“India, unfortunately, has become a copycat story.Good Life Company 1 Entrepreneurs take an idea that has worked elsewhere and ‘Indianise’ it, be it Flipkart, Snapdeal or Ola. We are not innovative.

The company recently launched its e-commerce website where consumers can buy the entire product range.
