Our Makers

We at crow are a close-knit team that functions like a family. We relate to one another at a personal level, and share a common creative wavelength, in spite of our varying educational and socio-cultural backgrounds.

*Note: In native many Indian languages, ‘behen’ refers to ‘sister’, and ‘bhai’ refers to ‘brother’. These terms are used extensively as a means to address one’s colleagues.
