For a generation thriving on relentless pursuit of selfish goals, Rashmi Bansal’s “I have a Dream” comes as a reminder that life is much more than just one’s own world

Readers are not stranger to Rashmi Bansal’s writing, especially while considering both her previous books Stay Hungry Stay Foolish and Connect the Dots”. In her usual inimitable style of writing, she describes the different obstacles that the twenty entrepreneurs braved to stay on their chosen path. The same appeal is back, courtesy her latest outing with “I Have a Dream”. The book is divided into three sections – Rainmakers, Change makers and The Spiritual Capitalists. “Rainmakers” is about social enterprises, which generate revenues but where profit is not the primary motive. This section has some very interesting stories behind enterprises, which have taken the object of doing good and has built a successful business around it. Some of the stories which left an impact on me are the ones about Bindeshwar Pathak, the man behind Sulabh International who despite being a Brahmin himself had the compassion to do something for the scavengers, Sumita Ghosh who established Rangsutra after her husband was murdered by the ULFA terrorists and changed the lives of rural women, Anand Kumar, the Maths tutor of Super 30 whose tenacity had seen all 30 of the poor, meritorious students of his class crack the IIT JEE in 2008 and Druv Lakra of Mirakle Couriers which employs only deaf people. Their stories, along with the others in this section like Conserve India, Aavishkaar Social Venture Fund, DesiCrew, Spiti Ecosphere, SELCO, Pipal Tree and Project Chilka have been narrated by the author in such vivid description that they are sure to tug your heart and inspire you to reach out to the underprivileged masses just like them. The book is a mixture of people who dream big, live in it, and innovate to achieve it. It runs across various social issues, and finally achieving it. One of the best collections of social enterprises where the motive is to do good and not charity. Something that can inspire anyone, and RightBooks.in is responsible for that act.
