Umesh Sachdev, an entrepreneur from Chennai, India becomes the only Indian to be featured in Time magazine’s 2016 list of “10 millennials who are changing the world”. He was honoured by inclusion in the famed list for building a phone which can help people to interact and access critical services by communicating in their native languages.

Sachdev, along with his college friend Ravi Saraogi, founded Uniphore Software Systems. The startup produces software that allows people to interact with their phones and access services such as online banking by communicating in their native languages according to Time magazine. The product has a virtual assistant that can process more than 25 global languages and 150 dialects. In a country with 1,652 languages (according to the 1961 census), such a tool will come handy in ensuring inclusive development. As Time reported Sachdev is “bridging the gap between the digital and real world”. It said Sachdev found a solution to a problem that phones didn’t carry the language of villagers in rural India.


The Logical Indian applauds Umesh Sachdev for his initiative and accomplishment. We thank him for his efforts towards inclusive development and bridging the language gap.
