      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.

    One little two little three little Indians, four little five little six little Indians, seven little eight little nine little Indians... One million little Indian entrepreneurs.

    These are the stories of the little people who make up the Big Idea of Dharavi.

    A slum of energy, enterprise and hope.
    Where every hand is busy, every head held high.
    Where people could be miserable but choose to be happy.
    A choice each of us can make.

    This book Does NOT Connect the Dots.

    Well, i ordered this book even before it was released. So, as usual FK did a great job in delivering the book on time that too with the limited edition Autographed by Rashmi Bhansal herself. But, the book turned out to be a BIG disappointment. Unlike the last 3 books of amazing success stories, this book is a re-creation of discovery channel episode on Dharavi. I finished the book in about 4.5 hours of time. Not for once was my adrenaline high.

    If you like reading books, then probably go ah...

    Dharavi Shines!

    Beware folks! The new generation of IIMs is not just capable of managing giant international firms with their admin skills for astronomical salaries! They can surprise you as writers of contemporary fiction and motivational books and self improvement to name a few topics. So we have Chetan Bhagat who took the young and the old readers by storm through his ‘Five Point Someone’ and making regular appearances in television shows and magazines with his thought provoking writings and a few more po...

    Every cloud has a silver lining

    I am associated with one of the enterprises featured in this book, Barefoot Acupuncturists. So I often need to buy this book to gift to our funders and supporters; including acupuncturists who come from overseas to work at our clinics.

    Just recently we required 5 copies of this book. I couldn't go to any physical bookstores to buy this book, because I'm recovering from a fractured leg. So I logged on to Flipkart and placed the order to be delivered directly to the clinic. It was delivered in...

    India needs more entrprising people like Dharavi........ wish our politicians and babus read this book

    Welcome change, book is written in a simple form with beautiful pictures of Dharavi along with its most beautiful people, who are doing a great job quietly in Dharavi. Authors have done great job by showcasing some of the honest, passionate and focused people, who are not privileged to go to good schools/colleges/universities. Their inner strength, convictions and attitude not only transformed their career but of many others who are working with them. They are living with dignity and pride.

    Good Insight into the lives of people at Dharavi

    Thanks for the the original product.
    Flawless packaging and quick delivery.
    Book is really a nice insight into the lives of people living in "Dharavi".
    Loved the way authors described the "Jazba" of all these people and hats off to the efforts put together to collect all the information and put it in words as beautifully.

    Good book but not enough Detail

    4th Book of Rashmi Bansal and when book is on Dharavi and its Businessman then you expect more detail but its more picture and not much detail.

    People who thinks Dharavi is just slum and for elites who thinks its the blot on the Mumbai's economic landscape then Must Read book for them... how and what people thinks about Dharavi who live there and still aspiring as other normal Indians...

    A decent but very long and clumsy title.

    The author is very well know for her two best sold books but this one is not upto the expectations. Moreover the contents of the sessions are missing, for which have been overwritten by addition of pictures. Looking for the brighter side, the reader has a good view of what actually is Dharavi, especially to those who are not aware about its facts.I personally am a great admirer of the author, but being honest to the other buyers, there are certain sections where the reader gets bored and want...

    Poor Little Rich Slum

    Thanks to flipkart for delivering in time. As regards to the Book, each one should read the book as this portrays positive face of Dharavi which is popularly known as slum area. The book gives insight to small entrepreneurs who are into various businesses and running successfully. One of the important aspects of Dharavi is that most of the people living there are reluctant to vacate / leave the place as they have one or the other emotional attachments. I really enjoyed reading this book.

    Poor by economy, Rich in spirits
