Cloze Test asked :

Bright young engineers from IITs, tech firms, public sector companies, jobs and security are still very much a part of our discourse 30-plus years later. But India has, within that realm, made a generational leap or two as far as mindsets are concerned. A couple of years back, Nitin Saluja, a young IIT-Bombay graduate, junked his high-profile consultancy job and decided to start a chain of ‘customised tea’ cafes. This time, it was his businessman father who was worried. Tea cafes? Why was the son ‘stepping down’ the ladder of professional prestige? What will people say? The young man, of course, didn’t have any of these concerns and rightly so. Today, he is what you’d call a successful start-up entrepreneur with nearly 20 outlets of Chaayos (and counting) in major Indian cities and venture funding from the names that matter.
Many of the ideas may be copies of their successful models in the US but they have been customised to work and succeed in tough Indian conditions. And the result of risk meeting capital at the right turn has been the birth of a virtuous cycle of more and more Indians wanting to dream big and act on those dreams.
