What does a regular 16year-old girl do? Well, an image of a happy-go-lucky youngster living life to the fullest is what comes to mind instantly. However, Aishwarya Bhende (her mum Manju Chellaramani lends her the Sindhi roots!) set up her first company ‘Amnesia’ at that very age.
She discovered both her love for business studies and her phobia of numbers while attending the Bombay International School. “Mathematics was my biggest weakness and I was exempted from it in grade 8. I never imagined I’d take up something as challenging as business, accountancy, or anything related to math ever again,” she shares candidly.

Under Amnesia, we started hosting events at 5-star properties in the city.”
