      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.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

    Go Kiss the World: Life Lessons for the Young Professional is a motivating message from an extremely popular Indian entrepreneur, Subroto Bagchi. It is mainly written for the young Indian professionals.

    Summary of the Book

    Go Kiss the World: Life Lessons for the Young Professional is Bagchi’s inspiring book, a memoir of sorts. The title of the book was taken from the last words uttered by his mother just before her passing away. Her words were the main inspiration for Bagchi to shape up his life as an achiever that he is today. He narrates his life story - from his birth and childhood in a small town in rural Orissa. His family values inculcated in him simplicity, wonder, and contentment. He started learning all that he could from rather strange sources. His conviction, ideologies and moral principles took him from the modest of beginnings to what he is today. In Go Kiss the World, he talks about his own stories with simple bits of astuteness that helped hugely in his life. He encourages and rejuvenates young professionals to dream and live astonishing lives instead of ordinary, unexciting existences. Bagchi compels them to realize their own potential and strive for excellence and success.

    Not so good biography

    I am really surprised seeing good reviews about this book.
    It can only be because those readers were first-timer reading a biography or they read just for sake.

    Well, i started this book with big things in mind,but i was thoroughly disappointed.
    I never found out the answers to the questions i had in mind which i expected the book to answer.
    This is no match at all compared to JackWelch and Sam Walton biographies,which opened me to better thinking . (Yet to read Losing my Virginity ! )

    A must read for budding Managers

    A good leader has to be a good human being. The author cites how he made the most of the limited resources he had in life. The book is an easy read with simple English so that even budding professionals and students from small towns can take inspiration from.

    The author sends an implicit message in the book that a good leader always learns from his seniors. The author grew under the leadership of Wipro Boss Azim Premji and Ashok Soota.

    A excellent motivational book!

Normally in India a real middle class boy fears to take risk, and leaves a normal life with a secure job. But Mr. Bagchi came from such a family and became a successful entrepreneur; you can get a lot of lessons from his story.

    The initial part of this book may feel bore as it contains some odd village names and most about relocation (But it stands good for me as it re...
