Children Who Made It Big
Children Who Made It Big
Description
Preface

The great achievers who feature in this book were all once normal young people, who had dreams and aspirations, joys and sorrows, doubts and questions – like every young reader of this book,. Every one of them has had a turning point in his or her life which set them towards their respective careers or influenced their personalities. They learnt from their experiences and grew up into individuals who have made a mark in their respective field, be it science, industry, arts, social work, judiciary or films. These are some of the Achievers of the post-independence era.

The aim of this book is to bring out the fact, that greatness, for the most part, is achieved through determination and perseverance and that it is possible for anyone to scale great heights provided one has these two qualities.

The stories in this collection are all based on personal interviews, during which the personalities let me have a glimpse of their childhood. The incidents are all true. However, with their due permission dialogues and situations were created to make the stories more lively. I thank them all for kindly going through their respective stories and giving their comments which has added to the worthy of the book.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
