Siddharth S. Kumar

"Here comes everybody! What does a brand when there is a great fragmentation of viewership, disintermediation and democratisation. Practically, anybody can be a brand, equipped with the Internet, social networking and so on. Which is where we come in to work with the existing brands and help them deal with the realities of the Internet."
Siddharth S. Kumar, Promoter of Buzzar TV (http://www.pixelkraft.in/)

Nice to hear about Siddharth Whom I knew as a microbiologist , still I had a feeling that he is up to do some thing more than microbiology. He is quick and smart for his batch mates and a challenging personality, he was different from others , its a pleasure to have known him in his earlier days.
