H-1B Visa Rejection: Kunal Bahl's inspiring story should be a lesson for everyone

US President Donald Trump on Monday proclaimed a request to broaden the restriction on H1-B visa until the finish of 2020. Trump's visa limitations have isolated Indian families, yet in addition broke dreams of lakhs of optimistic youth in India. India's tech industry is shaken and numerous accounts of anguish and fate is being shared via web-based networking media. 

As the numbers propose, a staggering number of Indian geeks try to go to the United States to seek after their vocation. The same number of as 1.84 lakh Indians applied for the all out 2.5 lakh H-1B work visas applications for the current budgetary year finishing March 2021. 

How about we return and obtain some motivation from the 35th US President, John F. Kennedy, who broadly said in 1959, "The Chinese utilize two brush strokes to compose the word 'emergency.' One brush stroke represents peril; the other for circumstance. In an emergency, know about the risk - however perceive the chance." Kennedy was just chosen to be US President in 1961 and his acknowledgment of the Chinese characters in this discourse is as yet a challenged one, yet Kennedy's ageless motivational shrewdness despite everything resounds to millions considerably after 50 years. 

One such story of emergency yielding open door is the tale of Indian business person and Snapdeal prime supporter Kunal Bahl. In 2007, in the wake of moving on from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, Bahl stowed work a designing activity at Seattle-based Microsoft, yet US migration authorities dismissed his application for a H-1B visa, which prompted Bahl's arrival to India. 

The dismissal ended up being an open door for Bahl. After three years, in February 2010, Bahl and his companion Rohit Bansal propelled Snapdeal. 

Snapdeal accomplished the unicorn startup status in 2014. Snapdeal has now developed to get one of the biggest internet business commercial centers in India and was esteemed at $6.5 billion of every 2019. Snapdeal is probably the fiercest contender for US-based Amazon and Walmart-claimed Flipkart. 

At the point when the Trump's H-1B visa boycott news broke on Tuesday, Ash Lilani, Founder and Managing Partner of Saama Capital, took to Twitter to remind Indian nerds for the open door emergency like this hurls. Lilani tweeted that US' boycott choice is India's benefit, "I continue considering today and how a US visa issue drove him to return home and be an impetus in the formation of Snapdeal. I trust we see numerous a lot progressively such examples of overcoming adversity come out of this." 

Bahl recalling the dismissal time frame says, "I didn't have a clue about this 13 years prior when my H-1B visa was dismissed, however haven't lamented a second since." "India is the place that is known for enormous chances," the 36-year-old is hopeful about the open doors for youthful Indians.
