With the motto of ‘yielding prosperity’, HPM is a Delhi based, dynamic agro-chemicals based industry that doesn’t only focus on ensuring self reliance in productivity but also has made incessant efforts to incorporate innovative practices in their daily processes.

Being one of the many independent musicians based in New Delhi, Gagan has faced myriad of problems, the biggest one being: getting an audience.
