      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.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      'Imported'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      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

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is an array of twenty-five biographies about IIM-Ahmedabad graduates who are now successful entrepreneurs. This book is motivating, to-the-point, and is an eye-opener for young Indians.

    Summary Of The Book

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is a collection of stories about twenty-five IIM-Ahmedabad graduates who decided to stay out of the corporate world, and instead chose the road less taken. These men and women became entrepreneurs, and climbed the ladder of success.

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish shows how all these individuals come from different backgrounds, work in different industries, and have different outlooks, but they all strongly believe in the power of their dreams. This book has been divided into three parts, namely The Believers, The Alternate Vision and The Opportunists. The first portion talks about the hardship faced by entrepreneurs like Sanjeev Bikhchandani, who started Naukri.com, and the founder of Educomp, Shantanu Prakash.

    The Opportunists focuses on people who were not inclined towards ownership, but their inventiveness turned them into entrepreneurs. The story of how Ruby Ashraf made her hobby into a business is inspiring. The last section focuses on individuals who have taken the entrepreneurial path to do things that impact culture and society. Creator of consultancy firm Chlorophyll, Anand Halve’s story, is covered here. Some other IIM-A, alumni whose stories have been included in this book are R. Subramanian, the owner of the Subhiksha group, and Sunil Handa, the founder of the Ekalavya Educational Foundation.

    The author hopes to familiarize readers with these successful entrepreneurs, so that Indians can look beyond corporate jobs and salaries. At the end of each biography is a section that advises young entrepreneurs. Furthermore, the author also explains terms like ADEPT, ORRU, and XBRL.

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish has been compiled after extensive research, and the author has used a very personal and conversational style of writing. This book is concise, inspiring, educative, and filled with practical wisdom. More than 350,000 copies of Stay Hungry Stay Foolish have been sold, thus creating a new book record in India. The book has been translated into eight languages.

    Inspiring read but only in scope of IIM-A

    Rashmi Banshal, with this book, made an effort to instigate the entrepreneurial drive that had been long concealed under the cobwebs of naive social influences in an individual.

    Since one's childhood, the society, namely parents, relatives, teachers, friends etc;, influences on one's thought process thus forbidding him/her taking any risk but aim for a secure job to lead a hassle free life. Though this is the case in every corner of the world, India especially, few of them see the world out...

    Going through the contents, you will notice many familiar companies with their not so famous chairpersons. It does not speak about their lives but only a bit about how they started their business, their struggle and their creative minds. And of course all these entrepreneurs are alumnus of IIM A.

    Entreprenuership Oriented

    This book is fully oriented to entreprenuership. Its inspirational and motivational. But the portrays the success of only IIM-A Grats. Its like an advertising book of IIM-A although it is not required since IIM-A is most coveted as always. Advisable for entreprenuerial interested ppl not for IIM-A aspiring ppl.

    Stay hungry stay foolish, but don’t make your stomach empty

    It is very good book for not only the peoples who wants to be an entrepreneur but also for the people who loves to dream and to make it real. The stories are very good and motivating. It says about self confidence, hard work, special techniques, and all about the way to be successful in life.
    But one thing, this is a book where the stories are all about the successful entrepreneurs from IIM-A. There are many more examples of successful entrepreneurs. IIM-A is no...

    A good read and Must read

    Its a must book for those who have little entrepreneurial gene or interested in how people have struggled to establish themselves. The book doesn't have a high/low sine curve in terms of excitement. It covered a wide range of business and most of them are well known brands never knew those are IIMA grads creation.

    I saw some reviews asking why only IIMA and hinting at Ambani? But dear reviewer, its book published by CIIE, which is an IIMA initiative. And the objective of book is specific. It...
