Banwarilal Jindal’s journey from Sui in Haryana to Delhi was a saga of big dreams, innovation, relentless hard work and self-motivation. In the process he taught himself perhaps what no business school can teach—the ability to believe in yourself during the most despondent times and look at every obstacle as an opportunity. Even as he was tough on himself and dealt with want and difficulties with equanimity, he touched many lives with his generosity and gentleness. This account of how he built an industrial empire is a heartwarming and extraordinary story of grit, of surmounting hurdles and being a guiding beacon to family, friends and countless others.About the Author
