You don't have to be a billionaire or an internationally renowned religious figure to make an impact. This book is an inspiring story of a young man from a small city in India who had a dream to go to Japan, a country whose culture, language, and lores are completely different. It is a story of late 1960's life and in this infernal dream of Japan...and what a lovely moment (which gives a sense of place and of history) when he was told how there were still the view of "Nuclear fall out" and the loss of hair for Japanese men. This young man eventually worked for more than 31 years as a senior manager with General Electric (GE), Medtronic (one of the largest medical device company) and The Stanley Works. During GE tenure, he rose through ranks to join The Japanese Board of Directors for GE Yokogawa Medical Systems (GEYMS), the first Indian to have achieved in 21-year history of this joint venture. By driving CHANGE he achieved the most demanding financial projections, sales, and business targets. His brilliant cultural insights --- the "Indian mind" versus the Japanese mind (even the small thing like realising that Indians are prolific communicators whilst Japanese do not like communicating) gave him understanding the different cultures of companies in GE, Medtronic and Stanley which eventually led to impact for a successful business. This life story of courage, struggles, persistence, leadership and managing the changing paradigm will inspire and touch the raw nerve of my readers that a mediocre college dropout can still influence and change the world around us.
