Founder, Sunday Soul Sante
It doesn’t matter how often you’re knocked down; success comes to those who get up and fight again. Asha Rao, may have witnessed a few defeats, but her passion for fabric and arts ensured that she constantly strived to regenerate her idea.
Her reward: the success of her venture Soul Sante, a flea market that is held in Bangalore five times a year. The name is an acknowledgment of your day off and keeping it sacred, spending it well with some quality family time and some food for your soul. The Sante is the result of Asha Rao’s foresight. “It is a 15-year-old story. I saw the need for a creative market in Bangalore. There are so many talented young people who were struggling. Before you ‘arrive’ you need someone to hold your hand.”
