Asian Paints is an IT Company!

Wait! Before you click off, no, I’m not crazy. Asian PAINTS is indeed an IT company. As bizarre as that sounds, that is an entirely different can of worms to open, which we will get into, but before that, let me regale you with a scene. We’ve all had to have our house or a certain part of it painted at some point in time.

The Truth Behind JIO

Once upon a time, there was an industry that was flourishing, growing, and promising. It was known as Telecommunications.

Narayana Health: The factory of Cheapest Heart Surgeries

In the early 1950s, nobody would have known that a boy born in a tiny village in Karnataka would revolutionize how the Healthcare Industry works. Devi was the eighth of the nine children born in a humble background. Pampered by his mother, he was also ambitious from an early age as a boy on a Mission. It’s funny that his first mission was to build up big muscles to bash his siblings, who bullied him while growing up. What’s even funnier is he took up martial arts & body-building classes to fulfill his little aspiration. This laughter & joy of childhood turned into remorse a few years later when Devi’s mother got seriously ill. That was the first time he was introduced to the world of healthcare & doctors. He perceived Doctors as, Gods that saved lives.  Sadly, his beloved mother could not be saved due to the lack of quality healthcare & costly treatments. Devastated Devi knew this was a massive problem in society that needed a solution.  That day he decided to become a Doctor.  This young one was on a mission again, but this mission needed a direction that was some time away. As time passed, Devi developed an interest in heart surgeries after hearing about the first heart transplant in the world. That day his aspiration of becoming a doctor got the direction it required.
