Idli - Orchid - Will Power!!

Huh did u jus say tht its some title!

Well well its no me thts come up with this... Its instead the autobiography of Vittal Kamat of the many scions of the famed Kamat Group! Now now me no fan of autobiographies at all.. Thank U v much. But on the hol to Amboli (I know thts one post which is long pending!) ~~ One v prominent eatery tht u could never miss there was the Vittal Kamats ~~ So on a hop stop there happened to flip thru this book .... N I was so hooked that well I ended up buying it!

The writing is lucid .... No fancy English here but more than that it didnt have larger-than-life image thats usually associated with books of such kind! Its the story of a man who with his simple out-of-box thinking n enterprising ways made it big in life! Sample one of these many instances.....

President of India was the guest at one of the kamat hotels n out of the blue he comes up with a request for Lassi! Now as luc would hv it that very moment the hotel mixer decides to go kaput.... But but does our Mr. Kamat accept defeat... Ofcouse not! He climbs atop  a tall table and poured the lassi onto a vessel from that height... N hat do we have... yoo slurping frothing slurpy lassi :).

This is jus one of the many such interesting snippets that pepper the book! This one aint any intellectual gem or a gr8 fiction ... Its jus what it advertises to be... The autobiography of a hotelier but with a lesson or two that we all would be better off picking up!
