      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.

      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:

      • 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.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships 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.

    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.

    Paper Quality of this book not worth the price

    This is my 3rd order from flipkart and was again impressed by the prompt delivery of this book. But this time, the paper quality of the book was not good (smells awful). The same quality book can be easily purchased from roadside vendors for Rs 40-50. So I wont recommend buying book from this publisher.

    every story is inspiring

    got this book at a 50% discount price,which was a steal. coming to the book,all the stories revolve around the theme of social entrepreneurship,and makes us introspect what have we done for the society and people of weaker section.overall this book has described the struggle of the persons in depth and the satisfaction they get when they see people happy and content.

    Pretty Boring

    The book is fatter than the usual Rashmi Bansal books. It shouldn't have been! She should have reduced the number of stories.
    Stopped in the middle. Went through only a few stories. Didn't find many interesting ones.

    Hats off to the author, every single Dreamer in the book. Wherever we are, the best way to develop courage is to set a goal and achieve it, make a promise and keep it~ is the simple message conveyed by the book. It is the best inspirational book I have ever read. After Ayn Rand, Rashmi Bansal is now my second love.
