The Curse of the Marwaris....


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

Why do I say this?

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"
