Bad Money and Worse!

 


Vivek Kaul’s unsparing and inspired analysis of the shambolic state of Indian banking and the Public Sector Banks owned by the government in his new book, Bad Money: Inside the NPA Mess and How it Threatens the Indian Banking System is hugely fascinating and every bit as horrifying. Thanks to the likes of infamous defaulters on behemoth loans like Nirav Modi and the King of good times, Vijay

“though he could not have controlled the events of his birth and life which had contributed to his misery, he could and should have controlled his actions and striven for a higher standard of nobility.”
Anuja Chandramouli, Arjuna: Saga of a Pandava Warrior-Prince

“Not every story is about a girl who dreams of romance, waiting impatiently and dramatically for a tall, handsome, strong man to fall hopelessly in love with, in the foolish hope that he will protect her from all harm and give her the happily ever after she has always wanted.”
Anuja Chandramouli, Yama’s Lieutenant and the Stone Witch

“He loves her enough not to shackle her to him with chains of attachment. Unlike others, especially you, he does not use love as an excuse to stake his claim, hold her captive to his will and then do as he pleases with her; not that he ever had a choice in the matter, of course. Most importantly, he respects her individuality and simply lets her be. Shiva is never insecure and is content to know that she will always be his better half, even when she needs solitude to follow her own whims to wherever they might lead her!”
Anuja Chandramouli, Shakti: The Feminine Divine
