What Technology Stack Did You Use for Launching Your Website?

Initially, we used WooCommerce on WordPress, but due to scaling and security issues, we switched to the Laravel stack with a reliable framework. We chose Bagisto, an open-source platform rooted in India.

Have you noticed any Performance Improvements After Switching to the New Platform?

Yes, we have seen significant improvements in performance compared to using WordPress and WooCommerce. The new platform Bagisto has been smoother and more scalable.

What are Your Views on Making India Self-Reliant and Technologically Independent?

I believe it is crucial for India to focus on self-reliance and technological independence. Relying on foreign platforms and companies can pose security risks and impact sovereignty. Garuda is expanding into e-commerce to encourage Indian entrepreneurship and reduce reliance on foreign companies.

What are Your Future Plans for Garuda Prakashan?

As e-commerce continues to grow, we plan to expand into different categories. We aim to provide a sophisticated user experience and incorporate technologies like AR and VR. Curation and expert guidance will also be important aspects of our future plans.
