Say something about your beginning (Your childhood years and the beginning of your business) *
I was very shy and reserved when in 1991, I got married to Vijay while I was studying my last year B.Com at Pune. After marriage I came to Mumbai and started giving various exams for jobs but every where I failed in interviews as I was not possessing other skills other than academic. After a gap of 2 years, I stated studying Law in night college at Mithibai. In last year I joined Sr. Advocate. My daughters were born after completion of law. As my first commitment was towards my daughters I could not concentrate on my practice or I can say there was no vision or mission in my life. For 14 yrs. I worked with a Senior.
