Celebrating Failure - A Book by Dhruv Avdhesh on 'Doing What We Love'

We all have read or heard enough about books and stories of people celebrating success. Haven't we?

But in the legendary Bill Gates' words, "It's fine to celebrate success but it's more important to heed the lessons of failure." Success is something passive where as Failure is something that invokes an action.

India's first book that brings into limelight the story of 15 sung and mostly unsung heroes who celebrated failure by doing what they love.

The world is slowly arriving at a point where people are not happy with their lives. The stress levels are at an all time high which also gives rise to heinous crimes.  The nine to five jobs are no longer an option. According to the National Employability Report, 80% of engineers in India aren't employable in any sector of knowledge economy.

What's the solution? #DoWhatYouLove!

About the Author:

Dhruv follows curiosity over passion and he loves to make friends with stress. A chain reaction is what drives him crazy and beware, he asks tons of questions. Moreover, he personally believes in the idea that there is no scheduled time for anything and magic happens when we step out of our comfort zone. The motto of his life is to do what he loves and hence be happy!

Personal Story:

An academic achiever till class X. Did not score good marks in class XII, up to the expectations of his parents. Cleared JEE (Advanced) for admission into IITs but did not qualify for an admission in computer related fields. Joined Delhi Technological University (formerly Delhi College of Engineering) in 2014. Failed in three subjects straight in the first semester. Figured out that academics did not bring happiness. Started doing what he loved - building websites and other technical projects. Thrown out of a full time internship saying lack of talent, inability to produce desired results and low productivity. Currently in the third year of Mathematics & Computing Engineering and simultaneously working with Microsoft and TEDxTughlaqRd (India’s biggest TEDx event).

Have successfully completed building 19 websites and 26 technical projects in total. 6 internships completed and 6 positions of responsibility held. Proud recipient of Pragya Chakshu Award and International Award for Young People.

Now, trying to do something larger than life. Looking forward to spreading the message of #DoWhatYouLove through the book. Failing at petty exams is not the end. Broken relationships is not the end. Not getting an internship or a job in your dream company isn't the end. Being bankrupt isn't the end. One should never give up on their dreams, what they always wanted to do when they were young. Let it be entrepreneurship, dancing, singing, acting, comedy, sports - anything.
