Human Care Central Startup Diaries – 1

We appreciate your patience! Even as we continue with, what often feels like an almost insurmountable mountain, there are always voices of encouragement that work as a massive shot in the arm. Every founder of a startup will tell you that every minute shot of that nature is worth its weight in gold.

Film Review: SHAMITABH

Excerpt: Shamitabh is built upon a novel idea and gifted shoulders of its two principal actors. But soon after enamouring us with an electric start, it begins to overindulge, overreach and meander before eventually falling much short of its promise. Review: [Spoiler Alert: Some details revealed in the description of basic plot] A ‘mixture’ (word explained in the film) of an earnest facade and...
