As a founder, I am quite paranoid about the diminishing B2B industry and uprise of the DIGITAL MARKET (B2C) segment. For this, one has to be well versed, with the latest technology and I also read all the latest articles on current affairs and economics, to keep myself updated.

No, we are self-funded.
What’s the biggest misconception people have about you? Why do they have that? What’s the reality?
Anger is the biggest evil in this world, and I firmly believe in this line. Being an entrepreneur, I feel you need to maintain your cool. Managing anger is a tedious task and that’s the reason why a recent follower of Yoga and Meditation.
People think that I have anger issues but in reality, that is the misconception about me. I am fun loving, happy-go-lucky guy.
But one of my ideology is that “ If you want to make everyone happy, then start selling ice cream”
I also firmly believe in saying of Abdul Kalam “If you want to shine like a sun, you must burn like a sun”
