List of Indian 'Entrepreneurs' cum Authors

Hi, How have you been?Today, I am going to share with a list of the books authored by the Indian Entrepreneurs.
Very few entrepreneurs share their knowledge with the world through books, because not many possess the skills of writing.
Among those who share, mostly share it in the form of their Autobiographies, and I love them.
I hope you love the Auto-biographies too. Let's have a look at the list of the books authored by our beloved entrepreneurs and find if they have more to offer than just Auto-biographies.

A book is the closest friend of human, and therefore I would like to share with you the list of the books which can become your best friends in life, more likely if you are an aspiring entrepreneur like me.
I will keep on updating this article, with the more information, that I collect in future, so your suggestions are highly welcome to make this article more accurate and informative.
