2INDYA, like any other small startup, was conceptualized in the brain, keeping it as a future blog making waves. (!) However, later on, as the knowledge of domains, industry and technology kept increasing, we thought that we can develop it into a full-fledged website offering content on various topics.
We still have not robbed it off from its informal content but have made it more categorized, directed and focussed on some topics. We are a team of young people sitting in a very small town in Punjab. At the same time, we have contributors, who work with us from their own locations. Some contributors offer press releases, guest articles–we mention the name whenever an article is contributed by a person not from our team.
Vivek conceptualized the website from being a light-reading blog to an active and dedicated presentation on various topics. Vivek is a mechanical engineer by academics but his interest in writing took him on to a very difficult journey including content writing, editing, proofreading, freelancing, print media and blogging. Apart from working in these areas, he keeps his interest in psychology, philosophy, music, singing, musical instruments, cognitive sciences, human languages, poetry, history, literature, theatre, drawings, fauna-exploring, ornithology, photography, sports, arts, research, teaching, etc.
Gaurav Mittal is an MCA and keeps his eyes on SEO techniques, php coding, and other similar stuff. A cool guy at heart, Gaurav enjoys listening to music, online networking and online games. An easy-going person, he loves to spend his time learning techniques online. Right from his young age, he tried to analyze things from a different perspective–not normally found in other youngsters of his age. At the same time, loves to take out time to enjoy a dinner or some cool conversation. Has contributed immensely for the designing part of 2INDYA and along with Lokesh, makes a deadly combination that keeps 2INDYA alive.
Lokesh is termed as the “geek of the small town” where he lives. “Kaku”, as known to his friends, has the tendency to solve any problem faced by his friends–wastes a lot of time diagnosing hardware/software problems of others. It is a tendency and not capability because he finds it difficult to say ‘no’! A gem of a person at heart, he has hardly hurt anybody in his life. Loves to learn new things ranging from photography, hacking, imaging, and what not (though knows nothing of it!). Writes on technical stuff and manages the back-end of 2INDYA with Gaurav.
