“Our office is in Gurgaon, close to the market. Gurgaon is one of Delhi’s four major satellite cities in the Indian State of Hiryana.”
A few hours in an Indian market with Vivek Pahwa, 27 years old, and one of Asia’s Best Young Entrepreneurs in Business Week’s 2008 look at the top young Asian business people. With an eye for connecting people on the Internet, Pahwa first created DesiMartini.com, a social networking site in India. This was followed by SecondShaadi.com, a matrimonial site for people looking for a second marriage and has 70,000 registered users. His third site, Gaadi.com, is a research database for those who are looking to buy a new car. It is India’s No.2 automobile website. We met Vivek Pahwa after his day’s work in the marketplace in a neighbourhood of Kapashera, an urban village straddling the border between New Delhi and Gurgaon, Haryana.
