Chasing his passion for writing, Parthip Thyagarajan started his career in media with a summer job at The Independent – a newspaper. It is here that he realised his true calling was media and he single mindedly pursued his passion. This led to a 4 year stint with the Times of India Group and then to the genesis of – India’s first Wedding Portal.
