Dare to Dream

6 07 2005

Rai Bahadur Mohan Singh Oberoi, the man behind the Oberoi hotels.

Going down the list of people I admire most.

‘Dare to Dream’ is a biography  I read eons back. From what I remember this is an excellent book that tells the story of a man who pretty much built an empire from scratch.

He was born in a small village in Pakistan. Was brought up by a very enterprising mother. One very interesting episode I still remember is about how he pawned all his wife’s jewellery to get his first hotel in Calcutta.
