For those who haven't seen the movie "Rocket Singh", this is one of my favorite dialogue in the movie where Manish Chaudhary tries to explain Ranbir Kapoor on how a company is made..
I hope the Entrepreneurs here will be able to connect with it..
Jab Khoon Pasina ek saath Kagaz par chapta hai nah,
Table Bed ban jaati hai, Aur Office Ghar..
Bhook Pyaas bhool jaati hai..
Baal Bacche rul jaate hain..
Tab jaake saali Company banti hai..
Aur woh kisiko Khairat mein nahin dee jaati..

So, the next time you are in a funding round and are probably being asked for a Higher Share and are offered a Lower Valuation, this might help.. ;)
[P.S. - Our beloved friend Mr. Alok Kejriwal hasn't seen the movie too..]
