My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another book on entrepreneurs. Covers a gamut of varieties from Bindeshwar Phatak who started the Sulabh Sauchalay to Shreesh Jadhav an IIT graduate who gave it all up and joined Belur Mutt as a Sanyasi and runs their educational arm.

In between the likes of Shaheen Mistry who runs the Akansha Foundation which teaches the under privileged in Mumbai and Arvind Kejriwal’s Parivartan which gives an idea of how this man discovered and used RTI to benefit the common man and why he is so popular in Delhi.

There are some real eye openers like the one about Dinabandhu Sahoo who helps the fishermen in Orissa harvest seaweed in Chilika lake and earn a livelihood without destroying the ecosystem.

A very inspirational one is Dhruv Lakra who runs Mirakle Courier completely manned by deaf and dumb. Really a miracle.

And we have Madhu Pandit Dasa who runs Akshaya Patra feeding hundreds of thousands students midday meals in and around Bangalore from Bangalore ISKCON.

On the whole an eminently must read book to understand what different people in India are achieving and what drives them.
