Hari reallocated himself to work as a”Project Head at Verdure Books” and took up the challenging task of building the Publication company both online and offline and enjoyed meeting the challenge with a great &enviable victory. Hari having found his goal, broadened his horizon and decided to create jobs, instead of hunting for one.

Thus the”Best Business Idea Award” was awarded by DARE magazine in the year 2009, to Hari in recognition of his values&accomplishments!
