Shark Tank India witnessed its fair share of inspiring contestants, who did not let their entrepreneurship die and braved against the odds. But very few might have earned themselves a spot amongst viewers' hearts as 10-year-old Prathamesh Sinha has. The visually-impaired student wowed judges with his wonderful demonstration of Thinkerbell Labs’ braille device, Annie. His charming behaviour also made him a favourite among the sharks as well as viewers, and the young man recently shared what are his aspirations in life.
On the Superstar Singer stage, Prathamesh talked about how his dream in life was to become an IAS officer. He talked about how he used to tell his mother that he wanted to become a soldier, be it in the air force, army or the navy. He recalled how his mother had told him that a job in uniform would not be possible for children like him.
But not one to be disheartened, Prathamesh decided to bring improvements in the nation’s infrastructure instead, and serve the nation that way.

On Shark Tank India, Prathamesh had accompanied the founders of Thinkerbell Labs to demonstrate a self-learning braille device, called Annie. He had established a special rapport with boAt co-founder and MD, Aman Gupta, whom he considers one of his favourites. The friendship between the two had continued even after Shark Tank with the businessman even sending Prathamesh a special gift on his birthday. And that's not all, Prathamesh was also awarded a ‘special scholarship’ by Gupta’s company recently. He was also made a boAt CEO for a whole day.
Shark Tank India’s first season can be streamed on SonyLIV and interested entrepreneurs can register themselves for the new season of the business reality show.
