Come Together, Right Now
India is in a dire situation. We were all hopeful sometime ago, with situation normalizing and vaccines in the offing. But things have turned from bad to worse. The diamond industry will be put to test again, and considering India produces the most number of polished diamonds, the whole supply chain is bound to be hit.

But just this moment, we should take a moment to pray for our near and dear ones, our employees and the whole country – hoping we come back from this hale and hearty. It is not important to scale and grow, but just survive.

It is important we stick together in a crisis and support one and other, show empathy and compassion. The industry needs this now more than ever!
