This is the remarkable story of a man who broke through the shackles of poverty and scaled the heights of perfection in different fields.
Kishore V. Sonpal’s life depicts the triumph of hope and confidence over adversity and obstacles. All through his life, he built a legacy of simplicity, spirituality and integrity, leaving behind an indelible impression on countless lives.
Born at a time when his father had gone bankrupt, Kishore had a tough childhood. After being schooled in municipal schools, he self-funded his engineering. Deeply influenced by Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda, he lived his life on the principles of simplicity and truthfulness. In five decades of professional life, he transformed the rusty ways in both public sector as well as private companies that he worked with; joined a start-up in an alien domain in his fifties; and shunned a retired life to help sharpen young minds in his seventies. He also survived two pandemics and narrowly escaped death multiple times.
Written engagingly by his son, Hetal Sonpal, this awe-inspiring book describes how his father overcame numerous challenges to create extraordinary memories and learnings for a fulfilling life.
In a narrative written with searing honesty, Hetal weaves together a string of life-changing experiences and creates a mesmerizing ode to his father. This is a truly riveting read that will inspire readers, both young and old, to boldly face challenges and not give up in times of adversity.
