Meet MK One: It took 200+ people from 80+ cities working together over 4.5 years to build technologies which could provide cleaner air to 3Bn+ people for costs less than $0.01/person/day! Our baby is now taller than me! This was shot on an iPhone, Praan will post more pics!

Majority of the times, once you put out an offer letter in India, people have health issues/travelling to hometown/family emergencies/network problems - there's absolutely no honesty or integrity in the system. Just say you need 2 days to think and come back.

Cross Border transaction compliance, hardware R&D compliance, and manufacturing compliance are no joke in India - major kudos to the @praan_inc accounts team. It's pure havoc, especially for companies like ours who build hardware with pace in mind.

I thought Bangalore is advanced and such - drainage systems?!? The city just stalled w the level of rains Mumbai receives casually.

Very few severely impactful things can be done in a laid back manner. I don't think it's possible to build scalable hard tech working 9-5 & 5 days a week. Even when I worked with MIT, everyone, including profs were putting in 70-100hr weeks to make impactful HW in record time.
