The book is about the story of a young man who steps out of the precincts of IIT Kanpur in 1974 with a dream in his heart – to become an entrepreneur and contribute to nation-building. Undaunted by the dearth of experience and means to capital in pre-Liberalization India, B.V.R Mohan Reddy’s enterprising spirit takes the long and winding road, never losing sight of his ambition.
He gains overseas education on scholarship and dons multiple hats for eighteen long years before embarking on his life’s mission at forty. A mission that propels the company he incorporated, Cyient, to pioneer and excel in outsourced engineering services and introduce the brand ‘Engineered in India’.
‘Engineered in India’ takes readers on an entrepreneurial rollercoaster ride, allowing them to see human
truths with tools that let them breathe life into their business aspirations and experiments.

takes to ideate and scale a global enterprise. It also addresses the intangible dimensions of being an
entrepreneur in India as well as offers practical lessons in customer centricity, people management
and crisis management. My hope is to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to learn from my
journey, dream even bigger and engineer their own success.”
