Her name is Rajlakshmi Borthakur. She is a Bengaluru-based entrepreneur, originally from Assam. In the recently concluded Global Entrepreneurship Summit held in Bangalore, Ivanka Trump, in her inaugural address, specifically mentioned three businesswomen who represented the ambition, vision, and determination of every woman entrepreneur in the world. One of them is an Indian and she is none other than Rajlakshmi Borthakur.
Let us know more about this promising entrepreneur of India
She is not an engineer by profession. But her invention is something that only an engineer can think of. She had 18 years of experience in the IT industry and was involved in training, programming and writing. But she left her job to start her own entrepreneurial venture to manufacture a device that can help epilepsy patients and caretakers. She is the Founder and CEO of TerraBlue XT and is known as a social entrepreneur with a difference.
Her invention and entrepreneurial venture
It was not easy for her to start her venture. She had a secured job. But she was also a mother, a mother of an epileptic child, whose epilepsy attacks used to disturb her a lot. At times, her son had those attacks when no one was at home and there was nothing to help her detect the seizure before it was too late. As a mother, her prime concern was her son. Thus, she left her job and started spending time doing research on epilepsy, how can it be controlled, how can it be forewarned and so on.
This led to the invention of TJay Gloves, named after her son Tejas. TJay gloves are not ordinary gloves. These are smart gloves that predict epilepsy seizures before they happen. These are designed in such a way that these can track blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and brainwave activity of the patient and can give a signal as to when the next seizure can take place.

With the recent release of the movie “Tumhari Sulu” by writer-director Suresh Triveni, starring Vidya Balan, the good news is that after a very long time, Bollywood has come up with a movie that gives a positive interpretation of the role of housewives in Indian societies.
Who is Sulu?
The movie revolves around Sulochona or Sulu, a typical Indian housewife, played very convincingly by Vidya Balan. She is a housewife leading a normal family life with her husband and a son. She belongs to a family where her sisters are educated and are bankers, while she herself is a class 12 pass out. She is contented as a housewife but at the same time she wants more and works towards achieving this.
A homemaker with lots of dreams in her eyes…
Tumahi Sulu is a story of a homemaker. Sulu has lots of dreams and aspirations in life. She has many entrepreneurial ideas with her. She manages her household chores efficiently. She stays positive. She is a go-getter. So whenever she gets an opportunity to participate somewhere there is a prize involved, she wholeheartedly participates in it, be it a singing competition or a lemon race or anything else. She gets a sense of satisfaction when she gets a pressure cooker or a TV as the prize. There is something positivity in her role as a housewife.
If given a chance, she wants to work even if she is not educated…
So when she got the offer of a RJ for a late night-show where she needs to respond to her late night listeners’ requests and problems in a very sexy voice, she very willingly accepts the offer. She is not a trained RJ but she did not hesitate to do the job because she has that urge to do something. And yes, she is lucky to have a very supportive boss, played by Neha Dhupia.
A point comes when managing home and work becomes a problem for her…
But as ill-luck would have it, like many working women in the country, she also has to go through the problems of maintaining both home and job. She also gets blamed for neglecting her family. Her family members criticise her. A point comes to her life when she makes up her mind to resign from her RJ job…
But she does not give up…
Her “never to die” approach in life, her entrepreneurial dreams come to her rescue and she sets up her husband’s food delivery business in the RJ office itself. And she herself continues with her job as an RJ.
Isn’t this something which many Indian women relate to?
Yes, after a long time, there is a movie which is an ode to Indian homemakers. There are many housewives who remain happy with their mundane lifestyles but there are many who are just like Sulu. Sulu is not a timid or a shy housewife. She is different…she is jovial, enterprising, enthusiasts, spirited, positive, and competitive. She wants to do something in life for herself and for her family. She is the modern Indian housewife, who remains happy as a housewife but when the need arises to work outside for herself or for her family, she can work outside too, maintaining both home and work.
In the recently concluded Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Hyderabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed a lot on women empowerment and women entrepreneurship in India. Considering women as incarnation of “Maa Shakti”, he said, “We believe women empowerment is crucial to our development”.
But when it comes to statistical data, India still has to go a long way to be a country where all or most of the women are empowered. According to the Sixth Economic Census, out of the 58.5 million entrepreneurs, only 8.05 million are women entrepreneurs, which is just 13.76 percent of the total entrepreneurs in the country. Only 10% of entrepreneurial ventures are launched by women in India, as of now.
What is the reason for such a low growth? What are the problems faced by women entrepreneurs in our country? What steps should the government take for growth in women entrepreneurship?
- Access to capital: The first hurdle is of course access to capital to get the business started. The majority of women entrepreneurs have had to rely on their own self-generated finances and savings. Not all women get the benefit of inherited property. Bank loans and grants are more easily available only when the business becomes established. There are many who have dreams of starting something on their own but their dreams get shattered due to lack of funds to start their business. If the government of India provides easy access to capital and finances for women, it would go a long way in helping women entrepreneurs.
- Mentoring:All women need mentoring when they take the plunge of starting something. This becomes all the more necessary when you belong to a family where there is no member having any previous experience on doing business. With proper guide and support, it becomes easy for a woman to start up a venture. Hence, the GOI should support women entrepreneurs with proper mentorship and organizing awareness programs, workshops, seminars with focus on women entrepreneurship so that women entrepreneurs know that the governmental support is available for mentorship and guidance. While we do see a significant presence of women in the SME sector who have taken up various business initiatives to make some extra money, such enterprises can expand more only when they have access to mentorship. The government should start providing mentors to women entrepreneurs if it really is looking for women empowerment and entrepreneurship in the country in a bigger way.
- Licensing policies: Another effort that the government should take into consideration to encourage women entrepreneurship is to provide a single window for licenses. At present, women face lot of hurdles for registrations and paper works and maintaining documents. Too many licenses are required to start a business for which one has to go to various government bodies. There are many who do not opt for entrepreneurship solely because of the hurdles involved in the registration process. Hence, the government should provide the benefit of single window licensing for women entrepreneurs to start their business.
- Focus on learning: Modi government has already started the “beti padhao, beti bachaocampaign”. Beyond that, the government should also make the facilities for learning and education in all business aspects easily accessible to women across the country. There are not enough opportunities for women to learn about trading or businesses or they are not properly educated to make the ones they run viable. Make learning accessible to all, not only for the young girls but also for women who want to start their own business. It is necessary for Government to provide training to women entrepreneurs to set up their own bank accounts, to make them digitally advanced and to access the internet so as to expand their business on their own.
- Proper safety issues:Another factor that should be taken care of by the government at the outset is the safety of women. Women safety should be taken into priority by the government if the country really needs to be developed in all aspects. A woman when she moves out of her house and enters the world of male dominated society, she needs to assured that she is well-protected in the outside world. Only then more and more women can come forward. As women entrepreneurs, they need to go out for various issues related to their business. But with increase in the number of rapes, assaults, molestation in the country, not all women dare to move out of their homes. We cannot talk of women empowerment when women are not safe. The government needs to ensure safety of women, make them feel safe when they travel and face the world outside with pride and dignity.
