For today's younger generation the mantra of success is - doing something which one enjoys or cherishes the most – making buzz all over. The only reason why this makes a huge difference with today's generation is because people of today's generation do not believe in getting over burdened with responsibilities which they cannot commit for and they follow their wish wholeheartedly with complete dedication. And this attitude of today's youngsters set the platform for the young entrepreneurs, who are willing to risk it all for their big dream and big idea for business.

On April 25, 2011 IIT Delhi witnessed the presence of Indian Telecom Mogul, Mr. Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman & group CEO of Bharti Enterprises. Speaking on the theme of the session ‘Dare to Dream' Mr. Mittal delved upon his own journey as a first generation entrepreneur. Talking about the initial days of his journey as an entrepreneur he spoke about how ‘creatively' he surmounted government license & permit raj and controls.

Building upon his image of an entrepreneur always willing to explore latest technological developments for commercial exploitation, he cited examples from his initial days of struggle when he explored opportunities offered by imported gadgets of that time. Adding to the list of technological innovations ascribed to him, he shared the long list of technological experiences that he brought to Indian consumers right from the first mobile generators imported from Japan to first telephone devices made in private sector in India.

Touching upon the topic of academia and industry interaction, he clamoured for very active academia-industry interaction conducive for the flow of knowledge both ways.

Realising the audience hunger about the Zain deal, Mr. Mittal shared his insights that went into his group taking over the African telecom operator. He also shared the foresights predicted by his strategy and finance team for the new member in the family. Entertaining the audience's questions, Mr. Mittal stated his never ending hunger for new challenges as the reason behind his very high energy levels and enthusiasm towards his work. Breaking the mould of glamorous high flying industrialist, he shared with the audience all the homework which went into the culmination of the Zain deal which involved even staying for days in almost uninhabitable areas of Africa.

As his concluding statement he advised young audience to pursue only and only what they like, what they feel passionate about. He quoted passion for their respective works as the most dominant trait of the most spectacularly successful people.
