I Have A Dream (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.137

I Have A Dream is a unique collection of twenty inspirational stories of social entrepreneurs who have found creative solutions for old problems.

Summary Of The Book

I Have A Dream consists of 20 engrossing tales of people who have dedicated their lives for the good of the society. Beginning with the birth and education of these people, their childhood, and the struggles and success of their journey, Rashmi Bansal offers a comprehensive coverage of their lives. Segregated into three sections, the book divides the people into three types, the Rainmakers, the Changemakers and the Spiritual Capitalists.

The first part is dedicated to the Rainmakers. These are the entrepreneurs who earn profits from their work, even though profit is not their sole motive. It has stories like Caste Away, Rags to Riches, Beyond Profit, Weave the People, and Move the Mountains. The second part is dedicated to the Changemakers, who have strived hard to bring about a positive change in others lives. The Scientific Socialist, The Naked Truth, The Art of War, The Girl in the Mirror, Inner Engineering, and Into that Heaven of Freedom are some of the stories in this section.

The third section is titled Spiritual Capitalists and relates to those entrepreneurs who have blended spiritualism with common welfare. It consists of stories like All in the Family, Lead Kindly Light and Soul Food. From India’s first rural BPO to eco-tourism and solar lightings, from Micro-Venture Funding to Sulabh Shauchalayas, the book has stories of prominent personalities like Harish Hande, Dhruv Lakra, Arvind Kejriwal, Shreesh Jadhav, and Bindeshwar Pathak. These people with their big dreams and compelling passion have made a significant difference in the lives of many across India. Bansal, in her wonderful book, pays tribute to these innovative entrepreneurs who continue to inspire many others.

I Have a Dream has won acclaim since its publication in 2011. The book was on the shortlist for The Economist Crossword Popular Award in 2012.

Good Report, Bad Book

I bought this book online a few days ago and I have to say,I really believed it was going to be a great read. Unfortunately though, my expectations were shunned and the book failed at so many places.
I was really shocked to see how little the author has to say, apart from the often used "...the year was.." or the occasional description of the subject's reaction, or the deliberate mention of her hearing things from the subjects, there isn't really anything that feels like its coming from the author's pen.
The author could've just gone and made a Blog post out of this, would've co...

The author could've just gone and made a Blog post out of this, would've cost less and not to mention saved a lot of trees.
There were so many instances when I just wanted to close the book but I decided to respect a best selling author of the nation and go through with it. I'm really trying hard to be polite but the only things I found useful were a couple of one liners and the last two pages.
I still believe Rashmi's intent is good and she means to do more than just sell stories, But one things certain, she needs to stop interviewing and start real writing.

Striking!!!!...Will make you to think what have you done to this society!!!

This book has definitely made me think--- why are we looking towards the west for every answer,when we have the full capability to fight and design a solution????..People have done it in past!!!It is a shame on us that we don't recognize the kind of work we Indians are doing remaining in the country itself..How many of us are actually investing our time to do something for the society???the number is very less!!!..Though we are topping the list in population explosion!!

This book has brought how a simple idea can change your whole life, which can totally change the way of thinking and perceiving things in society.

Pros:

- had a photo before a story begins, which satisfied the anxiety that happens if we read through and does not know who that person is.
- covered various fields and not just related to business
- has stories for the utilities which were used by us at some or the other point but we have never thought how did it came into existence. For Example : Sulabh International!!

Cons:
I did not find any..Still Reading!!!

I think this is a must read for everyone!! I will not say it is inspiring..but striking....

Effective and Excellent

This book is not fiction.
Each story in this book motivates you. it reinforces the faith about our country.
The style of writing is unique I think. Most of the time - it is from the heart expressed in a simple way. No superlatives, no efforts to please anybody . as it is. this is the most appealing
part of the author. and definitely it touches your heart.

it is not boring. the title of each story/chapter may give impression : what is there to read? but let me tell you. you will not stop until you complete the full chapter.

One thing is to blame blame and blame. when you come to know about so many people
with positive attitudes, changes the world of many people around them, it really touches the heart.

I am reading two of her books. but I had sent them as gift to my niece. I liked them so much.

Thanks to the author!

I have a Dream

Although I have finished only 1st personality - Mr. Pathak of Sulabh fame, I am already impressed with this project Rashmi Bansal has undertaken and congratulate her for that. It is really an eye opener and highly motivating to vicariously experience the struggles and troubles these great heroes have gone through. In fact, while reading those pages, I was cursing myself for not doing something of great importance for my community also. The reason why my reading of this book is so slow is in fact the soul-searching which this book throws me in again and again. I just can't read it passively,... ()

The reason why my reading of this book is so slow is in fact the soul-searching which this book throws me in again and again. I just can't read it passively, without feeling anything.

I wonder why the book is so casually designed and printed. May be Rashmi Bansal couldn't afford a better publisher for her. But for me, contents of the book are my primary concern and I would give 10/10 marks to Rashmi for that.
