India, under the able leadership of Shri Narendra Modi, is seeing an unprecedented wave of optimism with a high focus on making India an entrepreneurial country, tapping into its unbridled power. Giving the current scenario, Ronnie Screwvala one of India’s most celebrated first generation entrepreneurs announces the launch of his book – Dream With Your Eyes Open that encapsulates his 25 yearlong entrepreneurial journey. With the book, Ronnie shares his failures and triumphs and strives to instill a belief of it’s all-possible and it can be done within this generation.
Hon. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has sent in his congratulations and wishes to Ronnie appreciating his effort to evangelise entrepreneurship in the country through his book. “I am happy to learn that Shri Ronnie Screwvala has written a book on the theme of entrepreneurship, ‘Dream with your eyes open’. I hope the book will encourage the youth of India to pursue their dreams, and in doing so, devote their energies to find innovative ways to build better lives for millions of Indians. On this occasion, I convey my best wishes to Shri Ronnie Screwvala and hope his effort will serve as inspiration or many”, he said.
“It is humbling to receive such encouraging words from such a visionary and communicative leader and our country’s Prime Minister. I am delighted that Shri Narendra Modi emphasizes on the power of entrepreneurship, I myself feel that the country should have more entrepreneurs and even today, 99 per cent of people don’t feel confident enough to start a business on their own. Dream With Your Eyes Open shares failures and triumphs, thoughts and anecdotes of my journey. It details out my vast experiences and myriad lessons learned from more than two decades of building some successful (and some not-so-successful) businesses. The idea of the book was born from the need to share my learnings and hopefully inspire young and well established entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey”, said Ronnie Screwvala.
Ronnie Screwvala’s book is also receiving rave reviews from the leading corporate honchos including Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Anand Mahindra, Nandan Nilekani amongst a host of others.
“This book is small contribution from my end towards tapping the entrepreneurial potential of our country. It is encouraging that my friends and colleagues have come forward to show their support for the book and the cause it aims to champion. I hope this book inspires people to dream and dream big”, signed off Ronnie.
