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....
Have you ever heard of a manager intruding into the personal lives of the members of his team?
At a time when Siddhartha Verma is at an all-time low in his personal and professional life, a tragedy strikes. This transforms him forever. His philosophy of life changes and he goes out of his way, often using unconventional means, to make his workplace happy. This includes making a series of intrusions, at his risk, into the personal lives of his team members, in order to understand their real problems and try to resolve them. It leads him through a series of uncertain, yet intriguing experiences.
How does he deal with a couple, estranged for twelve years? And an inveterate drug addict? And a young man sunk in the debt created by his late father? Often going into flashback mode, the story cruises through some intense and wacky episodes in Sid’s life.
Where does this journey lead Sid to? What about his own life? A celebration of the life of the omnipresent urban working professional, "An Intent Intruder" attempts to take the reader through a series of twists and turns and explore for themselves!
Draupadi or Krishnaa as she was known and Karna or Vasusena as was his real name are one of the two most intriguing characters of the Mahabharata.
Legends and Folk tales have abounded of their secret passion for one another.
This story is one among the plethora of tales dealing with the forbidden love of these two great characters.
Book One, titled The Fire Does not Consume is written exclusively from Draupadi’s POV and it deals with her life as a Princess, a Bride, a Queen and finally as an Exile.
Through these pages, the reader gets an insight into the heart of the most enigmatic woman of her times.
Book Two titled The Sun Does Not Scorch is written from Karna POV dealing with his life as a charioteer’s son, a King, a warrior and finally as the elder brother of his most hated enemies.
Through these pages, the reader is shown the life of the tragic hero that was Karna.
And through their eyes, a glimpse of the world in which they lived, a world that is long gone, a world that was Aryavarta
'You are in real, real danger’ – a school teacher gets a creepy warning in his mailbox. Seven days later, he massacres eleven of his own students. Two months later, he is gunned down in broad daylight by an obscure militant outfit.
Justice served. The nation pacified. Case closed, the police say. But, two crime reporters think otherwise.
Seeking redemption through this case are Prakash and Seema, ace journalists in their professional lives, but broken individuals in the darkness of their personal hells. As they dig deeper into the mystery, they are led into the ominous forests of Bandhavgarh where an eerily similar massacre had occurred eight years ago.
Little do they know that they have kicked a wasp’s nest.
One by one their leads start turning up in body bags and they are chased by assassins at every corner. Soon they would realize that they are pitted against evil powers pervading the business and political DNA of the country, with an unbelievably sinister agenda.
As a massive terrorist strike looms over the nation, will Prakash and Seema survive long enough uncover a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions?
