A part time detective Aki Ray is approached by a businessman Banibrata Mazumdar who wants him to investigate a phishing email . Soon afterwards the detective is told by the businessman’s son Chayan that the businessman has disapeared, probably kidnapped. Initially the main suspect is the US based nephew of Banibrata Mazumdar,Abhishek who is in Kolkatta for a holiday.
But closer investigation provides more clues to the identity of the real suspect. On the day of the “kidnapping” ,the businessman’s spinster sister wakes up very late, later it is found out that she has been given a dose of sleeping pills. The son claims to have registered a complaint with the Shakespeare Sarani police station, but on checking the records, it is found out that no complaint was recorded. On further investigation, it is found that Banibrata Mazumdar had actually faked his own kidnapping and was hiding in his own office.
The reason behind this “fake kidnapping” was to ensure that Banibrata Mazumdar’s US based brother Chittabrata Mazumdar did not claim his share of property. It was also apparent that the fake email id was created using the .com extension, when the actual email id used a .edu domain name corresponding to the university where Abhishek studied.
Unlike most fiction books in India today, which are stories of every day life, relationships, travel, this book includes technical/internet related content. However, the real life stories in the internet industry are far more entertaining and unpredictable.

Unlike most of the books reviewed in this blog, this book is not famous, but is nevertheless a good read because it explains scientifically how many of the magic tricks performed by magicians can be replicated by a layman. This is especially important while working online, as identity theft is becoming increasingly common, and the gangs behind identity theft and online scams have perfected the art of creating illusions ,spreading rumours to ruin reputations by putting their targets under surveillance and using their knowlege of human psychology.
Magicians use a combination of accessories, a very good understanding of physics, chemistry and biology (especially human physiology) . For each trick , a short description is provided ,followed by an explanation of how it is performed. For many tricks,usually involving cards some amount of practice is needed before it can be performed convincingly before an audience.
Others like the holy water trick, use different types of chemicals.A black colour drink contains ferrous sulphate, chebulic myrobalan and water. The magician will tell the audience that he will convert the drink into holy water magically. He will pour it into another empty glass (which contains citric acid invisible to the audience) and the liquid will turn colorless. The audience will think it is magic, but actually the color change is because of the chemical reaction.
In real life too, from a distance, it is easy to create an illusion and have people believe in it, but only on close examination, can a person find out what the truth is.

In early 2000’s I came across this book Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies is a book written by Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras on October 26, 1994. The book outlines the results of a six-year research project into what makes enduring great companies.
Taking some cues from the book I started my journey as an entrepreneur with my first venture khojguru.com in 2007. As the book suggested that it is not necessary that a successful business is an idea which does not exist in the industry. The concept of coupons was an already existing model. I just gave it a twist by providing coupons on digital platforms like mobile and internet hence avoiding the cost and hassles involved with physical distribution of coupons.
Today khojguru.com is the destination for free coupons and deals in India. It has been built on a foundation that may see it survive over 100 years of existence much after the founders are gone.
The non fiction book “What Young India Wants” is a collection of essays on different topics. Some of the essays are very generic, but some highlight issues which are not featured in the mainstream media. One is how young India wants to be spoonfed , and does not value hard work. This has been my personal experience with many “young” and often mediocre freelancers, who want everything to be taught to them,and are unwilling to spend any time and money to experiment and learn the hard way.
In another essay “Sparks” is how the spark in a person is killed by unfairness and frustration.To quote “Unfairness – this is hardest to deal with , but unfortunately this is how our country works. People with connections, rich dads, beautiful faces, pedigree, find it easier to make it – not just in Bollywood, but everywhere.” This explains why some industries attract talent and grow rapidly, while others do not. The engineering industry is comparatively fair, as it acknowledges talent and hardwork, an experienced engineer is valued. In any industry, the industry leaders should decide, do they only those connected to them/good looking persons to grow or is merit more important?
“Where’s my Nobel Prize?” talks about why India doesn’t excel on the world stage consistently. Unlike the US where talent is respected, seen as something to be emulated, in India talent is not valued. To quote “a talented person’s stature is below that of someone with connections, hereditary entitlement, pedigree or even experience” The reason could be the traditional caste system in India, which still makes its presence felt even in urban India or how individuals with “genuine talent or merit are criticized because it elevates them above their peers” . As he correctly points out a society where well connected individuals do better than people with ability results in a lot of talent being unused, a waste of national resources, and frustration in people. Most large companies in India are family owned where connections matter, but there are a few professionally managed companies , where talent is also a consideration.

The book Devil in Pinstripes takes a look at the operations of foreign banks and NBFCs in India .The main protagonist of the story Amit Sharma initially works at a bank, New York International Bank and then switches over to a Non Banking Finance Company(NBFC) NFS. An employees loyalties usually lie with the person who has selected him during the interview, who acts as a godfather,( in this case Aditya Bhatnagar) and this is highlighted throughout the book.
In the NBFC he is drawn into a power struggle with Gowri Shanker who has built the sales team . The ego clash which was caused by differences in operating styles as well as personal values, adversely affects the personal life of the Amit Sharma as well as his wife Chanda who also works in the same NBFC. The process of borrower evaluation, DSA’s , graft while both sanctioning loans as well as recovering payments is highlighted.
The book is written in flashback mode, alternating between the time when Amit Sharma is served an arrest warrant when a borrower Tulsiram (and later his family) commits suicide and his career path in the bank. The author has clearly demarcated the hero and villian in the book, every person has his positive and negative points, and balanced characters would be more believable.
Like ‘Devil in Pinstripes’, ‘Keep the change’ is another of the many books set in the Indian banking industry highlighting the work culture and office politics. However, there seem to be none set in the Indian internet industry, highlighting the ethics, value systems and their attitude towards smaller businesses.
