By: Kapur, Devesh.
Contributor(s): Babu, D. Shyam | Prasad, Chandra Bhan.
Publisher: India Random House India 2014Description: xiv, 320 p.ISBN: 9788184005707.Subject(s): Dalits entrepreneurs | Entrepreneurship | Success in businessSummary: Defying the Odds is about the new Dalit identity. It pro­files the phenomenal rise of twenty-one Dalit entrepreneurs, the few who through a combination of grit, ambition, drive and hustle—and some luck—have managed to break through social, economic and practical barriers. It illustrates instances where adversity compensated for disadvantage, where working their way up from the bottom instilled in Dalit entrepreneurs a much greater resilience as well as a willingness to seize opportunities in sectors and locations eschewed by more privileged business groups. Traditional Dalit narratives are marked by struggle for identity, rights, equality and for inclusion. These inspiring stories capture both the diffi­culty of their circumstances as well as their extraordinary steadfastness, while bringing to light the possibilities of entrepreneurship as a tool of social empowerment.
