She believes that tea isn’t just another drink, it’s an experience! 2227

In a country like India where , the iconic “Wah Taj” advertisement on DD National, with Zakir Hussain, the tabla maestro, endorsing tea at Taj Mahal is a real scene in almost every household as mornings begin with the conventional milk chai, there is a woman who is on a mission to bring quality tea, in a delicious way to everyday lives of people. Meet Ruhani Sandhu, founder of Rangsaa who is an engineer by education and an entrepreneur by choice.

Newness begins with a departure from the old thinking. In a country like India, where more than 98% tea drinkers drink typical milk tea and are not aware of premium tea segment, we wanted to create a unique product, a healthy drink that encourages people to look at tea differently. This departure in thinking created a new possibility. It created Rangsaa.

– says Ruhani Sandhu, the creative brain behind all unique Rangsaa tea recipes.

In the past few decades when women have taken lead in every field one could imagine, Ruhani’s venture Rangsaa started a movement to promote advance tea drinking culture and bring awareness of global teas.

Her tea journey began when she moved to the US for her higher studies but much of her passion for tea is credited to her Chinese roommate, who often took her to tea ceremonies across New York. Coming back to India brought in a big change in her life. Having lived a quarter of her life in the US, she was habituated to a certain kind of tea that she couldn’t find in India.

Even the popular Indian brands that talked about premium loose tea or premium tea blends were actually selling very low grade and stale tea.

– recalls Ruhani who believes that tea isn’t just another drink, it’s an experience.

She went on to have a successful corporate career in India but tea was always on her mind. In 2012, she partnered with her school friend and designed a unique tea menu for his start-up concept tea cafe called ‘Chaayos’. This was her first ‘break’ in tea, an opportunity to experiment on such a large scale.

This experience accelerated her desire to create recipes and the styles of tea that she wanted to popularise. The simplicity and spirituality associated with tea intrigued her to the extent that she decided to quit her job and started her blog ‘Love for Tea’ (www.loveforteas.com) which soon became popular among tea lovers with over 15,000 readers across 150 countries today.

Within no time, she embarked on her own venture – Rangsaa, a premium tea brand that derives its name from the words ‘rang’ and ‘saa’; rang means ‘color’ in Hindi and ‘saa’ means tea in Assamese respectively, blending to form ‘colorful tea’.

We work with several chefs and artists to create a fancy eco-system around tea and related products, with an aim to educate people about quality tea and promote it as a healthy drink.

– tells Ruhani who aspires to foster an advance tea drinking culture, establishing her brand in the premium tea segment.

While there were times when her dream of creating the best tea blends seemed impossible due to the reluctance of tea gardens to work with the domestic market owing to a lack of demand and price-for-quality issues, she remained driven and passionate about tea.

With tea industry as big as Google, Rangsaa’s blends and tisanes are the results of a precise and careful selection of evocative herbs with proven health benefits, designed for the modern tea drinker. Creating blends that can transform into delicious fitness drinks, cocktails and even used in cooking is Rangsaa’s innovative step in escaping from our fixed ideas about tea.

What else can a ‘chai lover’ ask for?

So, next time you look for some luxuriant tea experience, Rangsaa is the ultimate destination.

The Man Behind The Glamour and Beauty! 1764

Jewelery and Accessories add a little sparkle wherever you go.

Absolutely right!! Coz every piece of jewelry tells a story. Isn’t it??

Today I am here to share the story of a man who fancied, created and designed his own brand for jewellery. Meet Mr Abhishek Sehgal, owner of the fast-growing online brand of jewelry, JEVELEN, that has already made its mark all over the world, and is all set to make a mark in India too.

India is a country with a great passion for jewels, art, and culture. Various stones like ruby, diamonds, emeralds etc, not only have their prominence in enhancing beauty but also are used in significance to the horoscopes. We find custom made ornaments depending on our choices and Jevelen is one such brand set out to bring a difference at an affordable price and at the comfort of buying online.

I feel like Jewelry just happened! It kind of chose me, I think!!

– says Abhishek, thinking back to how he came into the business of gems and diamonds.

[aesop_image img=”https://gallinukkad.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/jevelen-owner1.jpg” offset=”-100px” align=”right” lightbox=”on” captionposition=”left” revealfx=”off”]

Being born to a business class family of Delhi, he was always driven by a desire to start something on his own. A business that sets him as a unique and successful entrepreneur, a job where he can be his own boss. After completing his senior secondary in education, he decided to go to Sydney, Australia to find himself a job. But it was difficult to find a good one and he worked in a couple of places trying to find a living. He also worked in Agricultural farm land for few months before he found of job in a jewelry workshop.

I have always loved designing and doing creative things since my childhood and finding a job in designing and creating jewelry out of precious stones was like a dream come true to me.

– recalls Abhishek, with a smile on his face remembering his earlier days of his dream job when he initially started as a worker.

Although he was the most intelligent and best worker, his salary did not make him reach his dreams and to make his own mark with his talents that he learned over the time while designing the jewels.

Then is when he decided to start JEVELEN his own brand of beautiful Jewelry and accessories. He began to design and market his products. The start was definitely not a walk on a bed of roses. He did struggle to bring his business into one of the top-selling jewelers without any much back-up, support and being self-funded. Well, as they say, “where there is a will, there is a way”…. stands true to this man. There was no stepping back once he started and he began with promoting his products. As he was in Australia, he started from there and slowly he spread the business globally.

The biggest challenge for me was creating a product differentiation. Keeping that in mind, our products are unique in design and in its make. Jevelen Jewels are made with Rhodium, an American Diamond. The best part of it is they are not copied or merchandised and are original.

–  tells Abhishek who is all eager to bring it to his home country that is India.

Being successful globally, he is looking forward to launching the brand here in India with a dream of many possibilities. Launching his brand alone is not the idea, but he also wishes to provide jobs to the unemployed by setting up workshops of jewelry making across many cities in the country thereby hiring people with a craftsman’s hand.

The company will be launched with about 50+ franchise outlets across PAN India and will be soon one of the major jewelry brands of our country. The company also donates 10% of their monthly profit to charity in terms of child education, old-age homes, widows, animal feeding and orphanages trying to provide a hand to those in need.

Here is a man who not only has a good heart and is talented with an art of designing gems & diamonds but also knows the value of hard work.

As an entrepreneur and a good human being, Abhishek Sehgal, truly stands as an inspiration who has achieved so much at such a young age.

So, what are you waiting for? Go check Jevelen website and order up the fanciest jewels of your choice.

When a dream comes true!! 146

I still remember the excitement I used to feel every time I saw aeroplane when I was a kid. In my little mind, I always wished to see that flying beauty from near, wanted to touch, wanted to sit inside…wanted to fly with it!!

As I grew up, my wish.. my dream too became big…from travelling in an aeroplane it was now to roam the world. I always look up to the people who are living abroad with a great desire to be one of them. Honestly, sometimes I was jealous too. Fascinated by the thought of living abroad in a totally new culture and society of different people, I never left watching aeroplanes from my balcony thinking when will I be able to get flown away! But deep down I knew that being from a middle-class family, the dream was a hard nut to crack.

Years went by and the thought got stored somewhere beneath the layers of my mind. Education and career became the priority. Cupid struck and I got engaged with the love of my life. Everything was going on as usual until one day when I got the news that my would be has got a job in Dubai. An electric current ran through me and my long lost dream was fresh in my mind. I was both happy and amazed. Many questions were battling inside my mind. I just wanted to experience flying to be there.

“Don’t worry I will make your dream come true”, said my love, while calling from Dubai. The very next day I applied for the passport. Still was not sure whether I will be able to make it but applied and after about two months it was there in my hand. The eagerness of being there was multiplying with each day passing away still I was left with no option than to keep twirling its pages.

The thing which was essential before visiting Dubai was my marriage. As it was to be love marriage it took a little time and struggle but yes it happened. Always will be grateful to our parents. And yes a month later I was all set to fly. Flying to Dubai finally. My eyes shined when I saw my visa for the first time giving me goosebumps. Still clueless whether it was the excitement of going to Dubai or for flying.

Finally, the day arrived and was all set to fly to Dubai. I was experiencing mixed emotions. On one hand was sad to leave the home country, family and friends whereas on the other hand was happy that I am getting closer to my dream. My each footstep was making me getting closer and closer to my destination which I had always longed for. As the plane was taxiing for taking off butterflies ran through my stomach and my heartbeats were faster than a bullet train.

Being a first-time flyer I paid attention to all the safety instructions being provided by the air hostess while some others don’t seem to be interested at all. The journey was about to take 3 and a half hours time and there were many entertainment channels available to keep us occupied. I briefed through some while relishing the yummy food provided.

The pilot made the announcement as we neared to our destination. My heart jolted with joy and I had set my eyes on the window to see the night view of the city. I was mesmerized by the beauty of the city. Street lights looked like orange pearls and the skyscrapers touching the sky. Also got the glimpse of the famous Burj Khalifa. So was now at Dubai, beginning of a new life in a new city.

“So dear at last you reached”, said my husband and a feeling of contentment ran through me.
