The youth looks upto a role model in his life whom he can emulate. Unfortunately, our media in the past 60 years has projected only sportstars and filmstars as role models to the Indian youth. The real heroes of the India story have often remained unsung. How many teenagers in India may have heard of a Gururaj Deshpande or Kurien Isaacs or Amar Bose or Vikram Pandit or Prakash Amte just to name a few ? Their sterling achievements have gone unnoticed in the minds of the masses. But everyone knows of MS Dhoni or Salman Khan or Deepika Padukone and all their achievement, controversies and gossip.
The IIT-P Role Models Book is a humble attempt to portray the achievements of a few luminaries in diverse fields of life from Business to Science & Technology and from Acting to Social & Spiritual work. The profiles of these luminaries are inspiring and we hail them as Role Models for the youth of this great nation. Almost all the Role models highlighted in this book came from modest backgrounds but rose to great heights of prominence in their fields by sheer hard work, astute vision and skill. We have taken care not to include blue-blooded species who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth as part of this book.
The book is published jointly with an NGO which works for students. The book shall be released in January 2016.
