Just because he is not the alumnus of IIT or IIM institutes founder & CEO Taksh Gupta is trolled by netizens.
Today’s world is known for unusual start-up ideas, one of them is IITIIM Shaadi.com. the concept of this matrimonial website is that only graduates from these top colleges can make their profiles on this website and meet one another. The website is being called “elitist” and offensive by people for its unusual concept.
However, more than the website, the platform’s founder and CEO Taksh Gupta is being trolled by netizens. The reason is actually pretty hilarious. The man who created a matrimonial website for all graduates of the top tier Indian institutions isn’t an alumnus of either one himself. You read that right! The man is not an alumnus of IIT or IIM.
The surprising fact is that he is at a top position of a company that match makes for IIT, IIM alumni, while himself not being in the club. As soon as netizens figured this out, meme fest and trolls began on social media.
It was Twitter user @verysanskarii who kindled this conversation after trying to know the people behind the matrimonial platform. He wrote, “I stalked all of their employees on Linkedin, even none of their employees are from IIT and IIM xD”
To the unversed, though the name goes with just ‘IITs, IIM’, the platform also invites registration from alumni of top few Indian and Global Institutions (Management, Engineering, Architecture, Medicine, Mass Communication, CA/CS/ICWA/CFA, Fashion Design & many more. However, it isn’t anything entirely objectionable for a non-IITian coming up with a service for the mentioned group, yet the users of the micro-blogging site have found it weird.
