Serendip is the old Persian name for Sri Lanka, as the Moors landed on the island called “Cheran Theevu” and mispronounced it.
Having read the Persian novel “Three Princes of Serendip”, Horace Walpole coined the term “serendipity” in 1754, as a ways to describe an “unexpected discovery”. Serendipity is a common occurrence throughout the history of product invention and scientific discovery.
Most of all, Serendip is a name chosen as much of life is dictated by the power of human spirit. The more times we step up to the plate and take a swing, the more likely we are to score.
