Dhruv’s Journey Describing as below
Dhruv’s Journey – From Learning Abacus to Becoming ” The Cyber Expert “
It was his mother who introduced him to the joys of Abacus, an ancient mathematical technique for doing mathematical calculations. This opened many doors for Dhruv.
He trained diligently and very hard to master Abacus and understand its nitty-gritties; first from his mother and then by himself with his mom’s help. This was a very difficult phase for there were no centers for learning Abacus in Scotland. Without any educational help, it was only the guidance of his mother and his patient dedication and hard work that made him a master of Abacus. He became Dhruv Maheshwari–a 10 year old genius and a human calculator.At that time his mother, Dr. Rashmi Mantri, was working in IT at Glasgow. She found the job very enjoyable since it involved helping young people achieve their dreams and goals; an area which held great interest for her.
He saw a business opportunity in the same and decided to seek his parent’s permission to start his company and introduce others to the advantages of Abacus. He discussed his business plan with his parents who were shocked to see his motivation and drive to teach Abacus. He wanted to create an institution wherein he could teach Abacus, hold Coding and English classes and run Summer and Easter boot camps.
So fascinated were his parents that his mother decided to leave her high-paying, much in demand job to pursue her son’s dream. They started off by opening a small center in Firhill on the western end of Glasgow. Starting off with Abacus classes they garnered about 100 kids within a few months. So successful was their effort that within a year they opened up another center on the southern side of Glasgow followed by one in Edinburgh.
