Dare to Dream

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, which I read eons back. From what I remember this is an excellent book, which 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 that I still remember is, how he pawned all his wife's jewellery to get his first hotel in Calcutta.
