I bought the domain India14.com on December 1st, 2008 by borrowing a credit card from my friend. It was not easy to ask for a credit card from anyone, but we all have one such friend.

Man Behind India14 : Shivam Dogr (That’s me in the middle)
I am the fountainhead of India14.
I may use big words at times, but I’m a really simple guy who loves to simplify complex stuff.
I started blogging out of my passions for learning & sharing. In 2008, I got to know about blogging & within a month, I was live with my first blog. The idea of connecting with the like-minded people and be able to share my knowledge with the world, I couldn’t resist the temptation of taking it seriously.
I found blogging to be a great medium for sharing my favorite things with the world. Initially, I started writing random stuff, but later on, I discovered how to make money blogging. I discovered “The Way” to become my own boss through the power of the internet. This was when I started sharing those things that worked for me.
That’s how India14 was born.
How an accident changed my life?
On June 28th, 2009, I had a terrible accident that changed my life forever. The doctors told me that I would never be able to walk again, and I nearly lost all hope and faith for a good life. I was devastated for days but when I saw my parents crying, the strange realization of “Am I the only one with the problem?” changed the course of my life.
That one profound thought had a great impact on my journey. I was bed-ridden for 7 monthsbut instead of giving up, I turned it into an oppurtunity. I spend countless hour learning and honing my skills in blogging.
A big thanks to an excellent surgeon (Dr. Prateek Gupta), I ultimately was able to walk and run again after being bedridden for seven months.
Blogging has given me a sense of freedom that I didn’t know was possible. I currently live a ” boss free” lifestyle where I travel around the world and blog from anywhere & everywhere (a.k.a. digital nomad).
I’m an introvert, but now I speak in front of hundreds of people at events & seminars. (This still gives me shiver).
India14: A non-profit initiative to grow blogging
In 2015, we organized an all India road trip and conducted a seminar in 13 stats of India. This non-profit drive has helped a lot of youngsters to understand the benefits of blogging and how to do this right way. This would not have been possible without the help of other blogging friends from various cities who came forward to help us organize it in their city.
When I’m not on my computer, I love traveling or trying my hands on any adventure sports.
So far, I have done skydiving, scuba diving, bungee jumping & now I’m looking forward to getting a scuba dive certification.
And to keep myself sane in this busy digital life, I love to meditate (Vipassana), travel & read.
So yeah, that’s all about me. I’ll leave you with this moment of relative seriousness:
When I first started India14, I had no idea how it was going to be. It was one of those things that I did but couldn’t explain why.
I just did it because I loved it!
I guess this is how the passion of a young heart can fuel an award-winning blog which has touched the lives of millions in the past 10 years!
