The book that has made an impact on me


‘Dare to dream – A life of Rai Bahadur M S Oberoi’ by Bachi Karkaria. The book traces the life of a simple lower middle class man, who rises to be one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all times. It’s a fairy tale romance from the world of business. I will definitely recommend this book to everyone. It has an important message for all readers. Dreaming is not enough. If you want to achieve something in life, go after it with all your focus and as if your life depends on it. Success will be waiting for you, just around the corner.

One fictional character I would like to meet…

Swami from R K Narayanan’s Swami and his friends / Malgudi days. It just shows that to enjoy life, one needs no riches, no fortune. All one needs is an attitude to enjoy life and be happy with what one can do with the resources in his or her control.

Ravi Subramanian is the author of ‘The Incredible Banker’. He recently won the Economist Crossword

Popular Award adjudged by book lovers across India.

As told to Manasi Y Mastakar.
