Overview: I have a Dream

Food for entrepreneurship

Rashmi Bansal's I have a dream, is definitely a delightful read for people who have the streak of entrepreneurship in them and find themselves having unconventional and out of the box solutions for complicated problems. Her previous books Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish and Connect the Dots have been immensely successful in delivering the message of the pleasure in starting on your own. Her inspiring books have certainly made a mark on the Indian populace and led them to believe in the power of entrepreneurship. In I have a dream she continues her pursuit of discovering people who stood on their own feet and came up with their brainchild. There is nothing better than the materialization of your dream and this non fiction novel talks about just that. This compendium of 20 different stories deals with idealists as protagonists who overcame personal obstacles to emerge as Samaritans who tried to change the face of problems around them and thus contributing to the society in their own way. The book is divided into three sections namely Spiritual Capitalists, Changemakers, and the Rainmakers and beautifully describes the journey of these 20 individuals who tread the less trodden path and go on to bring a change and a smile in someone's life.

Inspire for change

In the book, you can't help but acknowledge how committed the mentioned people are to their unique causes and how they stand by the unanimous belief that management principles can be employed to bring greater good to the society. This book follows the same writing style as her previous two books but this novel is something that endows you with the feeling of doing something good for the society and helping someone living next door. Small efforts go on to bring big changes in the lives of people and this book vouches for the maxim. When was the last time when you felt inspired and felt the firm resolution to take up the gauntlet and do something for this book, I have a dream is written just to overwhelm people with the desire to do something unconventional in their lives. This book will definitely act as a revelation for most people whose world begin and end within their small, selfish selves and hardly do they care for the people wallowing in pain or troubles. The author calls the people in the book as 'social entrepreneurs' and rightly so for these people came up with ideas that guarantee a positive change as well as monetary bounties. Not only this, the book also talks about management principles and helps you see the joining line between materialistic pursuits and good intentions. This 340 page novel has a great writing style which is simple in nature and easily understandable as the genre demands. Since this book comes at a really inexpensive price you have no reason to not treat yourself with this exciting read. So go ahead and let yourself be awe inspired by the writing skills of the talented Rashmi Bansal.

    Book Review: I have a Dream: Rashmi Bansal: Big Talk Low Results

    I have a Dream - The inspiring stories of 20 social entrepreneurs who found new ways to serve old problems by Rashmi Bansal is claimed to be a collection of inspiring stories about 20 social entrepreneurs who carved out their own path through innovative initiatives to change the world in a big way, but it is more of a reporting with merely 20 articles on these 20 personalities. What I mean is not that these 20 entrepreneurs did nothing substantial to contribute to the society, but the book has not been able to deliver what it claims.

    The stories have been told as desired with lot of hidings in between the lines. The articles, what I call them, are more of subjective in nature, giving merely a broader picture with no concrete on the root level problems faced by these 20 entrepreneurs and how did they come out of it. The book I have a Dream has been divided into three major sections - Rainmakers, Changemakers and The Spiritual Capitalist. Rainmakers have been explained as those social enterprises that are revenue generating but not with the goal of merely generating profits or revenues. So the four enterprises taken in this category by Rashmi Bansal are those social organizations which opt for making profit while performing social reforms and not merely doing if for the sake of charity. There are 11 rainmakers in the book.

    Similarly Changemakers are the personal entities who go one step ahead from others in making thing happens while others keep expecting them to happen. There are 7 chnangemakers who were revolutionary to converting their and others' dreams into a reality or at least dared to. And finally there are 3 Spiritual Capitalists who still server with values, selflessness with purity of mind and heart.

    All things said and done, the enterprises and personalities chosen are definitely a showcase and legendary but the purpose goes into air the way things have been presented. Cover lacks to generate any inspiration or motivation being so simple and plain. Pages are dull and printing is too compact making it stressful to eyes. Font size is one size lesser than required for a comfortable read. Pictures of the selected personalities are so dull that are least capable of imparting any message. Style of writing too is not too impressive being too reporting sort and thus moving away from its goal or motive.

  3.  hats of to social entrepreneurs 21 November, 2013 On
    I have a dream is a bunch of social entrepreneurs who became change agents in society. The stories are real and narrated very well.
    Rashmi has done a good job once again after her best non fiction books Stay Hungry Stay Foolish and Connecting the dots.
    The great thing about each story is that you can relate them easily.
    The crux of each story is that it all starts with a sense of service to the society and how to turn it in the profitable business.
    Social service cannot be better than this if it is done as a business.
