      Here's Something Interesting

      Gillette is perhaps the most popular men�s grooming brand in India and Bangladesh, but when the U.S. based parent company initially launched the product, the results weren�t great�

      Executives then flew to India to figure out what�s wrong. To their surprise, they realized that many people did not have access to fancy mirrors - some did not even have running water! So they went back to the drawing board, re-designed the razor to take out rubber pads, extra blades and make the product more affordable overall.

      Voila, the rest is history -- a decade later, they were selling 2 out of 3 razors bought in the region!
