The Ouroboros is dead.

The Ouroboros is an ancient mythical symbol of a snake eating its own tail. It’s often taken to symbolise the eternal cycle, especially in the sense of something constantly destroying and re-creating itself. It also represents the infinite cycle of nature’s endless creation and destruction; life and death.

As we had written earlier, Tapzo, self-billed as “India’s first all in one app”, is the one Indian startup that epitomises the Ouroboros—displaying a constant, incessant urge to reinvent itself, pivoting from one avatar to another inconditely.
