how do we do?
The process of creating self-initiated products progresses in form of a simple cascade.
An artist creates a product in form of his service. He trains individuals to make the product. These trained individuals in turn, train other individuals from their communities or people belonging to weaker sections of society. Thus, a project is generated.
The project involves a specific number of industrious, self employed individuals. These artisans aren’t employed by us as they generate projects on their own without any intervention. These artisans are enthusiastic and self motivated due to their new found economic independence.
They are connected with their product as their infant as they built it from scratch to finish.
They can alter and modify the product as they wish to create and offer them
at a price, suitable to them.

that happened to us
Today, every youth is different and is very confident about embracing that fact. He wishes to make a statement and celebrate the fact, he’s not a just another face in the crowd.
Today, every youth is aware of his surroundings and is opinionated. He is proud to take stands for or against the issues that concern humanity, be it global warming or world peace.
On a lighter note, the youth believes in multitasking. His iPod, his internet, his camera are all rolled into one cell phone. He carries the same single notebook everywhere to every lecture. The front pages become his college book, the middle ones, and his MBA tutorials. The back pages are where the creator in him comes to life. Be it poetry, graffiti, sketches of weeping eyes or just the regular game of “cross-and-zero.”
Today, environmental awareness is at its peak. People are resorting to recycling, renovation and
reducing the usage of plastic in any form.
