The Main Man & Founder
The main man at The Dorm Shop, what he does is still pretty ambiguous. His biggest contribution has been to assemble this awesome team together. A mechanical engineer from Drexel, he stuck to the engineering profession for a short while before setting up The Pamposh (Budget Hotel, Delhi) and Kolkata Movietone (Film Studio, Kolkata), he is now obsessively involved with every aspect of The Dorm Shop.
Being a mechanical engineer, he prefers all aspects of the company to run like a well-oiled machine, and we strongly believe that he will be behind our backs till we turn into robots. When he’s not annoying us he is seen doing the same to people at the gym, home, bar…actually everywhere!

Ayush Sharma of House Sharma, the First of His name. Well this introduction makes it clear how big a Game of Thrones fan I am but Friends will still always be my First Love and Suits my first inspiration. I'd like to someday see myself as a hedge fund manager with billions in net worth and till then I'd like to see myself work in innumerable start ups and learning along the way. Having a fauji dad doesn't mean having to wake up at 6 in the morning but being an NM student does still I absolutely love my sleep. My idea of a day off when not travelling means sleeping, eating and having a friend’s marathon.

I love economics but I'm really bad at math. I love singing. I also love leadership and planning. I love tasks, but hate deadlines-however,I work better with them. I love the feeling we get right after sneezing, and I hate the feeling we get when we are getting used to without the fan and the electricty just comes back. I am reserved but if you get to know me, I'd never stop talking and you will regret that moment you spoke to me becuase you dint want me to feel like a loner.
