HYDERABAD: Bored of their regular nineto- five mechanical jobs, two MBA graduates, who are also siblings, decided to quit their jobs and do something on their own – something more than a mere job that stares into the computer screen the whole day.
We’re talking about city-based sisters, Pallavi and Tanmayi Marthi, aged 27 and 25 years old respectively, who recently (December 13, 2011, to be precise) started a website called supatha.in.
“My sister and I felt our jobs were mundane and wanted to start something of our own which wasn’t monotonous and also would benefit the society,” explains Tanmayi, the younger of the two.
Since they come from a family of writers and publishers (their father being a writer and editor, and mother who worked at a publishing house), the duo understood the problems that small publishing houses and writers face.
To bridge the gap between Telugu readers and Telugu authors, the sisters started the portal, which would make buying and selling of Telugu books more easier and accesible.
“But, we also have books in other languages,” clarifies Tanmayi.
So how is this website any different from Amazon.com or Flipkart.
com? Explains Tanmayi, “The USP Supatha.in is that we stock up on rare Telugu books that may not be available anymore.
So, if someone out there has a rare book and wishes to give it away, we can stock it with us and someone else who wants to read the book can simply purchase it from us from the portal.” For details contact: 94412 57961, firstname.lastname@example.org
