let me tell you history of how & why we started this kite shop and kite flying string store? www.PatangDori.com
first of all you tell me how the name sounds to you ?
does the child in you feel good about it ?
I am very passionate about Uttarayan and kites like every Indian Boy.
I love kites & kite fighting and was mad about it. When I was also into e-commerce early on when amazon.com was selling books I also started a local eCommerce site called TheAhmedabad.com in 2005-06 but it did not take off at that time and I put the idea of eCommerce on the shelf for a while as the market was not ready for it and it was still concept only and not very popular. Concept selling is a very hard thing to do as it required behavior change from customers to make it work huge investment needs to be done which as a bootstrap venture I did not had? And I continued to study and was finishing my Btech electrical engineering like any other young Indian.
Duirng busy days of study I could not get time to prepare my Dori for Uttarayana & I bought a kite flying thread/Manja from a local shop. It actually hurt me as a kite enthusiast it was fun to buy thread and get custom-made Manja rolled on Spool from Trusted Manja makers. But still, that was ok the Manja I bought was of poor quality and short in length also. That hurts a lot to a kite enthusiast like me kid in me almost went into depression for days. Then I decided to take control and got connected with Manja makers from Bareilly UP.,
Bareilly is a town famous for its Manja makers for centuries. Explained to them my experience and purchased good quality Manja and my failed eCommerce venture (TheAhmedabad.com) experience also came in handy. The idea of starting an e-commerce store was still in my mind and I started it as an experience as kites and Thread is totally unorganized market with a lack of accountability. With the help of a freelance webdeveloper and during that time oscommerce was popular ecommerce open source code and I learn about it online and launced my website www.PatangDori.com
During first year I burned lot of money in advertising and all but since then running kite store as a hobby shop with the help of a small team.
