Swamy was an unusual advertising professional. He was born in a humble background in a village near Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu India in 1922. The family's poverty made them move to Bombay in an effort to make a living. He was enrolled in a neighbourhood school where the primary language was Gujarati. As soon as he finished school he had to go looking for a job. His break into the world of advertising took place when he was given a temporary posting at J. Walter Thompson Eastern Limited as a translator from English to Gujarati in 1940. From thereon he became a self taught professional through sheer hard work. This book is for all young men and women who wish to take a peek at the origins of a leading Indian advertising and marketing services group. It is the story of a man who lifted himself and thousands of others up in life without compromising his values and standing tall and unwavering by the causes he held dear. 284 pp. Seller Inventory # 66412
