Being the son of a Diplomat in the Foreign Service- R Khubchand- also known as "Mony"- started travelling around extensively from the age of 5 and then after schooling here, went back to Europe- for further studies
However, the desire to come home was strong and he returned to India in the seventies- just at the time the country was going through a lot of challenges.
After serving in different organizations- but wanting to implement the work culture he was used to, decided to do something on his own
He started INDUS VALLEY- in 1983- a Buying Office for Exports with his late wife Monica & followed this up with Greenfields in 1996 - his son Rahul and daugher Raleena being active partners. In this course of these 30 years- are now representing Companies in six continents for their purchase of giftware/furniture/home textiles/fashion accessories/garments amongst others from here - see www.indusvalley-world.com.
For his outstanding contribution to the promotion of Handicrafts exports,Mony was awarded the Life- time Achievement Award- by the Government of India
Monica,meanwhile, in her own setup Chrysalis moved into Spiritualism, Art of Living, meditation, healing as well many other charitable/good causes and used the apartment for teaching too
So, after she passed away in 2004 and we decided to use her place as a Bed & Breakfast - what better name to go in for than "BnB Chrysalis".
The project which started late 2008 - family pictures from around that time - is looking to bring together people from different parts of the world - whether on work or pleasure - wanting to stay in a clean/comfortable/homely/safe/affordable place when in Delhi.
We hope to welcome you here too
