JOURNEY OF TWO FRIENDS
The story began in the late 80's, when they met for the first time. Krishna Rao Akula was the charming all-rounder with his impish ways. Diametrically opposite was Vijay Dupati, the new kid on the block with his calm and composed demeanor. However soon enough it was Vijay who garnered all the attention when he topped the next test.
Friendship is born at the moment when one man says to another,"What! You too? I thought no one but myself..." - Lewis
Krishna and Vijay's friendship was born when the former noticed that the latter was early to class just like himself. Slowly they began talking and became friends. They started enjoying each other's company and spent a lot of time together discovering their common passion for cricket. They became so close that they could remember each other's birthdays! Boys did not make a big deal out of birthdays where they studied.
Time passed and the day came where they had to make the life altering decision. Coincidentally both chose engineering but fate took them on two separate paths. Vijay went abroad for further studies whereas Krishna took the bold step of teaching and guiding students preparing for IIT-JEE.
Cut to 2011. Krishna conceived the idea of starting his own venture i.e, Learnpedia which was his dream and aspiration. Vijay, meanwhile, was settled in a plush role in a top company in USA. One fine day, he got a call from his old buddy, Krishna who shared his excitement about starting his own company. It didn't take much convincing from Krishna's end. Vijay wrapped up his assignment, sorted out all that he had to, and moved to Hyderabad, lock, stock and barrel to take over as the Co-Founder and COO of Learnpedia. The company, thus born, is fundamentally rooted in friendship and the air of mirth and trust extends across the organisation.
