It is said that some of the greatest experiences in life happen by accident – and our founder Dr. Aniruddha Joshi’s journey is a testimony to that.
The Early Days
Hailing from a family of academicians/scientists, one would think that Aniruddha would naturally be inclined towards research. On the contrary, he was interested in the arts but stumbled into the tech sector instead.
Scepticism to Belief
Like most young people, Aniruddha wasn’t acquainted with the potential of Ayurveda. However, accurate diagnosis and treatment of his father’s ailment by Nadi tadnya Ashok Bhat changed everything. His father’s wish to preserve this ancient wisdom inspired Aniruddha to work on a technology for Nadi Pariksha for his Ph.D. Several experiences with Vaidyaraj Bhat opened his mind to the immense power of this ancient science.
Armed with a Government grant for his work on Nadi Tarangini, the way forward seemed easy. But that was not the case. His PhD. thesis was declined in the first attempt, citing that Ayurveda is not a science. He found no takers for marketing this technology to Ayurvedic practitioners. That’s when he had to face the harsh truth – the lack of faith in Ayurveda in our own country.
Scientist to businessman
Aniruddha realized that you have to be the change you want to see.He had finally found his true calling. Even though he was offered a scientist position at a premier research lab, against everyone’s advice, he started his own venture – ‘Atreya Innovations’.
Aniruddha as a person
Apart from his passion for new product development and algorithms, Aniruddha is an avid traveler, hardcore foodie, movie buff, and sports lover. Despite his busy schedule, he makes it a point to spend quality time with family. His fun-loving and cheerful disposition is in complete contrast to one’s image of a scientist. His unusually calm and balanced temperament instantaneously diffuses stress in any environment.
