What's The Puri ?

“Paani Puri!? Clothing? A Clothing Company!? Really?!? That’s crazy! silly! and even goofy!

YUP! that is the same reaction we've received every single day since 5:30am on April 20,2009. 5:30am!?!

WHAT?? Yes, at 5:30am Rish Oberoi was watching Batman-The Dark Knight, but could only think to himself, "how amazing would Paani Puri be right now?“

While sitting there in a daze, hoping to somehow find Paani Puri around his house, he began to think how funny, no, how CRAZY!! it would be if “The Joker” was eating Paani Puri!!!

This thought stuck in his mind, and that very same day he went through his phone book to call anyone who could create this image … And

He found her! Wait Wait, before we go on, our designer is actually called EUREKA! (this is the most serious part of the story and not a joke….).

That’s how Paani Puri started; simply "a joke made into a reality."

Welcome to the Crazy World of Paani Puri Clothing !

pani-puri Pani Puri (pronounced ‘pah-ni poo-ree’) or Golgappa ('pronounced ‘goal-gup-pa) is a popular street snack for most Indians.  It’s basically a  round, hollow "puri", fried crisp and filled with a watery mixture of tamarind, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and chickpeas.  It is bite size and enough to pop in the mouth (unless you have a REALLY small mouth!).
