Vidarbha Industries Association (VIA) Entrepreneurship Forum convened a press conference, which was addressed by acclaimed author, motivational speaker and successful entrepreneur Rashmi Bansal. She launched her latest book Gods Own Kitchen based on Akshaya Patra Foundation (a non-profit organisation), which is world’s largest mid-day meal program across India.

Speaker Rashmi Bansal during the press conference said, Ordinary people are capable of doing extra-ordinary things. First, you should believe in yourself; only then people will believe in you. Since my childhood I wanted to be a journalist, as I believed that writing was my passion.  My father wanted me to pursue MBA. I never wanted to follow the primitive theory of attending a ₹9 to 5? job. I was ambitious enough to take up new challenges in life. It was because of my father that I completed my education. But, I always wanted to do something unique. I wanted to become an entrepreneur.

She further added, Failures are pillars of success. I wrote many articles, which were rejected by all major media houses. I still had a ray of hope. Finally, in January 1990, my first article (on India-Pan Orama) was published in The Times of India, where I worked for two years. It became a motivational factor for me.

Motivating and encouraging the audience, Bansal said, You should have the desperation and hunger if you want to become something in life. Every child should work in McDonalds for at least a month to realise the importance of struggle. You need to put in thousands of hours behind your work. Live a life, which makes you happy and don’t compare yourself with anyone. Kaam karo, fal ki chinta mat karo. Parents should support their kids. It took my father 20 years to say that I took the right step. Start small and think big!

Rashmi Bansal has also penned several bestsellers namely ? Stay Hungry Stay Foolish, Connect the dots, I have a dream, Poor little Rich Slum, Follow every rainbow, etc. She is also the founder of a portal – bloodygoodbook.com – a platform to encourage budding authors. Bansal is also the co-founder of JAM (Just another Magazine), which went on to become India’s most popular youth magazine. Her popular blog – Youth Curry – features her writings on youth, careers and entrepreneurship.

Akash Agrawal, Anita Rao, Atul Pande, Suresh Rathi and Suhas Buddhe were also present during the book launch, which was conducted at VIA Boardroom, Udyog Bhawan, Civil Lines, Nagpur, on April 8, 2017.
