  • Sri Rama, Lakshmana and Hanuman from the Ramayana turned up on my doorstep, singing their timeless tale.

    A culture survives by its stories and the storytellers. India has been fortunate to have a rich story-telling tradition.

    For a little time the cares of a startup gave way to a story that will outlast us all.
