Author of the book 'The Underage CEOs - Fascinating Stories of Young Indians who Became CEOs in Their Twenties'​. This is a book that celebrates the spirit of young entrepreneurs of India. It narrates the wonderful journeys of highly-motivated student entrepreneurs from across India, each of whom has set up his/her own company at the age of 22 or 24, and is running it successfully today. I have written the book to inspire thousands of college students and other youngsters to take the plunge early on in life. Because, when it comes to becoming an entrepreneur, the earlier, the better!
