I felt as if I have traveled so much in this book as the experiences are covered from across continents. Extremely interesting read and definitely informative based on personal experiences and observations. Having spent a few years in London, I was able to relate to the author's stance on so many issues.

Very nice book, as a parent, even though I am not an NRI, there were a lot of takeaways for me.:)
A very clever retelling and a lot fun to read too! It is not easy to adapt something like Mahabharat in context that is contemporary and yet still manage to retain the primary essence of the tale.
Great job! Capturing the essence of the epic with corporate life and told with humour

Treat for the eyes....
'You are in real, real danger’ – a school teacher gets a creepy warning in his mailbox. Seven days later, he massacres eleven of his own students. Two months later, he is gunned down in broad daylight by an obscure militant outfit.
Justice served. The nation pacified. Case closed, the police say. But, two crime reporters think otherwise.
Seeking redemption through this case are Prakash and Seema, ace journalists in their professional lives, but broken individuals in the darkness of their personal hells. As they dig deeper into the mystery, they are led into the ominous forests of Bandhavgarh where an eerily similar massacre had occurred eight years ago.
Little do they know that they have kicked a wasp’s nest.
One by one their leads start turning up in body bags and they are chased by assassins at every corner. Soon they would realize that they are pitted against evil powers pervading the business and political DNA of the country, with an unbelievably sinister agenda.
As a massive terrorist strike looms over the nation, will Prakash and Seema survive long enough uncover a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions?

Fifteen-years ago, a young AYESHA met VIKRAM and fell in love. But even before she could explore her new-found feelings, their paths took different turns, seemingly never to meet again. Now 34, she is convinced her unspoken first love is beyond her conscious mind. She has carefully built a perfect world around her that includes a dream career and a smart, successful man as a partner.
Vikram, now an Indian Army Major, finds himself missing his first love when he chances upon an old photograph. Fifteen years ago he never got to express his feelings. Now, older and wiser, he knows life is too fickle to wait for perfect moments and he resolves to find Ayesha.
Torn between her past and present, Ayesha tries stay detached when they rekindle their friendship. But when they both discover their love hadn't been unrequited, their emotions overcome better senses and they share a passionate moment. Guilt creeps into Ayesha's being and they decide to part ways yet again. Later, when Rohan proposes marriage in front of her family, she accepts.
An old friend, goads Ayesha to rethink her relationships. But, before she can take a decision, Vikram disappears from her life yet again. Dismayed and even angry, Ayesha tries to accept fate, only to realize her heart continues to beat for Vikram.
Unbeknownst to Ayesha, Vikram is away on a classified mission. A month later, he returns to the news of her engagement. Disheartened, and wanting Ayesha's happiness, he withdraws away from her, never learning of her break-up with Rohan. While seemingly fickle and indifferent in the past, their destinies bring them together once more. Forced into a confrontation, their anger, fears and ego ultimately give way to the passionate love they hold for each other. But are Vikram and Ayesha now ready to go beyond their anger and egos, and act on what fate had planned for them all along?
The Pandavas have returned home after 13 years of exile. And they are demanding their stake in Hastinapur Inc. But the Kauravas, led by the haughty Duryodhana, aren’t ready to give them a penny. The battle lines are drawn, only this war is in the present-day Kurukshetra - the corporate boardroom.
As the Kauravas and the Pandavas don their sharpest suits, Krishna - the wily Consultant - strategies for peace. This is a humorous, modern take on the Mahabharata (with due apologies to Rishi Ved Vyas). An epic story retold for the MBA generation.
