During the recession of 2008, Milind had to let go of his high profile job. He was in his late 30s then with 25+ lakh of financial debt and was married with two amazing kids.

At this critical juncture, a normal thing for anyone to do would be to quickly get another job , but that’s not what Milind chose to do.

Instead of finding a job, Milind during this critical phase decided to carve out something of his own and face the life challenges head on that came along the way
