Don't Tell The Governor
Author: Ravi Subramanian | The story is set against the backdrop of the financial services industry. Published by HarperCollins India, his 10th novel weaves a fictional narrative around demonetisation.
"When the Prime Minister declares demonetisation at 8 p.m. on 8 November, 2016, it leaves the nation stunned. But the governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), who should have ideally been party to the decision, is at a crossroads. He has just carried out the most brazen act of his life -yet, it looks like it might also have been his most foolish. Will he be able to pull himself out of the mess he has got into or will he be condemned for life?", the publisher informed IANS about the narrative in the upcoming book.
The Big Reverse: How Demonetization Knocked India Out
Author: Meera Sanyal | This non-fiction story is published by HarperCollins India. Describing demonetisation as a black swan event in Indian history, the book, according to the publisher, will provide "the most comprehensive analysis of the policy, its execution and pitfalls". It will present unprecedented insights backed by data, history and research, and as a result, answer the questions that still continue to haunt Indians, on the what, why and how of demonetisation.
Of Counsel: The Challenges of the Modi-Jaitley Economy
Author: Arvind Subramanian | The book is published under the name Penguin Random House India and is written by former Chief Economic Advisor (CEA), whose trusteeship saw the country through one of the most hotly contested and turbulent periods of economic governance and policymaking in recent decades -from the demonetisation to the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax, or GST.
A Stranger Truth: Lessons in Love, Leadership and Courage from India's Sex Workers
Author: Ashok Alexander | This book is released by Juggernaut publishing house. When Alexander left a high-profile corporate job to head Avahan, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's programme to stem the growth of the HIV epidemic in India, he was plunged into a world far removed from the comfort zones he had lived and worked in all his life. It was a grinding place where women sold themselves for Rs 50 and 14-year-olds injected drugs. It was the shadow world of transgenders and of young gay men in a country that still criminalised same-sex love.
