It did not even last five minutes. I was called in and told that I have been fired. I was then asked to leave so that the meeting could continue. Within two minutes my email id was deactivated and I can t access it since. Many things were linked with that email id. My diet plan, my upcoming meetings, my contacts that I made over the last two years, many powerful plans that I had made to pitch to the government of India, lots of User Interface that I had designed, and a long list of ideas received till date from all the consumers/employees. It s all gone.
He even gave the publication an update on his girlfriend-finding mission. Yes, there is one girl. Usse meri chatting ho rahi hai. (We are chatting) She also messaged me on Facebook and I liked her so we are chatting. That s it.
In the interview, Yadav also confirmed that it was Housing.com’s internal tech team that had hacked the website. It was nothing, just these guys from our tech team who did it, he said.
Yadav claims that he is working on a new venture and plans to announce it by the end of next month. He was booted out from his own company by investors after he managed to earn quite a reputation for being involved in quite a few public spats with industry colleagues, the media and even the investors and board of directors of his own company.
