A new world of hope and opportunity

Highlight Story

Mumbai is the city of opportunities. It is as full of possibilities as of traffic. Here, we always think, anything, really, is possible. We fantasise about reinventing ourselves in this city of dreams. But so few of us get around to doing it. We find our excuses for not taking our futures in our own hands: we say we don't have the time, or money, or that we need to look after our families first. They are more often than not excuses for not having the courage, to keep in abeyance the fear of failure.

Small Ideas Big Change presents the stories of 12 daring, dogged and ambitious people who didn't merely dream but who went ahead and did what they dreamt of. These entrepreneurs, little known when they started, grasped the opportunities that Mumbai presented them with. They altered their own lives with their successful ventures.

And by what they accomplished, they changed the way Mumbai lives: from the way we watch movies to the manner in which we travel in a taxi, from the way we buy jewellery to how we do health checkups.

These are stories of brain meeting bravado, of grit marrying guts. These are inspirational stories. These people are better at doing things than talking about doing them. Are you? Could you be like them?
