The pandemic has changed the way the world is functioning. While some are bemoaning the change that the pandemic has imposed upon humans, others are making use of the opportunity to set up mostly home-based micro-businesses. Of course, while some are doing it for fun, some for money, and some to satiate the entrepreneur in them, one thing is for sure. There is a boom in the number of people, especially from the IT sector taking up a business. One such person happens to be Sarvani. She started her micro-business, The Powder Legacy, during the pandemic.
Well, it all began when she was working from home. During the time, she decided to make Sunni Pindi, a powder used in many Telugu households, to take a bath. While it was a norm till a couple of decades back, nowadays everyone prefers soaps.
And one fine day, she happened to make a large quantity of the organic powder. For the heck of it, she posted on Instagram, and she got immediate orders. Sarvani says she was surprised by the response, and she, along with her husband Dikshit, decided to start their own venture.
Initially, Sarvani was giving the powder in ziplock bags. Then she started making organic bath powders and got the mixes made at her neighborhood mill. However, what sets Sarvani apart is that she and her husband are both full-time corporate employees. But their belief in the organic powders and their enthusiasm to carry forward the legacy of such harmless and soothing powders made her start her micro business. She says she goes by her grandmother’s words – if something is not good to eat, then do not put it on the skin.
