Forthcoming Book

Like This!

It gives me great pleasure to be writing this post on the first day of the new year – 2011. I am happy to share on TalkingTails.in that my first book as a co-author is nearing completion and should be launched by the end of January.

It is called ‘The Fresh Brew: Chronicles of Business and Freedom’ and is about the life stories of 25 inspirational alumni from IIM Lucknow. The book is being co-authored by Amitabh Thakur, an IPS Officer pursuing his Fellow Program in Management (FPM) at IIML and yours truly. 🙂

Needless to say I am both deeply honoured as well as excited that the Foreword has been written by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India – a man of high principles, a leader we all admire and look upto.

Alchemy Publishers are publishing the book and I must say they’ve been great so far. Here’s the cover:

IIM Lucknow’s Manfest 2011: The Launch Video

I’ve always had a good time watching fest videos – Some of the better videos are the Saarang Video (IIT Madras’ Annual Fest) and the Kshitij Video (IIT Kharagpur’s Annual Tech Fest).

But I must admit (at the cost of sounding biased), that one of the best launch / teaser videos that I have seen was the one launched a few days back at IIM Lucknow – Manfest 2011 – IIM Lucknow’s Annual Business Conclave. It is grand, classy, suave and slick.

Take a look..
