Haresh, I’ve always wondered how many engineers it takes to change a light bulb at a Startup, especially the UberX types who have to imagine less and just do it.
I am a relatively old timer, though consider myself still fresh out of college. At @emportant (and now at stealth mode in @myremitr) we live by the philosophy that code should be beautiful, almost like poetry. And you cannot over-engineer poetry.
I think we now need a completely new definition of “lean startup” if India has to create businesses that scale and survive. If you read today’s news about IITs becoming wary of Startup job offers, you know the signs are already showing.
