Gasp!!! And when asked about a little known fact about him, he generously confided that Anoushka Shankar was his latest crush and that he loves to fight with Bangalore auto-rickshaw drivers!!!
No wonder then that he developed @mohitsaini, an app that relayed the recuperation stages of his ill cousin, Mohit Saini!!! Read on to know more about this maverick developer, otherwise called Vaibhav Saini.
