BIG DREAMS, BIGGER REALITIES

By Neel Anil Panicker
The first decade of his life, Mukund had only one dream: to live in a house with a toilet. His memories of this ramshackle period of his childhood were all about being rudely woken up by mother, and then hurriedly being rushed outside. There he would squat in the rat infested open fields alongside his brothers.
By that time he turned 25, his dream had grown_ a villa by the sea.
Before he hit 40, he was mulling buying the 1,441 room 17th century Schonbrunn Palace.
At ten billion dollars, it was loose change for the ‘Steel King’ of India.
