SaleBhai - Native Specialities At Your Doorstep.

Ever wondered if you could get the taste of your native sweet or the required ingredients for performing a specific puja, right at your doorstep? 
Salebhai will do it for you!!





What does it do?

Started in September 2015, with its headquarters in Ahemdabad, the SaleBhai team brings together specialities from across the country , say sandesh from Kolkata to the famous chiwadas from Gujarat or the dry fruits from Kashmir to the Mysore paks from Karnataka , right at your doorstep. 


So how did the idea of SaleBhai strike?

 As most of them grew up away from their native places with parents having transferable jobs, they could only visit their native places during the vacations. This was the time where they got connected to their roots and discovered unique things about their homeland: its festivities, traditions, food, customs etc. This sets a taste of the native place forever and they missed those specialities in the other cities and towns. This longing gave rise to - SaleBhai, a niche e-commerce platform that seeks to fulfill the needs of the diaspora in India and abroad. They currently sell sweets, namkeen, chocolates, bakery, spices, dry fruits, beverages, pickles, handicrafts, paintings, handlooms, herbal products and wellness items - sourced from 100 plus cities. They have 150 reputed sellers from across the country. In order to respect and help the people continue their rituals and cultures, they sell puja packets for different occassions like Laxmi puja , Ganesh puja or Durga puja , with complete details about the products- their purposes and importance and how to use the items and perform the puja along with their respective prayers. Their delivery is time is around 48 hours.


Their logo is a dog. What's the inspiration behind this?


Well, when thewowstory had asked them the inspiration behind it, Purba Kalita, co-founder at the SaleBhai says "Our logo is inspired by a dog, which stands for trust and loyalty. The dog follows where you go ; likewise we follow our customers, their dreams , their wishes so we can fulfill all their heart's desires." The idea is to deliver "sev from Ratlam" and not "Ratlami sev".
