 Inspiration AND Dream Makers

A candidate for a news broadcasters post was
rejected by officials since his voice was not fit
for a news broadcaster. He was also told that
with his obnoxiously long name, he would never be

He is Amitabh Bachan.

A small boy - the fifth amongst seven siblings of a
poor father, was selling newspapers in a small
to earn his living. He was not exceptionally smart at
school but was fascinated by religion and rockets.
The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that
he built crashed multiple times and he was made
a butt of ridicule.

He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey
of India single-handedly Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.


In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole
Opry, Fired a singer after one performance.
He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You
ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

He went on to become Elvis Presley.


In the 1940s, another young inventor named ChesterCarlson took his idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country.

They all turned him down. In 1947 after seven long years of rejections,He finally got a tiny company in Rochester, New York,
the Haloid company, to purchase the rights to his
invention an electrostatic paper-copying process.
Haloid became Xerox Corporation.


In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book
Modelling Agency told modelling hopeful Norma Jean
Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else
get married."

She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.
