About the Book :

Simply Fly is an autobiography of Captain G R Gopinath. This wonderful true story, which can easily give any Bollywood flick a run for their money, narrates the life of a village boy. Isn’t it out of this world to read the life and story of a boy who, in his childhood, used to ride bullock cart and went on to own an airline? This is a story of an army man turned businessman, who launched India’s first cheap airline – Air Deccan. This story recounts the unpleasant facts of a Captain Gopinath, who left Indian Army in late 1970s and started farming. A piece of land owned by him was flooded with rain water, and then he took the pains to turn that barren land into a fertile patch and sown the seeds of ecologically sustainable silkworms.The autobiography beautifully tells how a man’s passion, perseverance and strong willpower make him extraordinary from ordinary.

A very inspiring and motivating book in recent times. What i like the best about the book is it's rich indian connect in every page,including the scenic and picteresque descriptions of tourist places from up in the air, that makes it even more interesting. The farming days of Captain and his life at the Army breathes life into the soul of the book.As we read of his farming experiences and his saga from being a novice farmer to an excellent business magnate, it is sure to captivate and inspire the hearts of the readers without an iota of doubt. It's a must read for every youngster of this era in order to pursue a dream and making it a reality.
