Prominent author, a narrator, and thinker Nisaar Nadiadwala, would be occupied in jotting down the memoirs of well-known entrepreneur Ansif Ashraf. The duo has concluded that Ansif’s struggle and achievements can be highly motivating for youth from the perspective of business-building.
The book will be very different in its theme and presentation, a typical Nisaar’s style who has written many career-oriented notes for the youth. Ansif has a story to tell and Nisaar is a storyteller, thus making the combination, a branch of corporate literature.
There may be thousands of books on success stories in the corporate gallery, but, ‘Don’t be Like Your Father’ will stand out with its own identity. It will be focusing on how a young lad with fiery spirit of enthusiasm can build an empire out a small warehouse of his ancestors. The book will not be a “how to do series” nor will it be a fairy tale like a story that ends with, ‘and they all lived happily ever after’ but a series of not giving up in spite of falling down. “Every fall brings an opportunity to leap forward, ” states Nisaar Nadiadwala who himself has come up a very toiling life.
Though he belongs to a business family, Nisaar is also related to prominent Bollywood producers the Nadiadwalas who have been producing films for 60 years and Sajid Nadiadwala being the latest of the lot. A journalist by heart and a thinker by pen, Nisaar loves to write about interesting people and paints a word portrait of people who influence the trends. Right from his early days as an assistant writer to senior editors of Gujarati media, Nisaar wrote fascinating feature stories on human-interest subjects. He has a sense of news and can smell a story the moment he meets a person. “Every human is a story in himself and the best story is the one which can be told in a most eloquent manner,” assures Nisaar Nadiadwala.
“ I have grown up reading the master pieces of Indian authors and always wanted to tell the world about other fellow human being in a gentle manner. And that is what the real writing is all about,” says Nisaar Nadiadwala.
