As a non tech person how difficult was it convinced tech people to join very well tell you what worked for me. I changed my mindset as a non tech person. I was very apologetic all the time and all these investors and all these people make you like tech nahi aata saare engineer se bhe bhare hote saare engineers hote hai mujhe lagta hai saare engineer hero nahi hote. I feel it's a mindset change which I had to make where I feel tech is always an enabler, let's not get carried away to do people talk AI machine learning big data nonsense. All these big jargons we talked about but any life ko sahi karne me mere zindagi ko asaan karne me personal or professional kya karta hai aur tech kaise enable karta hai So for me my business is stories. And now to make the cost of stories come down will my scale big better data who can enable me. So once I change the positioning of my being defensive and feeling bad that I'm not non-tech that I always was under this inferiority complex that I'm not a tech person the day I said that me business me sahi kar rahe ho. someone please come and help me then. I just need tech for scale right and things like enabler, tech is not the answer. Yeah again, Deepak asked very good questions. You've been a start-up observer for a long time.

It's painful. It's lonely, but somewhere people have seen have not given up in the other thing is that people who've been very maniacal in a positive way about this is what I have to do. This is what I have to do and Inconsistent at it like for me a very good example personally. I like people like I like bhavish in some strange sort of way like barbecue Kamala.
