Housing.com CEO Rahul Yadav who has been making waves on social media does not seem to be done yet. The 26-year-old CEO of the online real estate start-up who seems to be making it a habit to make headlines will now be part of an AMA session on social networking site Reddit - where users can ask him 'anything'.
"Rahul Yadav has agreed for an AMA session with us. He's been in the headlines quite a lot recently, and has even been coined as the "monk who sold his Ferrari" by a few media outlets. So get your questions ready and let's have an interesting AMA here on /r/india," Reddit announced on Saturday. The session will be held on Tuesday, May 19 at 6 p.m.
AMA or 'Ask me anything' is one of the most popular features of Reddit.com, where an individual opens up for an interaction with the users. In this session the users can ask questions, comment on the answers and rate questions which they want to be answered most by the interviewee.
Mr Yadav, a final-year dropout from IIT-Bombay has generated a fair share of controversy over the last couple of months. In April, he attacked the board of Housing.com in his resignation letter, but days later apologized and withdrew his resignation in a dramatic U-turn.

Last week, hours after he allotted his personal equity worth Rs 150 crore to Rs 200 crore to Housing.com employees, Mr Yadav tagged two fellow IITians (Deepinder Goyal of Zomato and Bhavish Aggarwal of Olacabs) in a Facebook post, challenging them to follow his "noble" act.
"Now I challenge Deepinder Goyal of Zomato and Bhavish Aggarwal of Olacabs to continue this noble act and give away HALF (not full) OF THEIR SHARES to their employees. And I hope both of them spread the nominations further," Mr Yadav wrote on his Facebook page tagging the two entrepreneurs.
