Therein, lies the twist in the tale!

A Twist in the Tale

After three decades of double-digit growth in India, Telecom and IT sectors had begun to slacken. So were the careers of these so called gentlemen. Not the energies, mind you! On the other hand, all the principles of ICT combined with retailing had begun to sow the seeds of another industry to potentially rival the combined growth all boom sectors of the past. This was a good opportunity for these men to combine their experience in ICT and give some freedom of expression to their passion for Movies, music, games, toys, sports, photography and gadgets.

Another common factor that tied them together was that they were all bitten by the entrprenurial bug, So whether it was the water-cooler chat in the 12-hour-a-gruelling-day in the office, or some idle chat over a cup of coffee, the thread was the same - "kuch karte hain!" (Let us do something).
