OUR STORY



serendipity (NOUN) \ˌser-ən-ˈdi-pə-tē\[mass noun]
      :the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
      ‘a fortunate stroke of serendipity’




An ancient Persian fairy tale, once told the story of three fortuitous Princes from the far-east land of Serendip, who travelled the world together and
stumbled upon a great many wonders.
Derived from the Persian word Sarândip (پیسرند), it originated from the
Sanskrit word, ‘Suvarnadweepa’, which translates to ‘Golden Island’.
Sri Lanka, so the story goes, was named Serendip on account of this tale of fortunate happenstance. As for the word ‘serendipity’, it originates from the fictitious adventures of the princes, in which they discover something new and wonderful, without ever meaning to.
