Rashmi Bansal - Mumbai, February Until I was 17 years old I got everything I ever wanted as a student — effortlessly. I topped my school board examinations. Won the National Talent Search scholarship.
Numerous prizes and shields in quizzing. But when I was 17, I applied to four US universities. I felt crushed. No luck. Finally, I enrolled in Sophia College for a BA in Economics and funnily enough, these three years turned out to be some of the best of my life. I grew, I excelled, I became independent and confident. Editor of the college magazine, student council member, inter—collegiate festival circuit.
From nerd I became a pataka of sorts. The plan God had for me was something different. And in the end it all worked out, it was perfect. I connected the dots. The truth is, there is a plan. A bigger plan. A chance encounter. A stray conversation. An article you read which somehow stays with you. These are the unexpected turns on the journey of life. So go out there and do more, learn more, experience more.
Create lots and lots of dots on the canvas of your life. Paint boldly and brightly — the colours of your choice. Create a life which is like a work of art.
A thing of beauty, a source of joy, an expression of your heart. Each of the stories in this book is about people who have done that. People who took a leap of faith, dot by simple dot. An average student in school, he fell in love with Physics late in life and turned it into a profitable business.
Today, he runs Su-kam, a T crore company in the field of Power Electronics. Over the next 27 years, the home-grown skincare company held its own against large multinationals, only recently selling out to Dabur. But his knowledge of cost-accounting was equally handy in the kitchen. Today, N Mahadevan runs a food empire stretching across cuisines and continents. Today, he runs the T crore Bharat Vikas Group BVG , a facilities-management firm which not only has the cream of corporate clients, but maintains Rashtrapati Bhavan.
He joined advertising, but hated the hierarchy. Ultimately, he became his own boss with Tantra - a company which prints wacky and uniquely Indian t-shirts. Suresh Kamath believes that social responsibility and sound business can go hand in hand - and his company is living proof of it.
Cashurdrive is based on a simple idea which required no capital, no office, no fancy technology. His story shows that experience is over-rated - there is no better time to start, than now. Something which is different, ahead of its time. These ventures are about making that dream, a living reality. These two idealistic young men are putting their grey cells to use, providing research and consulting services exclusively for politicians.
In doing so, he has found a mission of life and brought benefits to thousands of marginalised farmers. Right after college, Sunil went to Belgium, where he learnt all about making cheese.
Today, Reva is not only producing such vehicles but licensing its technology to the likes of General Motors. So, she ended up starting a business in handmade paper. Along the way she discovered many interesting things, including an unexpected use for elephant dung.
But when life threw up a challenge, he decided to face it head-on. When that talent is unique, the platform must be created. But one fine day he quit it to pursue his passion - wildlife photography.
