The book starts off the famous story of Prem
Ganapathy, Founder of Dosa Plaza. The book then
moves on to back-to-back biggies like Kunwer
Sachdev(Su-Kam), Ganesh Ram(Veta), Sunita (Fem
Care) and many more. All of these stories are
gripping and an absolute delight to read.
And this book is covering all the things from book
store chains, agriculture, dairy, software products and
what not! One surprise was introducing stories of
entrepreneurs in the field of design & arts towards
the end of the book.
I think its one time reading book because I think If anyone read the book with
concentration than he/she wil know that hardwork is the only key to success.
And after reading the 10-12 stories we can see that theres no more diffrence
in the stories. Because as per above Hard work is the only key t success and
theres nothing expect that in their lives.
Most people start with a failure early in the venture but persistence does pay.
But if anyone have passion for something than he/she becomes successful
theres no dought in that…
