Pan Asian Media in June 2014 published a non-fiction book, The Visionaries: Extraordinary Stories of the UAE’s Economic Miracles Through The Eyes of Indian Visionaries – which is available at all the major bookstores. The 440-page hard-bound book is a celebration of entrepreneurship in the UAE – a country that has given birth of so many entrepreneurs. The book compiles business profiles of 32 extraordinary entrepreneurs and their life struggle to overcome the odds.
The Visionariesalso tries to explain the economic miracle of the UAE that has transformed itself to a major economic powerhouse within the span of just 50 years – from a collection of a few fishing settlements in the 1960s.
