      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    An anthology of 15 inspirational stories about the differently abled who have shown enduring spirit in the face of severe disability. While the rest of the world has taken great strides in mainstreaming the differently abled into the larger contours of their society, life continues to be an uphill struggle for the differently-abled in India. They continue to be burdened with their 'handicapped' status and live a life on the fringes, largely forgotten by a society which is galloping ahead at a fast pace. Born 'different' from the rest of us, they have been put in a position of disadvantage in a world where being 'normal' is at such a premium. Written by the bestselling author of Legacy and Leading Ladies, Sudha Menon, and the MD of SAP Labs India, V. R. Ferose, Gifted celebrates the journeys of these very Indians who are neither CEOs nor part of any influential power clubs, but special in their own way. These are stories that can inspire even the most 'abled' among us.

    About the Author

    Sudha Menon is the author of two bestselling nonfiction books, Leading Ladies: Women Who Inspire India, and Legacy, a compilation of letters from inspirational Indian men and women to their daughters. She is a former newspaper journalist and is currently a columnist. Sudha is the founder of Get Writing!, a writing workshop that she set up to help people kick start their writing journey and is founder of Writing In the Park, an initiative to get people to explore their creativity while writing in public parks and gardens. Sudha is a TEDx speaker and often speaks at educational institutions and corporate campuses about women's leadership and diversity issues. Meeting the people she interviewed and wrote about in Gifted made her realize the immense potential and promise that each of us carry within us. Some of us manage to tap that well deep within us to bring out our best while some go through life without the faintest idea of who we can really be. Having met the people in Gifted, she is determined to live her life to the fullest, just as they do. V.R. Ferose is Senior Vice President and Head of Globalization Service for SAP AG and former Managing Director of SAP Labs India. Deeply sensitive to the unequal world in which we live, Ferose founded the 'India Inclusion Summit', a unique platform that focuses on the need for inclusion in our lives. He is a Director on the Board of Specialist People Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation with the goal to create one million jobs globally for people with autism and is on the panel of 'The Vision Group on Information Technology', Government of Karnataka. He is also co-founder of the Karnataka chapter of Global Shapers, which works to create leadership among the youth. For his professional accomplishments, commitment to society, and potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world, Ferose was honored as a 'Young Global Leader' in March 2012 by the World Economic Forum. In a study published by the Economic Times and Spencer Stuart, Ferose was selected as one of the leaders in 'Indian's Top 40 under 40', 2014. This study is considered to be India's most authentic leadership study and it lists 40 extraordinary business leaders under the age of 40.
