The Game Changers : Entrepreneurship

It was on Monday the February 13, I read in the Business Line on page 14 (Biblio File) a book review with a caption "A Toast to IIT Kharagpur".  The name of the book is "The Game Changers" authored by three young men, two of whom are current final year students and the third is an alumnus of IIT-K, all working simultaneously for the Entrepreneurship Cell of the Institute.  Their names are Yuvnesh Modi, Rahul Kumar and Alok Kothari.  The book (262 pages) is published by Random House India and priced at Rs. 150 only. It covers 20 graduates of the Institute in different years who turned to be Entrepreneurs who are profiled.  The book has been written and released in connection with celebrating of 60 years of IIT-K this year.

With all my curiosity, I requested my friend Dr Manjunatha, Librarian at TAPMI to get a copy for me.  He ordered through flipkart, Bangalore on the same day.  To my utter surprise although they stated in the invoice 3-4 days as delivery period on COD basis, I got the parcel on Feb 14, the very next day, in Manipal.  More than the book and its contents, I was made to believe the swift service rendered the real Game Changer - M/s Flipkart.com! I am referring to page no. 65 of the latest issue of The Week magazine and the article Write Path, wherein the newborn Flipkart itself is referred to as a Game Changer, the desi version of Amazon! Hats Off!!
