Akshaya Tritiya – The Harbinger of Prosperity!

Akshaya Tritiya is one of the holiest festival celebrated by Hindus and Jains. It falls on the third Tithi (lunar day) of Shukla Paksha of the Indian month of Vaishakha. It marks the birthday of Parshurama, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu and the day when Ved Vyasa started to write Mahabharata. Akshaya Tritiya is considered super auspicious for starting any kind of new venture / business and it is believed that any venture initiated today grows big and brings prosperity!

A year ago, Askmonk launched its initial Android app’s closed beta. Though officially launched around August 2016, Askmonk now has over 20,000 happy consumers from across India and is touted as one of the rising tech-startups facilitating online astrology. Today we are extremely excited to softly launch our first beta version of Webapp-Widget for posting questions through web on the go!

Here is the link: http://web.askmonk.in 🙂

#PitchOffSeasonIV, Jaipur

Happy to share that Askmonk was among the top 30 startups selected across India from over 2000 applicants for the Tech Portal’s Pitchoff Season VI in Jaipur featuring India’s top investors and stars from TVF -Arunabh Kumar and Sumeet Vyas! 🙂

With our kiosk installed at the majestic Birla Auditorium, most of the delegates and investors were curious to know about the niche market of astrology. People were quite surprised by our stats and how we are making astrology accessible to everyone. With the session of sharing business cards to connecting with potential investors, Pitchoff was an amazing experience.

Here are some moments:

Expect the unexpected

Only a few minutes ago I was reading an article on the founder of Art of Living, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar by Alok Kejriwal that said:

“Sometimes, the Universe grants you what you want, almost instantly!”

How very true! Every word of this line is super important. And it happened to us today!

In a few days Donald Trump is going to be the president of the free world – ala, United States of America. We all understand how important this event is going to be along the timeline of our civilization. The whole world is watching, both anxious about and excited for, the new incoming president.

A perfect setting for our astrologer think-tank to do a kundali.

This seemed like a great opportunity for Askmonk to sit together — developers, designers, editors and of course astrologers to come up with a viral kundali on Donald Trump. It must be unique we thought.

A unique presentation of his kundali (our first ever) along with a hardcore synopsis of what his stars have to say, his influences and impact on socio-economic relationship between India  and US — sounded like goosebumps to me!

We wanted it to be cool so decided on combining technology (Nodejs & Bookiza framework) and age-old science of astrology together to produce the following ‘Askmonk’s Viral Kundali’ of Mr. Trump using only vedic principles: https://bubbl.in/book/viral-kundali-donald-trump-by-askmonk/1

Once it was ready we shared it in our friend circle, both in India and the US and thus started a social loop we could have only dreamed for. We ended up on the front page of The Economic Times today, and I’m only deeply touched and euphoric to confirm that:
