The world may be pretty big in the geographical sense, but it has certainly been made smaller with the advent of technology. One way of connecting individuals through technology is the use of art and culture, both of which have been richly developed in India. Since Indians today are living all over the world, their art and culture has spread far and wide too. You can always take the Indian away from his own art and culture, but you cannot remove the art and culture from the Indian.
Over time, a new challenge has emerged, which is to provide opportunities at the international level for every Indian talent living in any part of the world, as per the desired category of talent and passion. Gee Vision Inc (further referred to as Gee) took this challenge and decided to build a global 3iii platform where anyone familiar with any type of any Indian talent can showcase his/her talent without any restrictions.
