About this Book - Doglapan is the unfettered story of Ashneer Grover - the favourite and misunderstood poster boy of Start-up India. Raw, gut-wrenching in its honesty and completely from the heart, this is story telling at its finest.  

From the Book - 

I couldn't believe my ears. After all I, a Delhi-born boy to Delhi­ born parents, was being referred to as a refugee formally, for the first time in my adult life; that too, by none other than my would­ be in-laws. This was in 2003, a full fifty-six years after my grand­ parents had landed in Delhi, from Multan district in Pakistan, af­ ter Partition. No marks for guessing that it was meant not as a statement of fact but as a reminder of aukaat for a service-class Punjabi who had won the heart of their most beloved Baniya 'Jain' daughter, who came from a business family. It's another matter that this rather persistent refugee went on to attend the most premier educational institutes, landed a plumjob and eventually won the family's heart and their daughter's hand.

The original refugees in question, namely my paternal grand­ parents, were allotted a 200-guz plot in Malviya Nagar, a refugee colony, when they landed in Delhi with their siblings and chil­ dren in tow.It was on this plot that six independent floors, of 100 guz each,were built.Out of these,house number 90/20, popu­ larly known as 'Nabbe Bees',was to later become my home ad­ dress for the longest time.

As a child, I remember pestering my grandmother to tell me stories of their lives back in Multan. I loved to see the twinkle in her eye as she reminisced about the past and spoke at length about their fields or khet, as she referred to them. The one story that she would always tell me was about how, if the entire khet had to be covered on foot, one would need to leave early in the morning, and even then one would only be back the next day.In turn, I would eggher on with, 'Haan haan, aap tohfas al bate hue jaate the aur kat-te hue aate the (Of course, you would sow the seeds on your way up and harvest the produce on your way back).' Growing up,the story stayed with me as a great reminder of the fact that even when that 200-guz house replaced the large expanse of their fields, it did little to dampen their spirits.In fact, thev never recounted the horror of Partition-just fond memories of the past life.

About the Author - Indian businessman Ashneer Grover is the former co-founder and managing director of the Indian fintech company BharatPe. Grover also appears as an investor on the reality TV show Shark Tank India.



A young boy with a 'refugee' tag growing up in Delhi's Malviya Nagar outpaces his circumstances by becoming a rank-holder at the pinnacle of academic excellence in India-IIT Delhi.



He goes on to do an MBA from the hallowed halls of IIM Ahmedabad, builds a career as an investment banker at Kotak Investment Banking and AmEx, and is pivotal in the making of two unicorns-Grofers, as CFO, and BharatPe, as co-founder.


As a judge on the popular TV show Shark Tank India, Ashneer becomes a household name even as his life turns upside down. Controversy, media spotlight, garrulous social media chatter descend, making it difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.
