Ayan iyengar

He has worn out more shoes than probably you or I might have bought. Never a one, to be at his actual home he feels at home wherever he may be, since he is always on the move and much used to it by now. Come rain, come shine, he makes it a point to travel to exotic locations and get into the nitty gritty of whatever he comes across. Never mind those small inconveniences that others would shudder to think about. Unfazed by anything thrown at him and quick to reply this Socrates is our lovable asset, a know-all of sorts, our mobile storehouse of information whom we always bank on for that ‘Ayan perspective’. We let him loose on whatever that catches his fancy and which he would like to expound on. If like us you would like to get a different angle to things you may try your luck at press@unnatisilk.com
