Indians Who Had Failed but Are Now Inspirational Success Stories


After we face multiple failures we think maybe it is not our cup of tea. But here are some Indian failures who never gave up and worked hard to become the inspirational stories they are.

Here is the list of Indian failures who are now inspirational success stories.

Mahatma Gandhi

He is the most influential story in the history. He was essentially a barrister in India by profession. However, he was not a strong lawyer as he was ineffectual in cross-questioning his witnesses. He went to South Africa where Mahatma Gandhi developed his political skills. It was never easy for him there or here in India with his Satyagraha movement and the biggest failures for him was the partition of India and Pakistan.

Amitabh Bachchan

For the world, the blockbuster performer has always been on peaks but his career had tanked along with his production house, named Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd. (ABCL). He never gave up even during the phase of bankruptcy. With the KBC series, he was able to rise to the top again. He truly reached his peaks with the respect that he earned with skills and determination.

Ratan Tata

He became the chairman in the year 1991 and had a giant task before him. He had futuristic views and liberal attitude which did not work well with some of the top management levels at Tata resulting into a rough patch. In the beginning itself, two of his companies faced bankruptcy. The faith of his employees in him also wavered as he brought the retirement age down from 70 to 65. However, even with all the failure, he was determined to rise is a global figure even today.

Narendra Modi

Everyone knows his journey started from being a chai vendor and now becoming India’s Prime Minister. When he became Chief Minister of Gujarat he rose high but he had a lack of experience. He was highly tested during the Godhra violence and most still blame him for the riots. But his name was cleared and he went on to become the most powerful individual in the country.

Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi

For a cricketer, strong reflexes, stamina and the capability to see are his assets. Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was a cricketer since childhood. He permanently damaged one of his eyes in a road accident. He could see a doubled image. However, he never gave up. He was scared that he lost his cricket career but he still managed to return to the field with one eye. And until today he is considered to be the greatest Indian captain ever.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

He was born to a poor farmer family in UP. He initially worked as a chemist in a petrochemical company. He wanted something interesting and he moved to Delhi only to become a watchman. His interest in theatre developed and then moved to Mumbai to try his luck in the movies. He kept appearing in small roles just like any other struggler actors. To earn some money he started conducting acting worksjops. But with his break as a reporter in Peepli Live gave him incredible rise and he no more looks back.
