Our Story

We are bunch of veteran journalists with experience spanning visual, digital, and print media. After spending a considerable part of our career writing for the destitute and the marginalised, and chronicling their struggles, we have now decided to take the path of struggles and challenges ourselves by delving into entrepreneurship.

We started our professional career at different parts of India. But we always nursed a dream of starting our own media company. After treading different paths in life, a phone call from one of us got us together and we finally plunged to a world where ‘nothing is impossible’!
