The Curse of the Marwaris....


The tragedy is that despite being rich, successful and entrepreneurial, the Marwari community is CURSED.

Dear Alok,

Apologies (reason mentioned at the end of the message)

I have been reading various posts here since last year and i must admit that is one of the best sites providing loads of information which even a google search would not give (Thanks to all the members contributiion). These days I have been accessing more than google for information as it is first hand views, feedback and opinion. I will not be surprised if years down the line Rodinhoods overtakes google :). is a phenomena and not a mere website where people meet and exchange views, its larger than life.

[Apologies for not writing earlier. Valid reason though :) ..I was so overwhelmed by the entire gamut of information site provided, i was flooded with information and took me entire year to write back in ]

Best Regards,
Santoshyas Joshi

7%20straight%20questions%20Rodinhood%20Interview.docxhi Sir,

Thanks for the welcome, 

This mail is a bigger gesture than you Reid Hoffman had accorded to you.


Its been only yesterday that I was clearing my desktop and found a word document "7 Straight Questions Rodinhood Interview" which i had saved almost a month back, thinking that I would fill in when free..... however like many fellow "Rodinhoodians", I too kept sleeping over it.

However, yesterday I did fill it and thought of submitting it today.

I have restarted writing a blog only recently after inspiration from you. I hope that in a few weeks, i could make it interesting and share with fellow "Rodinhoodians"
