Description

About the Book

While the rest of the world has taken great strides in mainstreaming the differently abled into the larger contours of their society, life continues to be an uphill struggle for the differently-abled in India. They continue to be burdened with their 'handicapped' status and live a life on the fringes, largely forgotten by a society which is galloping ahead at a fast pace. Born 'different' from the rest of us, they have been put in a position of disadvantage in a world where being 'normal' is at such a premium.Written by the bestselling author of Legacy and Leading Ladies, Sudha Menon, and the MD of SAP Labs India, V.R. Ferose, Gifted celebrates the journeys of these very Indians who are neither CEOs nor part of any influential power clubs, but special in their own way. These are stories that can inspire even the most 'abled' among us.

About the Author

Sudha Menon is the author of two bestselling nonfiction books, Leading Ladies: Women Who Inspire India, and Legacy, a compilation of letters from inspirational Indian men and women to their daughters. She is a former newspaper journalistand is currently a columnist. Sudha is the founder of Get Writing!, a writing workshop that she set up to help people kick start their writing journey and is founder of Writing In the Park, an initiative to get people to explore their creativity while writing in public parks and gardens. Sudha is a TEDx speaker and often speaks at educational institutions and corporate campuses about women's leadership and diversity issues. Meeting the people she interviewed and wrote about in Gifted made her realize the immense potential and promise that each of us carry within us. Some of us manage to tap that well deep within us to bring out our best while some go through life without the faintest idea of who we can really be. Having met the people in Gifted, she is determined to live her life to the fullest, just as they do.

V.R. Ferose is Senior Vice President and Head of Globalization Service for SAP AG and former Managing Director of SAP Labs India. Deeply sensitive to the unequal world in which we live, Ferose founded the 'India Inclusion Summit', a unique platform that focuses on the need for inclusion in our lives. He is a Director on the Board of Specialist People Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation with the goal to create one million jobs globally for people with autism and is on the panel of 'The Vision Group on Information Technology', Government of Karnataka. He is also co-founder of the Karnataka chapter of Global Shapers, which works to create leadership among the youth. For his professional accomplishments, commitment to society, and potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world, Ferose was honored as a 'Young Global Leader' in March 2012 by the World Economic Forum. In a study published by the Economic Times and Spencer Stuart, Ferose was selected as one of the leaders in 'Indian's Top 40 under 40', 2014. This study is considered to be India's most authentic leadership study and it lists 40 extraordinary business leaders under the age of 40.
