Before, one is overtaken by the heap of time. There is need to reflect on this enthralling account of a ‘grassroots salesman.’ I could carve this fiction, only because of my enduring experience rooting out of my long career and the interesting and rare reveries. Of, some of my classy colleagues and business associates in the companies that, I worked for. Let me therefore extend my sincere thanks to all of them. The list is long but the space is limited hence I’m unable to mention their individual names. But they are etched in my heart, and also on, each and every milestone of my professional journey.
