Parag Pendharkar works as Director of Quality Assurance for CAD Software. He has also worked as an Automobile designer prior to his current Job. Parag likes to indulge in creative activities such as painting and photography. He is associated with recreational marathon runners in Pune. He is yet to realize the dream of running an Ultra Marathon. Parag feels that adventure is a vital ingredient that adds spice to a dull aimless life. He has lost more than 10 friends to various climbing/ adventure accidents and he felt indebted to write a book. His book is for the common men, who yearn to escape the warped view of success. He feels that, this may help an average individual to introspect and appreciate smaller successes that makes him/her stand apart from a rat race. It is to motivate individuals set personal challenges or seek alternative growth path, when they hit a mental block.
