Blurb of the book:
‘Legends of a Start-Up Guy’ is a tale of Ganesha. Ganesha is jovial, intelligent and the youngest in the family. A foodie by heart and laid back by nature, always looking for ways to make life easier. Despite being born to the all-powerful Shiva and Parvati, with Uncle Vishnu and aunts Lakshmi and Saraswati to back him at every point in life, he has to battle through many ups and downs to establish his individual identity, just like his accomplished brother, Skanda. Under layers of perfection, benevolence and jovial extravaganza was a young boy battling to be found for who he really was.
