Rich Dad Poor Dad (Marathi) is the Marathi translation of the worldwide bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, a book that stresses on achieving financial independence and talks about the many ways in which one can create wealth.
Summary Of The Book
Rich Dad Poor Dad (Marathi) is narrated from the point of view of the author, who tells his readers of his learnings from the two fathers he grew up watching during his childhood. One was his biological father, the poor dad, and the other was his friend Mike's father, the rich dad. Both fathers taught the author a lot about achieving success, but on close examination, the author discovers that the teachings of the two fathers could help him build strong finances.
Throughout the book, the author compares the two fathers in terms of ideas, principles, and financial practices that both the dads subscribed to and shows that his dad, the poor dad, lacked the ability to build assets and create wealth.
At the core of the book lies the simple idea that one needs to become financially literate to be able to create massive wealth. The author compares his dad to the other working men who participate in the rat race and sustain themselves off of the income they earn. On the other hand, the rich dad takes advantage of the financial knowledge residing within the precincts of large corporations and creates phenomenal wealth.
The theme of Rich Dad Poor Dad (Marathi) revolves around two fundamental attitudes, fearless entrepreneurship and a can-do attitude. These two attitudes are highlighted by the author in the form of several teachings such as achieving financial literacy, minding your own business, how corporations help the wealthy grow even wealthier, and overcoming obstacles by avoiding certain negative and lazy attitudes.
The original publication of Rich Dad Poor Dad (Marathi) became a household name and obviously experienced massive success in sales. The book sold over 26 million copies worldwide. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith have openly endorsed this book, which was originally self-published in the year 1997.
