Bombay Rains Bombay Girls Book Review


After reading all those overwhelming reviews about  the book all over the net, finally I’ve decided to buy Bombay Rains and Bombay Girls by Anirban Bose. After placing order through online store I’ve received the 450 odd pages of bulky book. which itself is discouraging to go through.

After learning that the author is a doctor and foreign returned (Like Chetan Bhagat), immediate response in my mind is that this book will suck. Controlling my negative feelings I’ve started reading the book. The first few pages really suck. Like these doctors prescription cannot be understood by anyone, the book contains all those greeky terminologies, words, complex sentences which required a dictionary to understand. I though he is showing off all his worldly English knowledge through this book.

But I continued reading (Because I’ve bought the book). Soon Anirban proved me wrong. As the story progressed and got the grip over the characters and story, the greeky words didn’t bother much in the flow of story and understanding it.

Like he stated in the acknowledgement, he really does have the skill to tell stories and even make it interesting. The story progress slowly without much excitements till climax. May be at that point the author realized that he has written lots of pages without coming to an end and publishers may refuse to publish it. So he hurriedly written the climax part with lots of events, turning points, excitements like any other bollywood movie. 

But what’s more interesting and attracted me is, the way Adi the lead character learns things through the experience. Every one come across lot of experiences in their life. But very few learn lessons from it, grow mature and adopt, make use of those learning's in their real life. The letters to female lead character Isha reveals how sensitive he is to the surroundings, his environment and people around.

If you can ignore the small mistakes, that is obvious for the first time writer, you can really enjoy the book. Definitely Bombay rains, Bombay girls is not just a light read. Go grab Buy Bombay Rains Bombay Girls from Flipkart.com and enjoy reading it.  They have a special discount for the book and also ships all over India. Many payment options including Cash on Delivery is available.

Nothing can be as Crazy.. Book Review


  • Book Title : Nothing Can be as crazy…
  • Author : Ajay Mohan Jain

  • Price : Rs. 95

Summery :

This book is about a guy called suresh a typical Indian service class man. His narration of part of his life as a banker. How he struggles in one of the banks as an officer. The typical office politics etc.

Review :

The story takes place in 70s and 80s. The story is narrated in a dairy style. Most of the description of the places and events makes you feel as you are reading a private dairy of the leading role. Except for few lengthy description of the places and it’s description, this book has a good story within.

The book also takes you the work environment in 70s and 80s. Specially the banking sector is portrayed as the leading character of this story is a bank employee. You also come across to learn about the life and lifestyles of some of the major cities of the country. The cities like Kolkata, Hyderabad etc. is described. It also portrays the lifestyle of yester year youths and their ambitions.

Over all the book is a light read, as this is the debut novel of the author may be he chose the light subject.

Finally there is a single system to Measure success


In my earlier post I was discussing about Talent Crunch. This post is in continuation with that.

In last few years the engineering and Management colleges pop-up in every nuke and corner of the country. The demand for Engineering and MBA increased like anything. The only motivation for pursuing an Engineering or MBA is Money. No Passion, No quest for knowledge nothing else. The high pay checks these courses bring is the only motivation for Indian middle class to pursue these courses.

If you stop any young fellow and ask him what is his life’s goal? What he want to be in life? one sure answer pops up. “I’ve to earn lot of money within a short span of time. Retire early and Enjoy life”. (Off course their is an exception). There is no passion for what they do. There is no interest to work either.  What else can you expect from these people? There is a single system to measure the success of a person - Money. How much money you are making defines how successful you are in life. Nothing else.  

It all started with the typical Indian Middle class mentality. We associate every problem of ours with the lack of money. “If we had more money then we would not have faced this problem'” is what most of us and our parents think. We just see the one face of money. We don’t know the problems of having more money. We and our parents want us to study only those degrees that pays more. Passion, Interests, Talents are all crap if you cannot make more money than your neighbor with your talents.

We don’t hesitate to work if it pays more even if it’s late night shifts, tight schedules, high pressures, unhealthy working conditions, and even just a copy paste job also we don’t bother. Is there a way out? when our mindset, attitudes will change?

Talent Crunch or just Labor Crunch?


After IT boon in India the word “Talent Crunch” has become a cliché. You can see every now and then people from IT Industry some times even from other industries complain that their is a talent crunch. So what is Talent and What is Talent crunch?

Majority of these complaints comes from IT Industry. If we observe the kind of work people do in IT industry it doesn’t need lot of talent either. If few key people (Really talented)provided with some skilled employees can manage the whole scenario. Yes! you read it right what the industry needs is skilled manpower. (Another cliché / fancy word for labor).

Talent cannot be imbibe into anyone. Talent comes by birth. Talent is gifted by birth. Only thing you can do is explore it. People should be provided with a n environment and activities that helps them to explore what talent they have. You cannot train people to be talented. Otherwise you can create thousands of Sachins and A R Rahmans by training them. Only thing we can do is improve the skills and knowledge.

It’s not the rocket science that the IT Industry is working on for requirement of high talent. British Educated Indians in Pre-Independence era just to create clerks who follow the instructions of British officers. Still we are following the same education system that British's left to us some 60 years ago.  With such an education system how can we create Bill Gate, Steve Jobs, Sergie Brin and Larry page?

Readers are Leaders : Leaders are Readers


Here's an astounding fact - Readers make more money - a lot more!   (Even in tough economic times.) According to a number of recent studies*, business people who read at least seven business books a year earn over 2.3 times more than those who read only one book per year.
One reason is they have a constant flow of new ideas and strategies they can use to help their careers, their teams and their companies. And given all the layoffs and other challenges during this recession, isn't doing everything you can to help your team and your company the best way to not only safeguard your career, but to help it grow? Where can you find a stream of new and practical ideas to drive your success? From the world's business experts.
Many of them have written books offering their proven strategies and winning ideas.
The problem ... who has time to do all that reading?
A recent study** found that while 74.9% of all managers understand the correlation between reading and competitive advantage, they simply don't have the time. This is directly impacting their careers — and incomes!

The solution...
The Institute for Supply Management has teamed up with The Business Source to offer concise summaries of books you need to read. Each month, learn best practices and powerful insights from leading-edge thinkers, industry experts and renowned business gurus.
The summaries take just 15 minutes to read and you get two summaries monthly, so your total time investment is only 30 minutes a month!

Book Review : Off course I Love You till I find Someone Better


In one one sentence I can say Off Course I Love you is for lite read. No Philosophy, No Message, bit complicated though. It’s a debut of Durjoy Datta and Maanvi Ahuja. So for a debutant standards it’s a cool book. (Though I am eager to compare it with Chetan Bhagat, I’m avoiding it).

The whole story runs on the grounds of Delhi Hi-fi society. So reaching to masses is doubtful. The Small town guys find this bit difficult to digest and accept the metro hi-fi youth culture on which the story is based on.

If you can go through the first few episodes and bit lengthy pre-climax episodes, it’s definitely a good read.  The climax is ultimate with all kind of cinematic twists and perfect.

Overall for the debutants it’s a good start. They have done a good job (Ignoring the few minor issues). Hope they correct these issues in their future books.  They have lot of potential to improve and grow.

Chetan Bhagat effect on Young Indian Authors


See what this Chetan Bhagat did to Indian youths. Whether his stories inspired the youth in right way or not but many young professionals across the country turned English authors by night. Some of them even the best sellers! Ok any how it’s a good scenario to see young people not just reading but also writing. We got some variety, new and relevant fictions to read.

Chetan’s 4 Books till date Five Point Someone, One Night at the call center, 3 Mistakes of my life, 2 states all are based on college life. (Observe all these books start with a number in their titles) These books reminded today's youth about their college life, love stories and inspired them to write a book. Earlier writing a book was not such simple one. Many think that you have to be a scholar or at least a student of literature and have lot of life experience to write books. But now anyone can write books. Even the success of chetan bhagath’s books inspired publisher’s to believe in today’s youths and their simple stories.  

So while browsing for some light, cool reads I came across some books which are almost in line with chetan’s books, light on story, light on pockets too.  So I’ve purchased 5 books to read. A Romance with a chaos by Nishanth Kaushik, Nothing can be as crazy by Ajay Mohan Jain, Love, a rather bad idea by Anirban Mukherjee, Of Course I love you by Durjoy Datta and Maanvi Ahuja, I too had a love a story by Ravinder Singh. All these books cost me only around 350 bucks purchased online.

Let me see how many of these authors and their books stand the expectations. Soon I’ll publish the reviews here. Watch this space. Flipkart which provides an online book shopping service ships the books for free within India(Orders more than Rs.100/-). The Books will be delivered within 4-5 Business Days.

3 Idiots Effect on IIMA


Finally the 3 Idiots bringing some changes in the country. The core message of the movie Life is more than just an education has touched the people of IIMA. Now IIMA has introduced a new elective course called 'Learning What is Not Taught (LWNT)'. In-house and visiting faculties are adopting the line of 3 Idiots and teaching students to learn about life from beyond the textbooks and curriculum. The course took off on Saturday.

"What the students learn in the classrooms is only the beginning of learning. The rest of the lessons are to be learnt from what life teaches them." Said Executive director of Tata Sons Ltd R Gopalakrishnan who is the lead instructor of LNWT.

The early success in terms of earnings by young professionals creates a illusion that they have achieved a lot and better than their predecessors. It also results in over confidence. But life is not just be successful in terms job and money. It’s more than that.

We hope the leading Management Institute like IIMA bringing in something like this will definitely inspire  the academic industry to follow the same suit.
