Saurabh Arora had his best poker face on during a July 2017 interview with The Ken when he said the revenues of Lybrate, the telemedicine startup he founded, were growing. The company’s financials for the year ending March 2017 hadn’t been filed yet. However, Lybrate’s revenues had grown to Rs 22.4 crore ($3.3 million) for the year ending March 2016 despite the company only being founded in 2014, so it was hard to doubt him.

At the time, we were seated in Lybrate’s plush Faridabad office, situated right next to the premises of online eyewear retailer Lenskart.
