Business Maharajas

Business Maharajas

An Insight into Some of India’s Most Powerful Business Tycoons and the Eight of India's most powerful men - DHIRUBHAI HIRACHAND AMBANI, RAHUL KUMAR BAJAJ, ADITYA VIKRAM BIRLA, RAMA PRASAD GOENKA, BRIJ MOHAN KHAITAN, BHARAT AND VIJAY SHAH and RATAN TATA

Instead of concentrating on strategy and strategic decisions, Gita Piramal focuses on the personal experiences, aims, and visions of these important industrialists to expose how they think, how they conduct their businesses, and how they arrive at complex investment decisions involving billions of rupees. Though the book is interesting she fails to portray the maharajas look interesting.

Under the Tuscan Sun

If you are looking for a novel which works faster and is more effective than a sleeping pill, then this is the book for you. Not sure why Frances Mayes wrote this and most of all why I read it...

Alice In Wonderland

People generally interpret this book depending on the phase of life they are in. When I read it I was working in a company with extreme micro management so my interpretation was completely based on my work life. I might read it again to see how I interpret it now.

Some other good books:
7 habits of highly effective people, first things first by Stephen Covey

Grow younger live longer - Deepak Chopra (I want to explore some more books by Deepak Chopra)

Who moved my cheese, one minute manager - Spencer Johnson
