About The Founder:
Mr. Navajyoti Thakuria was no stranger to the business of Assam Silk products as he has seen his mother Mrs. Runumi Thakuria get involved in this field of business right from his childhood. Navajyoti was struck with the idea of E-Bozar when he saw the ever increasing demand of Assam Silk and other traditional products of Assam and thus came up with the solution of opening up an e-commerce site to enable anyone in every nook and corner of this world to buy genuine and laboratory tested Assam Silk products right from the comfort of their home.
He had to face many obstacles in due course of his journey in becoming a successful entrepreneur. It was the experience he gained from his father Mr. Mahidhar Thakuria which helped him overcome all those obstacles and become what he is today.
His wife Mrs. Gitali Saikia Thakuria also acted as a supporting pillar for him. His cousin brother Dhrubajyoti Kalita and two of his friends from Sualkuchi, Dixit Mahanta and Jogesh Das also helped him throughout his journey.
But as they say success does not come easy. His phases of difficulties started when he moved to Guwahati for higher education. He failed to continue his college due to prolonged illness and fell into depression but was always encouraged by his mother. After recovering from his illness he joined his father and his elder brother in their family business but his thoughts and desires to achieve something with his own efforts made him restless day after day.
Finally, Navajyoti established his own business in Guwahati and also managed to complete some technical courses and his degree from Krishna Kanta Handiqui State Open University (KKHSOU). He indulged himself into gaining more knowledge about e-commerce businesses and mobile applications during his free time and was struck by the idea of opening up an e-commerce site to introduce Assam Silk to the world. This led to the birth of this famous e-commerce platform “E-Bozar”.
Navajyoti’s future plan is to provide all the traditional items from all over Northeast to the world and also to help the Assamese film industry & mobile theatres with an online ticket booking system for all movie halls and mobile theatres in Assam.
