I have always had a fascination for books that tell the real stories of personal and professional triumphs of their protagonists. I always find these books a notch above the ordinary. Reading such books, I feel strangely uplifted and inspired. Books that highlight the triumph of the human spirit against all odds always hold a special place in my heart. In this genre, one of my all-time favorites has been Lee Iacocca’s stirring autobiography.
Last week, I had an opportunity to read the biography of Nina Lekhi, an enterprising entrepreneur who has built a 100 crore company fueled by sheer grit and love. The book titled, “Bag it all”, comes from the stable of Rashmi Bansal’s Bushfire Publications.
I read the blurb and was attracted to read the book – Bag it all. I picked up the Bag it all book with the intention of reading a few pages and getting back to it later. I read the foreword and my interest was ignited and I read page after page and finished the Bag it all book in one sitting.
Bag It All-The Inspiring Story of Nina Lekhi & Baggit
This book, Bag it all is about the rise and rise of Nina Lekhi, a woman entrepreneur and the company Baggit which was started by her in the year 1990. The simple and lucid style of the book kept me riveted and I could actually feel a personal connect with the events and happenings described by Nina in the book.
The Bag it all book traces the growth and rise of Nina as a person as well as a successful entrepreneur right from her school days. The glimpses into her childhood and how her middle-class background and values coupled with events in her life only strengthened her determination to turn failures into success are narrated in a very endearing manner. As the scene shifts from childhood to adolescence, the seeds of creativity and enterprise blossom into a full blown idea with Nina creating the brand “Baggit”, at the tender age of 18!
The Bag it all book takes the reader on a captivating journey of human relationships, and dives deep into the life of Nina Lekhi as a student, as a young entrepreneur bubbling with energy and as a responsible wife and mother multi-tasking her way to success after success. The book also highlights how love and understanding can also transform a business. Though the book is the story of the resounding success of a businesswoman and her business Baggit, what is heartening, is that it is fully grounded and states complex realities of life and business in simple terms.
Another unique aspect of the book, as well as Nina’s life, is the internal transformation she herself undergoes owing to her practicing Siddha Samadhi Yoga. However, the strongest aspect of the book is that it is a great inspiration for men and women who dare to dream. The story of how a young girl starts by selling home stitched canvas bags and over the years transforms the business into an international brand – Bag it all is an inspirational story of a woman entrepreneur, Nina Lekhi who has built a 100-crore company – Baggit with the power of intent and love.
The journey of Nina Lekhi is by itself very engrossing, but what makes reading about it really absorbing, is the style of writing which brings the people and the events very close to the reader who has an almost immersive experience of sorts. The book is interspersed with little boxes titled learnings, which are brief gems of wisdom about life, management, and business. These by themselves are great pieces of motivation to be reflected upon and inculcated.
Bag it all is an inspirational and motivational story of a woman entrepreneur, Nina Lekhi who has built a 100-crore company – Baggit with the power of intent and love. Bag It All – The Inspiring Story of Nina Lekhi & Baggit.
I would recommend readers to read this book not only because it is a good read, but because there is a deeper inspirational current running through the book, which is truly transformational.
