Covering real-life stories of common people

 When and how did you start?

It all started in July 2016, When Me(Vijay Krishnam), Swaroop, Joy meet on social media we came up with this idea storiesofcommonman.

How did you come up with the idea? Your inspiration moment

Each one thinks different, acts different and each one has a unique passion. Grouping all of them under one word is so unfair. Isn’t it? So we decided we bring to you at least some of the people into focus through this blog. We live in a society that is so much partitioned that we do not know or care to know about each other’s world. It’s often surprising that the faces we see every day have so much to tell us about, their struggles, happiness and stories of triumph, all that could be an inspiration to some of us. And we have so much to offer each other.Let’s take a sneak peek into our neighbor’s world.
