The great achievers who feature in this book were all once normal young people, who had dreams and aspirations, joys and sorrows, doubts and questions-like every young reader of this book. They learnt from their experiences and grew up into individuals who have made a mark in their respective field, be it science, industry, arts, social work, judiciary or films. They are the Achievers of the post-Independence era.
The aim of this book is to bring out the fact that greatness, for the most part, is achieved through determination and perseverance and that it is possible for anyone to scale great heights provided one has these two qualities regardless of the social and financial background.
The stories in this collection are all based on personal interviews, where all the personalities shared incidents and experiences from their childhood with me. I thank them all for kindly going through their respective stories, checking for the correctness and giving their comments and approval. In this revised edition, the profiles at the end of each chapter have been updated to include the latest achievements and awards won by the personalities.
