Three crucial forces that have been almost equally responsible for shaping humancivilization so far. Yet, the politics of empire has dominated history and populardiscussion. Irrespective of the political upheavals, however, India has always been anopen market-welcoming traders from faroff lands, promising them a fair bargain.

Indian entrepreneurs since ages had developed their own sophisticated institutions andwide communitybased networks. This open, liberal and robust 'bazaar economy'thrived unhindered till the advent of European trading companies, who brought withthem the notions of monopoly and state controls. Business in India blossomed in tunewith liberal religious thought and Indian intellectual tradition always fostered the spirit ofquestioning.

Told through a medley ofstories, this is the saga of India's socioeconomic power that has characterized not onlythe country's vibrant pluralistic society but also much of global history. An untoldnarrative of India's geographies, products and pioneers this is an unforgettable albumof heroes, who championed game-changing ideas at the intersection of faith andenterprise.
