Swish! Goes the drain water as it flows on the littered grounds of the Dharavi slum. The slum is filthy and full of trash and houses constructed an inch apart. To sum it up it is revolting and foul. Sadly, hundreds of thousands of people call this place home. Among these people, there is a man named Rakesh Nemari he works 12 hours a day in a Biscuit Factory to earn money. Rakesh dreams of being a CEO of a colossal technology company and is willing to go to any extent to attain his goal.

In addition, he wanted to have a sense of how business works as he had no prior experience in this field. He expeditiously worked up the ranks in the factory and became a director within no time. Now Rakesh had a choice to make him could either continue like this and have a mediocre life or take the risk and try to go big. Rakesh really wanted to try and go big but, a tingling sensation in the back of head wanted him to stay safe and be felicitous with what he got. Rakesh unsure of what to do consulted his friends, they all said he had no chance and to be complacent with he got. Rakesh got enraged because they didn't believe in him. At the end that was what finally convinced to take the risk.


Rakesh then proceeded to buy himself a computer and some other items he needed. He started off learning to code as that is vital in becoming a CEO.

He could see his dream of becoming a reality. Rakesh spent 10 months at Dell and like at the Factory he went up the ranks swiftly. He soon became a Vice-President and learned lots.


Rakesh got an offer to become president but rejected. Even though Rakesh wanted to become a CEO and becoming president would help him do that he felt like he didn't deserve it. Reason being that he didn't make a company himself and start from the ground up. He felt like he had copied someone's homework. He then resigned and went to start his own company. Here is where he faced a bunch of problems. He first decided to make an office and hire employees. After a few months, he got a couple of hundred employees and an office to work at. He then had to decide what he was even going to do. He then settled upon doing AI and constituting Video Games. Throughout his journey, Rakesh had many hurdles one of the most significant ones being advertisement and marketing.

Eventually, through experience and time, he got a decent amount of people and companies using his games and AI. Rakesh kept on working and working and eventually they got very big. Now Rakesh was worth 10 Billion dollars and was one of the biggest CEOs on the planet.
