About Unicorn Poppers

6Hi I am Richie and I am a qualitative market researcher turned unicorn blogger ;). You must be wondering ‘what she does?’! Hehe!

So in a simpler way, I research about people’s life and understand what are their needs and wants when it comes to living a better and easy going life. We (the qualitative market researchers) tell people’s living situations, habits, behaviors and their inclination for having a better product to different companies that hire us, so that they can design and make different products that will help people to live a better life! Ah!

Yes! You are right! I am in a way the creator of the world – who glows in the dark… 😉

Well! On a serious note, I am writing this blog to share experiences, preserve age old wisdom and get rid of the myths related to motherhood in India. When I popped a unicorn myself in 2016, I realized that there is so much of knowledge about day to day living that is sitting with our mothers, grandmothers, aunts and Indian doctors, which is not being known to us and is being washed away. I wanted to gather all these small snippets of wisdom to preserve it so that you as well as my daughter Nirvair Kour could benefit from it. One fine day 😉 !

Like I said, I am trained in understanding people’s life, needs and behavior, I am taking this professional experience forward to bring to you a go to guide for motherhood in Indian way from the experiences of our old wives and supporting the facts from Indian doctors from the different fields.

The articles on www.poppingunicorns.com are specially curated after a detailed research conducted with mothers, grandmothers, aunts and a panel of doctors. Duplication of the content is strictly prohibited. Also, if you are interested to talk to me about product ideation / product reviews please contact me at thepoppingunicrons@gmail.com – please do not draw any product assumptions from my articles ;).

Our product reviews would be a true product review without any biases from my profession and trust me our product review would be beyond ‘just good product’!

Enjoy reading and popping unicorns 🙂
