar Reddy and Mr. Sanjay Jesrani, second to Nirmaan to learn about Vidya Helpline which offers free educational guidance over the phone, and lastly to Deegit Inc, a global technology and staffing solution company.

The final day in Hyderabad began with a visit to CARE Hospitals, with cardiologist Dr. Krishna Reddy telling the Prayanees how "purpose is the soul of an organization". The final activity in Hyderabad was a visit to Adaequare, an innovative software company where the CEO, Mr. Pavan Peechara, is guiding innovative solutions to common problems such as complex taxation policies and procedures.
