The book serves as an inspiration to many who are caught in the run-of-the-mill college and placements routine,” says Rashmi.

Incidentally Rashmi herself is an IIM-Ahmedabad graduate who chose to write instead of working for corporates. “My internship and the survey that I did on detergents convinced me that I am not made to sell soaps and detergents,” she says. “The pressure from family and peers is always there.
