What’s inside

Doglapan unfolds the compelling journey of Ashneer Grover, chronicling the harsh realities of life and the challenges of entrepreneurship. From a young boy labeled with a 'refugee' tag in Delhi's Malviya Nagar, he defies circumstances, excelling academically at IIT Delhi and later earning an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad. As an investment banker, he plays a pivotal role in the success of two unicorns—Grofers and BharatPe. The memoir, titled 'Doglapan: The Untold Story of India's Most Disruptive Entrepreneur,' not only delves into Grover's rise but also explores his experiences as a judge on Shark Tank India. The narrative is marked by controversy, media scrutiny, and social media buzz, making it a captivating and inspiring tale. In my review, 'Doglapan: The Hard Truth about Life and Start-Ups' emerges as a sincere and gripping account. Grover's writing style is refreshingly honest and free from pretense, showcasing his courage and resilience. The book provides a candid look at the highs and lows of his life and career, making it a truly inspiring read.

Lesson 1. Unstoppable Drive to Reach Your Goals Despite Life's Obstacles

You know that feeling. You've had it all your life. That drive to achieve, to be successful no matter what. You might have called it ambition, or maybe determination or hunger. But whatever you call it, you know that you can't live without it. That unstoppable hunger to succeed, no matter what life throws your way. It's what separates the successes from the also-rans, the champions from the also-rans.

It's what drives you to pick yourself up after a setback and keep going, even when all the odds are stacked against you. It's what makes you push yourself to the limit, even when you're tired and all you want to do is give up. For some, this hunger is easy to satisfy. They find a career they love and everything comes easy. But for most of us, it's not so simple. We face setbacks and obstacles at every turn. We're constantly tested by life, by others, by our own doubts and fears.

Ashneer describes in the book's introductory chapters how his upbringing was nothing short of difficult, how his grandparents felt the effects of Partition, and how his family toiled arduously to create success from nothing. Ashneer had his fair share of challenges in life, but he still made the decision to rise like a phoenix and prevail in it. Whether it was obstacles he faced at IIT and IIM, suffered betrayal by his own co-founders at BharatPe. He felt lost and insecure after leaving his job at AmEx to join Grofers only to work at a derogatory low salary, and almost missed a near-death experience in 2008 Taj Attacks. 

When things get tough and they will, because that's simply the nature of life, it's natural to lose sight of our goals. The obstacles in our way seem insurmountable, and we wonder how we'll ever make it to the other side. It's during these tough times that it's essential to shift your perspective. Instead of looking at your current situation, start thinking about how you'll feel once you've overcome it. Picture yourself on the other side of whatever you're struggling with, and let that motivate you to keep going.

Yes, it's easy to give up when things get tough. But it's those who keep pushing forward in the face of adversity who eventually reach their goals.
