Mumbai: Vishaal Mathur, who hails from Jaipur, has been an NRI for over two decades. Last, he was settled in Singapore, where he worked with some of the leading companies, which are into satellite operations - SES, MESAT, Kacific Broadband Satellites. Not to forget well known channels like ESPN, TEN Sports, ZEE Telefilms, Bharat 24, etc.
And then struck the covid-19 pandemic. While the globe was going through a trying time, Mathur decided to move, bag and baggage, to his hometown.
Imbued with unbridled enthusiasm, Mathur was not the one to sit quietly. Setting up a charitable trust in the name of his iconic grandfather, Mathuradas Mathur, he immersed himself into lending assistance. During the most challenging times, the newly formed trust provided food, medical supplies, even oxygen concentrates to local gurudwaras, government hospitals, doctors and paramedics.
Mathur always had a passion to proactively promote the royal sport, polo, in the memory of his grandfather. A well known political figure, Late Mathuradas Mathur is a revered persona. The last three annual exhibition polo cup matches have witnessed the participation of celebrities like the present chief minister Ashok Gehlot, India TV chairman and editor in chief Rajat Sharma, HH Maharaja Gaj Singh of Marwar, HH Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, chef Sanjeev Kapoor, actor and producer Sohail Khan and Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.
And now Mathur has launched his own consultancy venture. He has already started advising PT Telkomsat Satellite of Indonesia. Furthermore, he has also been appointed as Member Sales Representative at Asia Pacific Satellite Communications Council (APSCC).
It would also be appropriate to add that Mathur has tremendous interest in books and authors and has organised book sessions for well known personas like Vir Sanghvi, Kabir Bedi, Divya Dutta, Tusshar Kapoor, etc. in Jaipur.
