Ever wondered what it takes to make it big in life? A bit of inspiration, zeal to not drift away, the magic potion of immense hard work and of course some incredible courage.
The hardships, too, go a long way in defining who we choose to become. No wonder Ruskin Bond did odd jobs to fuel his passion for writing; Captain Gopinath hadn’t worn shoes till he was a teenager; Johnny Lever earned his first rupee by grinding chutney at a dhaba; Sridhar Vembu, CEO of networking firm Zoho, longed for space in a small house; choreographer Remo D’Souza often dreamed big even when he washed dishes, and Jyothi Reddy, CEO of IT company Key Software Solutions, dreamed of flying even when she worked for Rs 5 a day as a daily labourer.
Prachi Raturi Misra, in her book, ‘I Did It -Exceptional stories of people who made it large’, jots down the struggle stories of 18 people from humble backgrounds who achieved success in life through grit and hard work. The book has been published by Times Group Books, the publishing division of The Times of India Group.
