From School-Boy To EntrepreneurTilak is no other than any teenager in India. He is a typical 8th grader at Garodia International School in Mumbai, who still complains about his father, Mr. Vishal Mehta, coming home from the office late. It was not until one day when an incident occurred, where Tilak wanted a few books from another end of the city urgently. He couldn’t ask his father as he came home tired after a day’s work. So, Mehta was left with no options but to wait for another day and got amazed when his father told him that the courier charges to deliver the book would cost even more than the book itself! Tilak got the inspiration from The Dabbawallas, whose swiftness and efficiency to deliver food items across the city, which is always on time and is very cheap. Mehta wanted to use this network chain to parcel even the non-food items across the town. Papers N Parcels is a startup which provides door to door pick-up & delivery services ranging from a pen to all your essential documents. When asked about his young age, Tilak Mehta said it didn’t matter if I am young and still in school. I took it up as a problem that is waiting and wanting to be solved. And after that, there was no turning back!
A Dream Called ‘Papers N Parcels’Tilak’s vision is to “Make everyone’s life easier no matter if they are a delivery partner, a Dabbawala or a loyal customer”. The startup is primarily based on a mobile application that has more than 200 employees. Apart from it, more than 300 Dabbawalas are connected to his startup, which delivers around 1200 parcels daily to their destination on the same day. Tilak said, “Papers N parcels is my dream. And I will work with my full efficiency to increase it.”
