Idli, Orchid and Will Power

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The title looked interesting and I picked this book from the library. Idli - okay, but what has orchid and will power got to do with it?

The book is an English translation of the autobiography by Vithal Venkatesh Kamat. It is about taking an idea, a dream to fruition. No matter what obstacles comes, what ever be the struggle, use them as stepping stones and move forward. The book is bubbling with his drive and energy to get things done. His presence of mind seems to have bailed him out more than once. He has also used his networking skills effectively to generate more business.

The book is not without its pitfall. The size of the book is awkward and I did not find it comfortable holding it. The language is not all that great. This could have been because of the translation from Marathi to English. There is no clear flow in the book. I felt as if I was jumping back and forth with little coherence. But those few points should not take away some of the great learnings from the book.

Interestingly this book was published by a so called "Orchid publications" and I could not find any information about this book online. I stumbled across Swaroop's post about this book and he also indicates the same. I am not sure if it is a marketing gimmick to garner attention.

Where there's a will, there's a way.
