"Go Kiss the World" is a book by Subroto Bagchi, co-founder of Mindtree . It was released on 17th June '08. His speech to the class of 2006 at IIM Bangalore where he spoke about this guiding principles of life had given him the idea to share it with with a much larger audience through this book. "Go Kiss the World" talks about Bagchi's journey of life starting from his modest childhood days to the successful leader as the world sees his today. Bagchi says" This book is not an autobiography, but my learnings and experiences in life .Thay are like a plain canvas ,it is the what you gain from the book and use them in life whenever necessary is the painting you make on the canvas"
It is a very interesting and an inspiring read. It is one of those books which you can never keep aside until you've completley read it. The book is aimed at young professionals from small-town India, but I would recommend this book to everyone in all age groups. Especially to those considering Entrepreneurship as their career option. the book is divided into three parts.
The first one talks about his early childhood days , the second part about his beginning phase of his career and the last one about his association with Wipro , the birth of Mindtree and his latest designation "The Gardener". It shows how from modest beginnings he has gone to co-found one of India's most admired software services company. All three parts are equally interesting, but I personally like the first and the third part better.
"Go Kiss the World" is Subroto Bagchi's blind mother's last words to him, which turned on to become his life's guiding principle.
Subroto Bagchi is also the author of "The High performance Entrepreneur", I haven't read the book as yet. If you've given it a read, I would like to hear your views about it.
P.S. I have started my Singapore series "Tales from Singapore", your virtual visa to the lion city at Shalini's travelogue. Have a look at it and let me know your views :)
