Peanuts, Sticks Or Satay
Kaustubh Patwardhan, Director I Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, Ashnik
Just near to our office, there is famous Lau Pa Sat Hawker centre and just besides that there is narrow lane called “Satay Lane”. In the evening, the lane is full of foodies and buzzes with street-hawkers selling variety of Satay – the local South East Asian delicacy. The charcoal smoke fills the air, and the distinct fragrance of the lemongrass, peanut sauce and the spices add to it. The tender Satays once in mouth give you a nice explosion of spices. Overall it is an epitome of Satay eating experience. Are these hawkers just selling Satay to you? No, they are selling the ultimate sensory Satay experience. And that’s what matters.
Why I am mentioning above experience of Satay in my article? Very often I do hear the question in my intro meeting with customers, potential partners – “So what business is Ashnik in?” To which, my answer is we are into business of delighting of our customers through our comprehensive solutions approach – A complete sensory experience of our in-depth consulting, expert advice, delivery skills and support for your Business problems related to IT .
