Open Talk @DSIM
An Interview with Arun Bhati, Founder & COO of Orahi.com
“O Rahi” is a Hindi term and translates to “O Traveller”. It revolves around the idea of travelling together where two or more people who travel in the same direction share a ride (carpool).
Q1. Hi Arun, thank you for taking out the time. Tell us how the idea of starting a venture “Orahi.com” came to your mind. Who supported your idea in the beginning?
Ans. Office commuting is a big challenge for all of us, and congestion and pollution are two parts of it. I and Sameer Khanna, the Founders of Orahi, decided to solve these challenges by using technology.
Now Orahi has become India’s biggest and the most trusted carpool app for home-office-home commute.
Today it has 40000+ users on board from Delhi/NCR and together they have shared 18 Lac KMs. People from Orahi community have saved 350 tonnes of CO2 emissions, and they will continue to do the same.
40,000+ members | 18 Lac KMs shared | 350 Tonnes of emissions saved.
Ans. Yes, lots of new plans are in the pipeline for simplifying the commuting problems, and I would request you to stay in touch for knowing the same step-by-step. Right now, we are planning to reduce 30% of the total cars from the roads of Delhi/NCR, then we will do it for the entire nation and then globally.
Balancing work, life and friends is always a nice question that is asked to us. We are fortunate to have a supportive friends and family – so, their support automatically balances everything.
