Google is one of the dream companies of many starry-eyed individuals across the globe. Everyone wants to be landing a job at a place famous for its inclusive culture and workspace. Then why would any person in his right senses leave the decent-paying job to sell samosas? The guy behind the famous The Bohri Kitchen did this to discover himself and live his dreams.

How I Quit Google to Sell Samosas by Munaf Kapadia is an interesting and motivating tale of a man who left behind a secured future to venture into a land of uncertainties. What started off as a fight between a mother and her son for a television remote turned into a full-fledged business opportunity. Through this book, Munaf sells the idea of leaving behind inhibitions, take risks, and go out there to get what one’s heart wants.

Kapadia laid the foundation of The Bohri Kitchen to leverage his mother’s culinary skills to provide a home dining experience to the customers. With a unique proposition, his intent was to put out his Bohri food culture in front of the world. This book covers how he went about the idea including moments of success as well as disappointments. His entrepreneurial stint taught him a lot about surviving and thriving. As Kapadia embraced his little moments of happiness, we feel the glint in his words.

This book speaks for Kapadia’s honesty and genuity as he lays bare his struggles and vulnerabilities. His journey to feature on the front cover of Forbes ’30 Under 30′ is equal parts inspiring and fascinating. I could see myself pulled into the story because of how authentic it is. No gloss. No preaching. Simple actions, And genuine intent. The writing is as engaging as Kapadia’s story of building his story from the scratch. I think what most people would love about this story is its ending that is not an end, really. It leaves one with passion and hope. Something we need the most in the journey of realising our dreams.

If you’re looking for that nudge to get started on that dream of yours you pushed behind, pick up this book. Get those Samosa Gyaans. You’ll be duly rewarded 🙂
