You name he has it or he can create it for you.
Shanmugham's is an interesting story. He initially took up hard ware business. but it sunk. Next he tried his hand at textile marketing but that too collapsed. During one of his business trips to Bangalore he chanced upon an Antique shop & there he discovered a passion that was to change his life forever.
