I felt as if I have traveled so much in this book as the experiences are covered from across continents. Extremely interesting read and definitely informative based on personal experiences and observations. Having spent a few years in London, I was able to relate to the author's stance on so many issues.

Very nice book, as a parent, even though I am not an NRI, there were a lot of takeaways for me.:)
A very clever retelling and a lot fun to read too! It is not easy to adapt something like Mahabharat in context that is contemporary and yet still manage to retain the primary essence of the tale.
Great job! Capturing the essence of the epic with corporate life and told with humour

Treat for the eyes....
Fifteen-years ago, a young AYESHA met VIKRAM and fell in love. But even before she could explore her new-found feelings, their paths took different turns, seemingly never to meet again. Now 34, she is convinced her unspoken first love is beyond her conscious mind. She has carefully built a perfect world around her that includes a dream career and a smart, successful man as a partner.
Vikram, now an Indian Army Major, finds himself missing his first love when he chances upon an old photograph. Fifteen years ago he never got to express his feelings. Now, older and wiser, he knows life is too fickle to wait for perfect moments and he resolves to find Ayesha.
Torn between her past and present, Ayesha tries stay detached when they rekindle their friendship. But when they both discover their love hadn't been unrequited, their emotions overcome better senses and they share a passionate moment. Guilt creeps into Ayesha's being and they decide to part ways yet again. Later, when Rohan proposes marriage in front of her family, she accepts.
An old friend, goads Ayesha to rethink her relationships. But, before she can take a decision, Vikram disappears from her life yet again. Dismayed and even angry, Ayesha tries to accept fate, only to realize her heart continues to beat for Vikram.
Unbeknownst to Ayesha, Vikram is away on a classified mission. A month later, he returns to the news of her engagement. Disheartened, and wanting Ayesha's happiness, he withdraws away from her, never learning of her break-up with Rohan. While seemingly fickle and indifferent in the past, their destinies bring them together once more. Forced into a confrontation, their anger, fears and ego ultimately give way to the passionate love they hold for each other. But are Vikram and Ayesha now ready to go beyond their anger and egos, and act on what fate had planned for them all along?

What will happen if an IIT graduate, with a foreign Master’s, a PhD from Michigan, a postdoctorate from MIT and Harvard, turns down an offer of a faculty position at Stanford University to come back home to India to join a reputable, new university called Federal Comprehensive University at Barakotla. Will he succeed or fail tremendously? “Professors Gone Wild” takes you on a wild journey to find an answer. Barakotla is a historic place, an ancient site of Indus Valley Civilization that existed in third millennium BC and was known for city planning and civil engineering. Satnam Singh Rugga’s passion for Barakotla’s history and commitment to make a difference do bring him back to India, but he soon realizes that he has ended up at not less than a stone age, where “might is right” is still in practice. The world had progressed in other part of the world but not in this campus. On one hand, he has a dream to make FCU a world class university befitting the technological history of the very place, the realities on the other hand is just the opposite. Satnam has to struggle for his own survival because of the tyrannous President of the university, Professor Nagrup. He takes on the morally corrupt University President, but has to first fight an enemy within - his remorse for coming back to India, the resulting depression, alcoholism, resulting hallucinations, and even worse, his memory of being some Raghav Paul who was born in the stone age and brought up in the twenty second century AD. To aid him are just the knowledge about the glorious past, dreams about the splendid future, teachings of his mentor Prof. Mayur Goyal and support of a new colleague Dr. Prembihari Sinha.
