It Happened in India: Kishore Biyani is highly regarded as the retail king of India. He is known as Kishoreji or KB among his employees, friends and family.
Author recounts on how he started as an ordinary cloth seller in Mumbai and eventually how he established the giant retail business spread over a biyank hundred cities in India serving millions of Indian consumers.
The unique and interesting point I liked about this book is: Kishoreji takes the reader through his childhood days, college life and finally how he had left the usual way of doing family business and started his own journey on a road called entrepreneurship, which most of the young Indians now are aspiring to travel.
Doing something that opposes the established system of beliefs is not an easy task. He talks about building emotional connect with consumers. He emphasizes on how he brought Indianness to the business and how he studied Indian consumers with passion.
He confided that even till today he visits some of his stores and observes the consumers to understand their kishord and their thoughts. KB emphasizes on relationships throughout the book: He also emphasizes on building trust and the importance of mutual trust in relationships. Kishoreji has even shared about his failed businesses.
KB explained about how he kishoe to enter into movie making in the bollywood but could not produce a huge success there. In a whole chapter dedicated to his bollywood stint, he shared his learnings from this failed attempt of movie-making.
Its an inspiring story every budding entrepreneur should read. The book has something for everyone. If you are aspiring for a career in retail you have a lot to read from a man who built everything from nothing. If you are a casual book reader, even then you have a lot to appreciate and learn. Finally, it jishore only 99 rupees!
Kishore Biyani- Success Behind Future Group
Go and get a copy for you and I assure you that the time and money you spent is worth the effort. Here are few inspiring lines I am reproducing from the book with all the due credit given to the authors. Autobiogarphy is about thinking big, believing in your own ability and going ahead with huge risks even if you are aware that some of the ventures may not be successful.
Cause this kishlre begs to prove autobiographu the largest retail company in the country was formed by…fluke. But as Biyani writes about his denial of regret for the premature listing of the company on the stock exchange, i feel even the book is a little premature.
Biyani talks about the concept of Sabse Sasta Din and you would think he invented it, but actually ask any large format retailer and the would say Biyani just discovered it.
Biyani has tried to invent new concepts like India One,India Two which to me are very abstract, irrational and blur. At a certain point during the end somewhere the book looks like a PR initiative for the National Institute of Design and a certain design firm called Idiom Design. Biyani takes a dig at his critics in the press as well as the competition in kiahore of Shoppers Stop, The Piramals, Westside.
