Available in limited edition, meet Deepak, Ajay, Nalin, Arvind and Shailendra—the handymen-husbands. Accomplished professionals and self-taught Mr Fixits on the side. With a blithe allegiance to the DIY credo, these busybodies love indulging in home repair and improvements.

They’re the only plumbers you can holler for when the showerhead clogs and you’ve got soap in your eyes. The after-hours tailors you can trust to tweak extra-revealing necklines. And the only grease monkeys who won’t cheat you on motor spares while ducking under a troubled chassis. From blueprints to rust-free upkeep, their projects don’t need desktop computing or pivoting office chairs. It’s all just applied physics, i.e. "work equals force into distance".
