These books are my way of looking at various aspects of entrepreneurship. I have drawn my perspective from some fundamentals of business and management, self-belief, real-world experiences and failures. It's an attempt to bring you closer to a whole new way of looking at situations & challenges that you may face, with an honest and a broader perspective, something that lived deep inside you but never came to the surface. It's an attempt to bring you closer to… You.
These aren't guides that will transform you overnight. They are certainly not about giving solutions to all the problems you would face during your entrepreneurial journey; the idea is to help you find answers yourself. It is about empowering you to build and deepen your own ideologies.

I read your book and quite frankly I haven't come across a more interesting and absorbing book in recent years. Your style of narration is indeed awesome. The knowledge and wisdom you display are not in proportion to your age. I can boldly say it's a must-read for all those who would like to gain some insight into today's business needs. The book is unputdownable. I am ordering more for distributing to my friends.Consultant, Corporate Communication Head
It's not often that one talks about where they slipped up only to pick and run again. But, Rajive Dhavan is not your typical dyed in the wool entrepreneur. Quiet and unassuming, you may miss him in a noisy crowd - but you can spot his resolve a mile away. This evening, i got reading his book, STFU and a few pages later, i realised that why he succeeded in the advertising business with ethics intact. More of it when I complete the book.Marketing Head, Apollo Hospitals
