The story of Anupama who is afflicted by leukoderma but rebuilds her shattered life, importance of "status" and lack of scientific temper in India today. Also on how some doctors in India , who despite having a formal science education do not overcome the superstitions, meaningless rituals and blind faith in dealing with people in their personal life. They sometimes lack sympathy while treating their patients.

One of the best books I have read about real Indian culture, society and morals. Reading this book helps me understand why
- it is so difficult for a entrepreneur with only professional qualifications and experience but no family background or community support to establish himself or herself
- ecommerce has not taken off

Ambani & Sons By Hamish McDonald is an updated /revised version of the author's earlier book, The Polyester Prince - the rise of Dhirubhai Ambani. The Polyester Prince was never published in India , and today 2 used copies are available online at Amazon for $909.90 and $999 + shipping (the list price of the book was $15.95) .
The book provides information on the family background of the Ambanis, their Modh Bania community , the financial network, political connections and affiliations and their rise to become the richest Indians in the country. The most interesting part of this book for me was the intelligence network developed by Indian family owned businesses to keep track of current and potential allies and rivals, something they don't teach you in college and a job in conventional big companies.

In recent months , I have greatly increased reading of books and magazines because
- The quality of the online content available is poor
- the same advertising is shown repeatedly
It is also much more simpler to order books online.
Reviewing the many books that I have stacked at home.
