Telegram This book is a result of one of the most recent and big business success story in India. And maybe the biggest in the upcoming retail segment. The book It Happened in India has been written in an autobiographical format by Kishore Biyani, the person behind Pantaloon and the Future group. Written in the first person, it is interspersed by what others have to say about Kishore. Broadly it talks about the journey of Kishore from a middle-class business family living in South Bombay to where he is today. And the various experiments that he did during this journey to reach where he is today.

Through out the book he mentioned about his experiences about Indian market and how he applied different strategies to be successful. Big Bazzar was constructed keeping in mind the Indian mentality. We consider shopping as societal gathering.
There are many books written by foreign authors about retail industry, but what Kishorji said is absolutely right that you need to understand the mentality of people in the area to run your business successfully. Kishor Biyani correctly guessed the need of Indian consumers. He studied their mentality and their approach towards buying. He is a strong believer of win-win-win situation.
He believed in giving the liberty to take decision to people who are working with him. The liberty was given to all the people in the hierarchy. Employees are allowed to make mistakes and also to learn from them. Kishorji had tremendous faith in himself as well in people working with him. The book also sheds light on style and philosophy of KB; in fact the book reveals journey toward formation of his business empire: Future Group.
Flow of the book is fairly good; thanks to its co-author Dipayan Baishya, who is a business writer. Many comments are in the nature of self-praise; one of the best points that emerge from the book is a reiteration of having superior human relationships as one needs to deal with people in the end customers.

The book should be available in all vernacular languages so that everyone can read and understand it better.
