The struggles, the challenges, the accomplishments, and even notoriously funny moments in their lives, have been captured in an effective and humorous way which no doubt, makes for an engaging read. The authors have also borrowed heavily from the saying as old as time itself: “A failure is all but a stepping stone to success!” They want this message to ring with deafening clamour, in the ears of the youth of our country. They want to make it resoundingly clear that, failure is not the end of the road. Not at all. To the contrary, it is the first stop you are going to make on your journey towards success. They have brought out this very simple fact, as they tell a story of how one with steely determination, and a dream which soars to new heights, can do the unthinkable, and overcome all odds, in order to reap the fruit of success.
It also hopes to shatter the prevailing notion in our country that only Ivy League or IIM qualified people can create successful new age businesses, and also showcases the existing ecosystem in our country comprising of Venture capitalists, mentors and organizations boosting entrepreneurship. In the author’s very own words the books tries to tell the “tale of the journey from ordinary to extraordinary”. The fact that the author duo are vastly experienced in fields relating to entrepreneurship greatly helps too!
