  • Himanshu Arora


    Every badass group of mafias needs a leader, and Himanshu Arora is Social Panga’s resident Optimus Prime. Going by the time he spends on the phone or on mails, if “selling” were a woman, then these two would be in a happily-ever-after relationship.

    He has 8+ years of online marketing experience and is one of the few chosen Google Product & Sales Partners. During his (extremely short) breaks, he likes to enjoy his Tea “Shot” and “Parle-G”.

  • Gaurav Arora


    He dons so many hats through the day that it’s a little surprising when you find that he doesn’t have 10 heads and 20 arms. He is the energy centre of the office who curates the most insane ideas and pushes everybody to unleash their potential.

    He dreams to go Backpacking across the globe for 30 days and meeting his friends. His high point in life was when somebody referred to him as the Wikipedia of Bollywood Movies. Being disruptive is in his blood, and people used to call him Napster during his college days.

    Weapons: Work! It does all his shootings.

    Just your friendly neighborhood HR. Nature lover, tree hugger, coffee addict. When I’m not working, I’m either out cycling or watching cycling videos or just dreaming about cycling.

    A graphic designer by profession, story teller by nature and a content creator by choice. He believes that creativity is like energy, it can’t be created nor destroyed, it can only be transferred. Whatever we can think of nature has already done it, way better than we can ever pull off. The only way to master creativity is to keep observing and getting inspired.

    With this philosophy, he is usually the quietest one in the meetings but has so many things to say during chai breaks. A movie fanatic, that naturally makes hijm ‘the storyteller’.

  • Pushpa Aunty

    Kitchen & Health Doctor

    The mafia without whom Social Panga’s office operations would come to a screeching halt would be none other than our very own Pushpa Aunty. Having been a part of Social Panga since its inception, she is the heartbeat of our office fam!

    Never seen without a smile on her face and a vivacious greeting, Pushpa Aunty is our go – to for any non work emergency, from hunger to headache. She is the prime advisory for our health (more than we are, tbh),

    because of which we try to eat our meals on time and fill our water bottles, lest we get in trouble for not taking care of ourselves.
