Imagine a world where there is no discrimination based on caste, creed, religion and other factors. Imagine a world where we are judged by our merit and nothing else. This is the vision that drives Shri. Bharatiya and inspires him to give his 100% to his job.

Shri. Bharatiya believes that the most ground-breaking ideas are those that stem from questions. If we ask any human being whether he/she/they have ever faced any kind of discrimination in his/her/their life, the answer will be affirmative. This question and this answer are the seeds behind his vision.
Shri. Mohit Bharatiya calls himself a “realistic dreamer”. Putting a full-stop to discrimination is not an easy task as rigid mindsets are hard to change.
