Varun is a fresh engineering graduate & like most of them he's unable to land up in a dream job so he thoughts of entrepreneurship as the ideal path. The book revolves around issues that the two friends face to make the idea survive & shares their hand-on experience of facing parents in times of such crisis ;) & the irritating Anu Aunty, who has an uncanny resemblance to those constant nagging devils that we come across many a times during our growing years, who keep praising their own kids & shoving other's achievements like a filthy affair. "How I braved..." is a must read for anyone who's looking towards the enthralling path of founding a company & making ideas work, with a small investment but an amazingly brilliant idea to make the journey worth trying for.

The Book is written in a beautifully captivating manner & believe me you won't be able to take any kinds of break in between & those precious hours would be blissful. The book has some romance sequences between Varun & his dream girl ; nightmares that the two friends face while waiting for the shirt orders & the happiness that lights up their lives once their idea of staring Alma mater takes shape. A start-up where Varun & Rohn try & make sweatshirts & customized goodies to students who want to take their alma mater with them & carry on the pride forever. Some cool tit-bits that you would learn from the awesome Varooon... (the way Anu aunty calls out for the Gujju boy ! :) ) A journey weaved with a great sense of assurance ! Alma mater was the brain child of Varun who without any kind of silver spoon made entrepreneurship seem so viable for a normal guy/girl next door with a zeal to achieve what they desire.

From the Author : One of Agarwal’s major struggles was fighting his own insecurities about failure and what was expected of him. “If you want to be a carpenter, be a carpenter. Be what you want because at the end of the day you don’t want to end up living somebody else’s life,” he says.
