Change Maker Awards

Anand Prakash – Official gift sponsor for The Hindu and Business Line change maker awards.

The award recognises unsung heroes changing India for the better.

Prototype

Sometimes, we are left with a lot of pieces that are prototypes. These always remain the only piece because we usually end up improvising the design with an increase in size or something. Many a times we decide against doing the product as it does not fit into what we had envisaged.

The question is what do we do with so many prototypes?

Featured here is a prototype that was a narrower version of our Hexagon cuff.

Numismatique – work in progress

Numismatique.

Work in progress, we are tracing a few old Indian coins for our upcoming range.

Collecting British-India silver coins has been a hobby since childhood and the time is right for a range of products with numismatics as the theme.

Conversation

Conversations with you has helped Anand Prakash grow to where it is today. Your ideas have helped us create better poducts and feedback was immensely helpful in introspecting.

. . . . . . . . . . .

Today we stand at the cross-roads looking at the best way forward, we have grown as a brand and our design language has constantly adapted with the times. We have become a lot more experimental and we are not shying away from sharing our inspirations with you.

. . . . . . . . . . .

A lot of our ideas and stories are rooted in past experiences of Anand Prakash and in the coming days we hope to create products that will enthrall you with ideas, creativity and innovation that you have come to expect from us.

. . . . . . . . . . .

We look forward to our conversations with you…

Coming up on 10th March:

New Keychains

Keychains.

New. Bold. Minimal.

No intricacies like the usual.

A paradigm shift.

Coming soon.

I always get the first prototype to test. Perks of working at AP.

Little Llama Cafe, Mussoorie

Every time I visit Mussoorie, the one place I don’t miss is @littlellamacafe run by school friends Tenzing and Lynette. Its their passion for food that has brought them this far.

They always welcome us with a smile and go out of their way in fulfilling all our gastronomic demands.

The beautiful hills and the green landscape visible from their cafe have been aptly shared on my Instagram; the frame is always different depending on the weather.

During season time, there is a huge rush and the waiting time can stretch to hours; all Alwynians are always welcome and we manage to squeeze ourselves in.

Their shakes are to die for because Lynette is always experimenting and the food is fresh.

One of my favourite anecdotes is when Lynette divided the toppings of one wood fired pizza into veg and non veg because me and a friend only wanted half a pizza each.

I can sit here with my favourite ginger-honey-lemon tea for hours at a stretch.

Thank you Lynette and Tenzing for this laidback place amongst the hustle and bustle of Mussoorie.

Till we meet again.
