Raju Menon’s trajectory can be traced from his childhood in the green, pristine villages of Kerala, to the remarkable empire he has built in Dubai as the Founder of the Kreston Menon Group, one of the leading audit and business consultancy firms in the region.
As he takes a look at the world from atop the gleaming, iconic Burj Khalifa, and pens down his thoughts that would later take the shape of this book, his heart is filled with overwhelming gratitude to God and his parents, and the nostalgic story of how he got here.
The View from My Perch is not just a personal biography, but it steps beyond its own generic limits to become an inspiring tale for diligent youth who want to reach great heights. As one reads through Raju Menon’s journey, one cannot but be fascinated by the way he has broken down his life into various phases, each representing a struggle and a step towards his destination.
“A masterpiece that will be picked up by aspiring entrepreneurs and passionate readers, this book is the legacy of a businessman, a family man, and a glorious human being.”
Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Electronics & Information Technology Government of India
