All of you who regularly visit this blog, own a piece of me.
I must thank you for your engagement, your endorsements and critique.
As we start a new year, here is something that you will feel happy to look at: it is the reading of The Professional at the launch of the book in the hands of Mr. Ratan Tata in Mumbai. In this video, you can listen to me read from the first and the last chapter of the book.
While The Professional, within weeks of its release, has sold out its first edition and seems to have touched many people, I am really excited about another book as we begin the new year.
It is Simply Fly by my friend Captain Gorur Gopinath and it is due to be launched on January 15th at Bangalore. Gopi had asked me to read the manuscript and I was spellbound with his scholarship, storytelling and the entrepreneurship lessons woven into poetic prose.
I believe his book should go to every home in the Indian sub-continent where a child is being raised. So, do look out for Gopi’s book. I can assure you that you have not read anything quite like it from an Indian entrepreneur so far and it will make you think, admire, laugh and sometimes wonder, why does it have to be so difficult to build businesses in countries like ours?
After all, entrepreneurs are nation-builders too!
