When Avendus co-founder’s teen daughter conducted a session on cyber-bullying!

At a TiE event on ‘Technology: Its misuse and impact on health and public policy’, entrepreneurs, tech professionals and management school pupils were in attendance to hear a Class 12 student make a spirited presentation on the menace of cyber-bullying. The young girl was Ananya Vohra, daughter of Ranu Vohra, co-founder of financial services firm, Avendus.

So he let that go and opened up a new account. After a while, that one too was hacked. And when the same happened on his third attempt, the doctor decided to ditch social media – never to get back there again.

Meanwhile, an unknown crafty person opened a fresh Facebook account under the names of
