“The first time I visited Mumbai, over a decade ago in the year 2007, I came here and got acquainted with the Kala Ghoda festival, I took part for a few years and that’s when our brand started garnering attention and piqued the interest of many. I began by opening my first store at the Mumbai Airport, and now, finally I have got the opportunity to come back to where it all began – at Kala Ghoda!” – Anand Prakash
Our legacy. This diminutive book contains a few lines that talk about the philosophy of Anand Prakash. Our purpose, ethos and vision. We are in transition like a tide; falling, rising, failing and succeeding. For more than a decade, we have weathered many a seasons and this has turned us into a resilient tree; growing with each day spreading creativity and joy while we aim to reach the sky. Stay inspired because impossible is nothing. See you soon at our flagship store at Kala Ghoda, Fort, Mumbai.
TK Saab, a master die maker only uses a ramshackle magnifying glass similar to the ones used at watch repair shops to view the drawings that we have for him. His simplicity is inspiring and admirable. He proudly shows us his full day bus ticket that he can use to travel seamlessly across Delhi. We enjoy one to one conversations with most of our people, we listen to them; their joys and sorrows, their stories of hope and despair. In the past he had to sell-off two houses to pay for his wife’s medical treatment. Last year his daughter got married, it was a struggle for him to collect funds. He is a proud man, always dressed immaculately. We discuss the tiger that we have given him, he is the only living legend that can make a die of it. He will painstakingly carve out every hair of the tiger. His tools are basic and the work like no other. He keeps telling us about this one cutter that someone got him from London, It’s completely finished with regular use and is hoping we get him a replacement. We have learnt to value his work because he is one of the rare talents that still remains in this field.
He is and will always be an integral part of the Anand Prakash story.
