■ JAIPUR, INDIA: Whilst sitting on a pavement with a few hours to left before a grueling bus journey, a young Indian shoeshine boy wandered by an offered to fix my decrepit shoes. He asked for 20 rupees which is about $0.24. The entrepreneurial spirit of the people of India is incredible. Especially at the grassroots level where it is allowed to flourish more freely than at the top. Whenever I run into such people I always make sure they know their business acumen and struggle is truly appreciated. So was he able to repair my shoes? What did they look like afterwards and how much did he earn?
