      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?

      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.

    Sometimes all it takes is a book to get inspired. We as Indians rely too much on our past glory. This is an excellent and inspirational guide on present day Indians who made Orbit shifting challenges. A book for the "doers".

    Really Inspiring

    This book gives me a confidence again that however big the problem might be, there is a solution, its just how you look at it and how much common sense and determination you have.

    And these real life stories from businesses around us helps to relate to the problems that we had already seen or problems we might have in future. I would not be surprised to see a second part to this book, with more success stories from businesses around us.

I picked up this book at Chennai airport and completed reading it in the next two days.It has impacted me very much not because one of the 11 impossible things had happened at Trichy (my native place), but because I could see myself in most of the struggles. I picked up few sentences from the book and used it in my presentation. I asked my tea...
