In an age of digital relationships where the race is in achieving more and being more, man has somewhere traded his foundational values for instant gratification and success. Having observed a growing trend in hollow lives and stressful work places, Mayank took it up as his mission to reignite the burnt out flames of love, integrity, humanity and persistence.
