The lockdown closed down everything but at the same time it also opened up one very vital aspect of human life – the human imagination and its creative powers. It gave people the time to revive their dormant talents and indulge in their passion for creativity in any form. This is exactly what Surashri Shirodkar discovered.
Surashri says, “I have always been a creative person and wanted to do things in the art field. This came out as a hobby during the lockdown. I was getting bored and just made a few art pieces which got good reviews from family and friends and that pushed me to being an entrepreneur. I founded The Boho Bazar with a modest investment of only Rs. 5000/- at the age of 30.”
