An individual wrote, "Getting into software is way easier than getting into the Lehenga business in any serious way."

A second commented, "It’s that season sir." To this, the Jaglan replied by saying, "I'm sure, but listen to this. A 40-50 sq. ft. shop here goes for ~8cr and a 400 sq. ft. showroom with 3 floors is around 80-90 cr. If you can get someone to sell. Digest that!"

A third posted, "If it’s that lucrative, why aren’t you getting off Twitter and selling it?"

A fourth said, "Some of the responses are so inane. Yes, I agree with you that the consumption in India is under-estimated. Similarly, while everyone is focused on IPOs and exits, tons of opportunities to make millions the old-fashioned way. But, these old-fashioned businesses work on the family."
