Bistriti Poddar


“If your cause is greater, the consequence will take care of itself. My cause is to inspire!” – Bistriti Poddar

What does it take to be an entrepreneur? An idea, a strategy, a vision? It takes passion over anything else as is the unwavering belief of Bistriti Poddar. To quote,

“Talent takes you far, but it’s your passion that will take to places you didn’t know existed” – Bistriti Poddar

Bistriti Poddar, 31, is a thinker, strategist, keynote speaker, entrepreneur, writer and a visionary if we were to state adjectives. Having started out a wide-ranging career as a content writer and upon spending years in the digital industry, she discovered her purpose – delivering impact one syllable at a time.

This revelation led to the inception of Bistriti’s brainchild, Paperless Postcards.

Paperless Postcards hence became the first and largest social community of nonfictional conversations. Stirring dialogues originating from daily life help the 3 million avid fans to contemplate, retrospect, laugh and stay inspired almost like their daily dose of ‘life’.

Through her words and talks, she has transformed, touched and impacted lives and yet what’s most inspiring is her perseverant attitude. Bistriti doesn’t follow norms; she breaks through boxes, challenges the status quo and loves dogs.

Her story began with a toxic childhood and even more so, a toxic family. Between having nothing to eat and working 18 out of 24 hours, she found respite in her writing. From writing about her story to the stories of those around her, she founded one of the most aesthetically addictive, intriguing and impactful communities, Paperless Postcards. Her story is not about simply talent or sheer luck, it is a nonfictional biography of defiance, passion, aggression and the undying love for her craft!
