Decoding Bollywood — By Sonia Golani

Some like Farah Khan and Zoya Akhtar had sterling antecedents but it took a tough childhood and intermittent assignments on film sets to win the box office with Om Shanti Om and Zindagi na milegi dobara, while Ashutosh Gowarikar auditioned for folk dances and failed with his debut film, lagaan created cinematic history and Anurag Basu had to first dance as a background extra and later overcome cancer to witness barfi win hearts and awards. These and other hitherto unfamiliar stories of directors belonging to the “100 crore club” like Rohit Shetty and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the adventurous Kabir Khan and the maverick, Mahesh Bhatt take us through the unusual lives of 15 filmmakers of extraordinary films.

Fall Like a Rose Petal by AVIS Viswanathan

 In early 2008, the author AVIS Viswanathan and Vaani his soul-mate, friend, wife and bus
iness partner were staring at a bankruptcy of their Firm. A series of business decisions had literally brought them to the brink of penury, This book is their story, it captures learnings from this excruciatingly painful, Life-changing, phase that they are still going through.
It also explores the nature and continuum of Life. There is no beginning to the story, There is no end either, There are simply experiences, of hopelessness, of fear, of insolvency, of pennilessness and also of faith, patience, love, companionship, abundance and soul, of integrity and of leading a principled Life, despite temptations to take the easy way out of painful or messy situations.

Yatrik — By Arnab Ray

‘Anushtup Chatterjee, I am really sorry to have to tell you this. But you have died.’
Anushtup Chatterjee is thirty-two years old. He hates his mother. His job is a dead end. And his girlfriend has left him.
Then one silent moonlit night, he wakes up in a deserted field in the middle of nowhere, with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. His wallet is gone. So is his cell phone.
He is not alone though.
There is another man there, a stranger with a gentle voice and a humble mustache, who has something
rather unbelievable to say to him. That he, Anushtup Chatterjee, has already died. Mysterious and achingly poignant, Arnab Ray’s Yatrik is a story about hope and aspiration, love and regret, of the choices we make and those that life makes for us.
