Cool Paragraph:

In his spare time, Gaurav loves to play Ludo with his 5-year old and a 9-year old. Another favorite, is to discuss the mysteries of universe and answer their questions, discovering a lot of wonders in the process. Reading is a past passion, that he’s trying hard to get back to.

His most current personal project is to work closely with his wife for digitalization of (almost all) domestic services – with the likes of PayTM, Dunzo, Big Basket, Swiggy & Urban Clap – to free up a large chunk of time back for family fun.
