Meet the squad
Rahul speaks very little, and when he does speak, you need to strain your ears to hear what he is saying. That said, most people do consult him on any problem they face, because he is the man with answers to pretty much everything.
Ayan is the quiet one, who works hard and smiles occasionally. He loves to take charge and solve problems, be it at work or at home. He is a technical mastermind, who built his first software product for a cable TV operator, while he was still in college!
Works for a group of black hat detectives. Has been photographing and videotaping everything that happens in office. He is Rahul's brother (really!).
Bikramjit once achieved celebrity status, after single-handedly capturing a gun-toting robber. He dislikes irresponsible people. He loves to spend his leisure time with his family. He still fears his Dad, though.
Pallab is a foodie and loves photography. In between having foods and taking pictures he loves to lead a team and try to do some programming.
Uttam is friendly, jolly and punctual. Talks to you only if you talk to him first. Likes to believe that nobody has landed on the moon till date, and that it was all an elaborate hoax.
Can easily spend the rest of his life with his computer. Always tries to make his goals in life very clear. Often plays cupid, and quite successfully, too!
Aspired to be a soldier and ended up becoming a Technical Specialist. Always fights like a one-man army against fears and obstacles, as well as negative thoughts and circumstances. Hardworking and honest about duty. He never cares for what people say or think about him. Hates rudeness.
A doting mom, movie freak and hard core Scoliodentosaurophobic (for the uninitiated: specific fear of lizards). Hates to be idle on weekends and fanatically believes that retail therapy is the best stress buster.
As a teenager, he wanted to be a movie director or a musician, because he thought they are fun jobs that could help him make lots of money. He is always willing to take a risk with learning opportunities. He feels his greatest accomplishments are always ahead of him.
Somashekara shows that age is just a number. Whether it is holding his drink or playing football he holds his own with the younger crowd. Do you need something done in the office? He is your man.
Considers himself "A guy-next-door". He talks, eats and sleeps less than most, but is trying to make up for those by going out on multiple short trips in the near future.
Martial Arts championship winner for 2 consecutive years in 2004,05. I like to do R&D about anything like cricket, new technology etc.

A big time foodie who spends are free time making sketches. Beware of criticizing SRK movies in front of this Bollywood maniac as she wouldn't think twice about killing you on that note.
An absolute beach freak – he is always up for random trips to sea beaches though he can't swim and is allergic to sunlight. An absolute foodie who loves meeting new people and exploring new cultures - and by "culture" he generally means "food."
Believes he is a snake charmer so brought a snake and then lost it in the meeting room. A fossil that looks much younger than his age. Yeah the Benjamin Button case
Souvik is another addition to our football fanatic club. He had once captained his college team, leading them to a victory in the inter-college tournament. While not exactly a cynophobe, dogs do haunt him. Might be due to the number of stitches he got after getting assaulted by one.
A biker and a dedicated bodybuilder, Dishank can also croon a merry tune or two in office parties. Always full of energy, this go-getter spreads liveliness and joy wherever he goes.
If you swear by "Har ek friend zaroori hota hai" you will love Kishan. Laid-back in attitude anytime outside office hours, Kishan can brighten up a party simply with his presence.

A gaming addict, Suvradip is fond of DOTA 2, CS 1.6, FIFA, NFS… the list goes on. If asked to describe himself the first thing that comes to his mind is Phasmophobia (fear of ghosts for the uninitiated). We are yet to find out whether he has ever encountered any of them, though.

A wordsmith and artist rolled into one, Krishanu is equally comfortable writing technical documentation and creating abstract art. He also tries his hand at a new hobby every other month.
Nakshatra discovered the source of over-abundant energy in a combination food, coffee, code, and music. The exact proportions of each are known only to him. He is also an ardent PC gamer, and booting up a new game always keeps his spirits high.
