We seem to notice only two types of successes. Those achieved by people who have attained demi-God status and others from the West, whom we blindly try to emulate. How many times do we look at people, closer home, who are much like us? People living a life like the one we live, with dreams like the ones we have, facing challenges like the ones we do.These people, no different from us, are yet, far ahead of us. They have lived a life, which although very similar, is quite different from ours.This book is a collection of real life stories of some extraordinary achievers. They come from all walks of life, from very corner of India, cutting across all age groups. They dared to defy the trend and refused to join the rat race. They have moved away and walked ahead. They have been the path-breakers.Their life and work should serve as an assurance and source of motivation to those who desire to follow their instinct and take the road less traveled.
