I picked this book just to see how they reached where they are today and to understand what it takes for someone to get so good and amazingly consistent across so many properties which is their hallmark!!

It is indeed a fascinating tale which truly starts in when Rai Bahadur thought of applying for a job by taking the test for the PWD Power and Works Department , which was the first test he ever took and failed to clear leading him to a different career path which became his destiny.
His "hotel" journey started after getting awestruck with Cecil's Shimla and deciding to work only there because it made such a huge impression on him!! He applied for a job there after failing the PWD test but was clearly told that there are no vacancies which did not deter him at all as he waited patiently for the manager to go home for lunch, and impresses him with his perfect tie knot and impeccable manners to score a job tracking coal supplies in the Cecil hotel, and thus started the career of the man who will later go on to own many hotels much bigger than the one where he started off :- The story goes through history as it coincides with India's growth too and the author beautifully draws lovely parallels that bring a smile to your face and make the biography read like a novel.
I would like to quote just one such paragraph from the book: "The effects of Spencer and Coa neglect of AHI had to be reversed. Flashmans at Rawalpindi required a new wing. Maidens in Delhi needed funds to get back its former glory. Its predicament was not unlike that of three young women, who decades earlier, had come out East, stayed in the hotel and, caught up in Delhi's blandishments, overshot their budget.
They were forced to send a telegram to their parents: Send money or can remain maidens no more!! View 2 comments. Sep 02, Trishna Damodar rated it it was amazing. Forever inspiring!

Dare to dream is a must read for every hotellier around the world and for every person who has ever stayed in a hotel. Sep 16, Manish rated it it was amazing. First, I love the Oberoi hotel chain when I have visited India.
Reading this though really made me respect the dynasty even more. Oberoi as their doting dad. I loved this book and almost feel part of its rich history more. Oct 20, Garima rated it it was amazing. From Mohan Singh to Rai Bahadur, from a clerk to a the biggest hotelier in India, this is the story of an undying fire of ambition, unceasing pursuit of an aim.
It speaks of incessant hard work, unending hours, still without losing his humility, his kindness. This is a great read not only for entrepreneurs, but for every one of us. His life is a lesson in From Mohan Singh to Rai Bahadur, from a clerk to a the biggest hotelier in India, this is the story of an undying fire of ambition, unceasing pursuit of an aim.
