Harsimran Singh Kalra, co-owner of ‘Smart Study’ takes us through his business journey-
“Many times I used to wonder why whatever is coming into our lives, hadn’t come a long time back!”, he exclaims, adding, “Looking into various aspects- be it the mammoth flyovers, the stem cells or the laser surgeries, he realized that every aspect takes it course, but at first, it needs to be sown, and after leveraging its gestation period, finally comes its shape and features. So is the period of education, which evolves us after every year’s hard work”.
Harsimran discloses, “Years of utter faith in ‘karma’ and continuous efforts turned out to be a victorious path for our venture”.
He further reflects that the sole reason of their growth had been their precise understanding of their weak-links and the hard work poured in cementing them to transform into their strengths. He credits their firm faith and assiduous efforts into the endeavors which has helped them in emerging as a survivor out of many competitors.
He owes gratitude to his entire family who has always stood by him through thick & thin, and recalls his sleepless working nights which paved a way to reach the epitome of his career. He admires himself for competently fulfilling his responsibilities at every point of time and iterates his challenges about managing ‘family-work life’ balance, which realizes him of the fact that working full time has always made him fall short of time for his family

He put in all of his sources and efforts to establish ’Smart Study’ – an Educational Consultancy Institute to benefit the students.
