The strange and amazing (Facebook) life of Rahul Yadav
From being called the 'bad boy of Indian startups' to making fun of Housing's board members on his Facebook, Rahul Yadav has done it all.
To say that Rahul Yadav's behavior has been eccentric in the past few month would be an understatement. The former CEO of Housing.com went from lite banter to raging a storm in the industry.
From being called the 'bad boy of Indian startups' to making fun of Housing's board members on his Facebook, he has done it all.
A (supposedly) fan of the Avengers, Yadav never misses an opportunity to post his thoughts on Facebook.
Here is the timeline of his shenanigans, courtesy Facebook.
- It all started in May when Yadav posted this seemingly harmless message on Facebook.
- But it soon followed by this image. Something was brewing up.
- Early disagreements form the board?
- On 13 May, Yadav allotted all of his personal shares worth approximately Rs.150 crore-Rs.200 crore to all 2,251 employees of the company. The next day he 'challenged' Deepinder Goyal of Zomato and Bhavish Aggarwal to do the same.
- Taking shot at the VC on Facebook? Perhaps not the best of long term strategies.
- Another one for Goyal. Pretty harmless and funny too.
- After the Times group criticized the man for misguiding the journalists and spreading rumors.
- Things were about to escalate to a whole new level.
- Yadav's annoyance with the media grew by the day.
- If there ever was a thing called vanity.
- But the Housing board had had enough and called an meeting to discuss Yadav's future. Yadav maintained his cool. Very cool.
- And, he was fired. But within hours, he updated his Facebook.
- Yadav could have really used some optimism at this point.
- Some insights into how the meeting went.
- Oh, well. We assume that he was sad and not planning a comeback.
- Or maybe he was!
- And just days after his exit, the Housing website was hacked. Many pointed out that this might be an insider job, that Yadav had a hand in it. But Rahul denied the allegations and even gave a reason why he didn't do it.
- Perhaps thinking about his house while he was having a board meeting might have helped.
- And on Wednesday, Yadav seem to have already moved on.
