10 Years of
Mission 'Internet Maturity'!

A bold initiative can make you a pioneer. We earned that badge in 2014. But thought leadership is a different ball-game. It's not established over a few weeks, months or even a couple of years. Decade is the right unit to measure it. We have recently qualified :)

 2010

More than 1000 cups of lemon tea and coffee were poured into research & ideation on DCIM and writing a book on it, at Hotel Lake View Ashoka in Bhopal. For over 18 months, Raghu's attendance there was so perfect, that he was lovingly presented the Diwali gift box meant for the hotel staff (of course on the Diwali day itself, which wasn't a gap). Also, the spot shown below was officially named the "Idea Point" to acknowledge his obsessive regularity :)
