You would be thinking like, that's a big title, and what is it anyway..? Well, that's a debut novel from a 26 years old Varun Agarwal. Yes, You heard that right. This young man is a Co-founder of a Tee-shirt merchandising company named "Alma Mater". The book is about his journey as an entrepreneur and how he created his own company by his innovative ideas and marketing concepts. Actually I haven't completed the whole book yet, But I gotta say man, This book can be a gold mine for entrepreneurs.
This true story is set in bangalore. Varun is 20-something, who has completed his engineering 1 year ago and is best in doing nothing as he don't want to join the path which is taken by most of the people in bangalore- Being a slave of MNCs. He want to do something different, and Anu aunty- His mother's good friend is a big barricade to go through that path. Though he does not cow down and start implementing his idea of business with his friend Mal. And then starts his journey as a young businessman.
I agree that the book is more of a time pass than a life changing material, but it has potential to make you think about our mentality on enthusiastic youngsters who want to start their own business and how we are being a setback to their fresh ideas. And the matter here is not only entrepreneurship. Its about dreaming big and pursuing those dreams.
The reason I am asking you to read this book is the advices that are given by author in between the pages, as they are the essence of his own experiences. I don't have to say much as the book has been on the bestseller list since it was published. Well, there are numerous dialogues which are objectionable but we have to agree, that F-words are common now...!
"How I braved..." is colored with Passion, Dreams, Friendship, Love, and Family bonding. Sometimes it makes you emotional and most of the time, makes you laugh. The humor is a primary key here. I am trying to complete it as fast as I can. Try it and give your views in the comments bellow.
NOTE: The book is suggested only for adults because of the use of abusive language.
