A Houmous story behind Techila
Like it is said and believed, great ideas come from the most unexpected corners. Who would have wondered that friends sitting in the shore of a beach with a few drinks in hand would have come up with such an innovative name like “Techila” inspired from the groovy beverage Tequila. “that’s the drink closest to Tech” says Chitiz. What a mastermind!
Unfavorable circumstances- blessings in disguise
During his late teens, Chitiz’s family had to go through a wretched event of burglary of his father’s jewelry shop which reduced the family to penury. The family had zero amount of savings and was left with no clue about the future. This situation caught them off guard. It was during these times, Chitiz and his mother came up with an idea of teaching which he continued for almost seven years till the time he graduated from his B. Tech college. Being an engineering student, Chitiz got the liberty to train students for their IIT-JEE exams. Managing a schedule was not easy for Chitiz, however, this uncalled situation helped him learn about the uncertainty that life could throw at one. Chitiz says, “it shaped me into who I am today”
Boss vs Leader
Chitiz talks about the difference between a boss and a leader. He says, “A boss gives you commands while a leader sets examples” The CEO also talks about the importance of being close to the team members and caring about their well-being. Being the leader that he is, he has given free educational training to thousands of people in the area of salesforce.
