“Mai Shark Tank gaya tha ek braille learning device demonstrate karne. Par jab wapas aaya…boAthead ban gaya”
If by now you didn’t recognize the real superhero behind these lines, allow us to introduce & rekindle your memories.
When Shark Tank India aired, it won the hearts of millions of Indians. But, there was one person who not only made people fall in love with him but also left a mark. Prathamesh Sinha, at the age of 11, has proven to be an inspiration to many. When he graced Shark Tank with his presence, he was very vocal about his love for Aman Gupta & boAt.
So, we did what we do the best– be the cheerleader for every boAthead.
Prathamesh always wanted to spend time with his favourite shark, Aman Gupta. So we at boAt invited him over & added a pinch of our own magic, creating an entire experience for him. Being visually impaired, Prathamesh came to Shark Tank as a demonstrator for a braille device. His innocence & his determination turned us all into his admirers. We decided to be the push he needed in his life to pursue his passion.
Prathamesh dreams of being a motivational speaker. We saw this window as a golden opportunity and helped him seize it. When boAt had its leadership meet, Prathamesh had the stage to himself, being the motivational speaker. And motivated he left us. Telling his story in the most impactful way, he not only touched our hearts but also made us speechless.
It warms our hearts to tell you that Prathemesh is now the newest boAthead (claps & cheers)! Owing to his indomitable spirit, undying passion to #DoWhatFloatsYourboAt and undeniable love for boAt, he showed us what being a true boAthead means.
But this is not all.
We had a fun day at boAt where Prathamesh visited boAt's office in Delhi and spent a whole day chilling with the boAt crew. He was the CEO for a day and when asked by Aman Gupta what he will do being the CEO for a day, he very innocently replied — “mai aapko 2 din ki chutti de dunga!”
Pulling off a classic bade miyan-chote miyan, the bond between his favourite shark & him is undeniable! His presence lit up the whole office as we together played lots of games, jammed on live music, and ate all of his favourite food including pani puri.
His powerful aura, his determination, and his zeal to follow his passion, achieve his goals, and be big is exactly what we at boAt encourage. He strongly stands by the words — #DoWhatFloatsYourboAt & follow your passion, no matter what obstruction comes your way.
We salute his valour & will, and as a surprise, we gifted Prathamesh something.
The boAt crew presented him with a unique scholarship, crafted and curated only for him. This scholarship is in the form of a “Special Needs Instructor” who would enable him to pursue his education at a regular school.
In more ways than one, Prathamesh is one of the true role models of the society.
It is time to buckle up & hustle towards your goals & as we always say, #DoWhatFloatsYourboAt.
See you again, boAthead!
Until then remember,
“If you truly want to achieve something, the whole universe will get behind in making you successful.”
