Book Description

Author's Note

What is history? It is mostly are record of people who show leadership qualities. They set the goal; never loose sight of the goal; lead from the front, daring the risks and the dangers boldly. Events don't shape them. They shape events, gain fame and name. The people whom they lead honour them with titles. The world community includes them in the Roll of Honour. Indians honour the leaders in all walks of life. The best among them win the highest honour… the Bharat Ratna for those who lead the people to new heights of glory.

We need to remember them, prove to be worthy of them. That is possible only if we know how they achieved greatness. In other words, we have to know them, intimately. How can we know them? How else but through retelling their lives! That is what we have done through this set of books.

Read the profiles. Get inspiration from them. Study the path each great person choose. Find out how each one made his dreams come true. Thus, prepare yourself for the future. Have stars in your eyes and sparkles in your dreams. Gain the courage to turn your dreams into reality. May be, one of you may even win the Bharat Ratna.
