BOOK REVIEW: How I Braved Anu Aunty & Co-Founded A Million Dollar Company by Varun Agarwal

How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded A Million Dollar Company by Varun Agarwal is a compelling and humorous account of the fulfilment of entrepreneurial dreams.

How does an unfocused young person such as Varun Agarwal, become the co-founder of a million dollar company? How does he get pesky Anu Aunty off his trail? The book is an interesting real-life story of how the author, Varun Agarwal, managed to brave all odds to reach the peak of his career.

Varun Agarwal is shown to be an unfocused human being, with no real interest in pursuing a career, even though he does harbour dreams of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Varun whiles away his time, hopping from pub to pub, spending time with friends and keeping a track of his love interest on Facebook.

These traits worry his mother to the bone, compelling her to put the very meddlesome Anu Aunty on the job, to help get her son moving in the right direction in life. Anu Aunty does a rather good job of this, much to Varun's dismay. He then does all that he can to get her off his track, while pursuing his dreams to become an entrepreneur.

BOOK REVIEW:- The story revolves around the protagonist Varun, who dont want to do what everyone is doing. His uncle used to say that, "you are disappointing. No job,then no MBA ,and id no MBA ,then no wife".

Do you remember those times when as a kid,if you had any special talent,your parents would parade you infront of guests and make you display your talent and get some sick pleasure out of it?

When you're jobless,the pace of time becomes very slow.Like excruciatingly slow,Varun was getting more and more addicted to facebook and that had become a serious problem.

He had created a rough plan of the business idea during my jobless days and was desperate to get Mal involved to set the ball rolling.

In India,it is ritual that if one lady cries,any other lady present near her has to show solidarity by crying with her.Thus,when my mum unleashed the first few droplets,Anu Aunty's eyes got wet as well.

I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.A book that you can connect with.
