True leaders don’t create followers. They create more leaders, and let them shine.
That’s one lesson Rishabh Shah learnt after he founded I.I.M.U.N. (India’s International Movement to Unite Nations) in 2011. Now, as the world’s largest youth-run organisation, they work with thousands of young people across 220 cities in India and over 35 countries, to put together concourses for school children. The aim is to sensitise leaders of tomorrow about the world, from the Indian lens.
I.I.M.U.N. is creating leaders, without creating noise.
This book documents Rishabh’s rollercoaster journey of reaching out to some of the most powerful people in India, without any ‘connections’. Breaking through their carefully-crafted media image, the book details how he opened the door to some of India’s real life influencers, and how they actually are as people.
Read his experience as he meets and learns from luminaries like Mohan Bhagwat, Rahul Gandhi,
Dr Subramaniam Swamy, Late Pranab Mukherjee, PT Usha, Late Gen Bipin Rawat, Deepak Parekh, Karan Johar, AR Rahman and Syed Akbaruddin.
Sharing never heard before real-life anecdotes, as an impressionable young adult who didn’t have the baggage of being known, Rishabh has unknowingly, and sometimes deliberately been imparted a lot of leadership and life lessons. These numerous closed door engagements with the mentioned luminaries will sometimes teach you what to do, and so also, what not to do.
This book is useful for those wanting to understand the centrist school of thought – that one can learn from everyone. For those who want to learn leadership, those looking for inspiration to break the word impossible, or for those who are simply looking to build their own network – come discover, Nothing but the Truth!
