In the Aravind experience I see the path that we need to take — a transformation of life into a powerful instrument of right action’ — Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Former President of India
In 1976, Dr Govindappa Venkataswamy founded Aravind, an 11-bed eye clinic in south India, with no money, business plan or safety net. Dr V was 58 years old at the time, and over the next three decades his humble clinic would defy the odds to become the largest provider of eye care in the world. Aravind has now treated over 32 million patients and performed over 4 million surgeries, the majority for free. Its business model is emulated everywhere from Tanzania to the United States, and a case study on Aravind’s work is mandatory reading for every MBA student at Harvard Business School. Going far beyond typical business analysis, this book dives deep into the heart and mind of one of the most phenomenal visionaries of our time. Its narrative will appeal to a diverse audience — ranging from management students and corporate leaders to social entrepreneurs and lay readers seeking an inspiring tale. Infinite Vision tells an unforgettable story … one that has lit the eyes of millions.
