“Grace: What is the company name going to be?

Bhaskar: Crayon as in Crayons children use to colour.
Grace: Sounds like the name of a school for kids.
Bhaskar: Yes, that is what we are looking for.
Grace: But why Crayon?
Bhaskar: Because, we are back to basic and data is colorful.

Till this day, I don’t know if they did tell me the real reason behind the name Crayon!”
